MANUSCRIPT: Reflective Journals: Unmasking student perceptions of anatomical education

In medical education, reflection has been considered to be a core skill in professional competence. The anatomy laboratory is an ideal setting for faculty/student interaction and provides invaluable opportunities for active learning and reflection on anatomical knowledge. This study was designed to record student attitudes regarding human cadaveric dissection, explore

MANUSCRIPT: Determinants and outcomes of motivation in health professions education: a systematic review based on self-determination theory

PURPOSE: This study aimed at conducting a systematic review in health professions education of determinants, mediators and outcomes of students' motivation to engage in academic activities based on the self-determination theory's perspective. METHODS: A search was conducted across databases (MEDLINE, CINHAL, EMBASE, PsycINFO, and ERIC databases), hand-search of relevant journals, grey literature, and

MANUSCRIPT: Ultrasound-based lectures on cardiovascular physiology and reflexes for medical students

Ultrasound has become a widely used diagnostic technique. While its role in patient evaluation is well known, its utility during preclinical courses such as anatomy and physiology is becoming increasingly recognized. The aim of the present study was to assess the feasibility/utility of integrating ultrasound-based sessions into conventional undergraduate medical

MANUSCRIPT: eLearning to facilitate the education and implementation of the Chelsea Critical Care Physical Assessment

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of eLearning in the widespread standardised teaching, distribution and implementation of the Chelsea Critical Care Physical Assessment (CPAx) tool-a validated tool to assess physical function in critically ill patients. DESIGN: Prospective educational study. An eLearning module was developed through a conceptual framework, using the four-stage technique for skills

MANUSCRIPT: Social Media in Health Science Education: An International Survey

BACKGROUND: Social media is an asset that higher education students can use for an array of purposes. Studies have shown the merits of social media use in educational settings; however, its adoption in health science education has been slow, and the contributing reasons remain unclear. OBJECTIVE: This multidisciplinary study aimed to examine health

MANUSCRIPT: Leveraging Social Media to Promote Evidence-Based Continuing Medical Education

IMPORTANCE: New dissemination methods are needed to engage physicians in evidence-based continuing medical education (CME). OBJECTIVE: To examine the effectiveness of social media in engaging physicians in non-industry-sponsored CME. DESIGN: We tested the effect of different media platforms (e-mail, Facebook, paid Facebook and Twitter), CME topics, and different "hooks" (e.g., Q&A, clinical pearl and best

MANUSCRIPT: Attitudes and Perceptions of Medical Undergraduates Towards Mobile Learning (M-learning)

NTRODUCTION: Mobile technology is one of the latest extensions of technological innovations that can be integrated into medical education. With the aid of these devices, students learn faster outside the classroom by having quick access to the internet and easy retrieval of required health related learning resources to keep alongside of

MANUSCRIPT: Using Technology, Bioinformatics and Health Informatics Approaches to Improve Learning Experiences in Optometry Education, Research and Practice

Rapid advances in ocular diagnostic approaches and emerging links of pathological changes in the eye with systemic disorders have widened the scope of optometry as the front line of eye health care. Expanding professional requirements stipulate that optometry students get a meticulous training in relevant information and communication technologies (ICT)

MANUSCRIPT: Patients as teachers: a randomised controlled trial on the use of personal stories of harm to raise awareness of patient safety for doctors in training

BACKGROUND: Patient safety training often provides learners with a health professional's perspective rather than the patient's. Personal narratives of health-related harm allow patients to share their stories with health professionals to influence clinical behaviour by rousing emotions and improving attitudes to safety. AIM: This study measured the impact of patient narratives used to

MANUSCRIPT: Key characteristics of successful quality improvement curricula in physician education: a realist review

PURPOSE: Quality improvement (QI) is a common competency that must be taught in all physician training programmes, yet, there is no clear best approach to teach this content in clinical settings. We conducted a realist systematic review of the existing literature in QI curricula within the clinical setting, highlighting examples of
