Sinnayah, Puspha; Rathner, Joseph A.; Loton, Daniel; Klein, Rudi; Hartley, Peter – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Bioscience is a foundational unit (subject) of undergraduate allied health degree programs, providing students the scientific basis underpinning their clinical practice. However, despite its significance, bioscience is a difficult academic hurdle for many students to master. The introduction of active learning strategies, including small…

Cerchiara, Jack A.; Kim, Kerry J.; Meir, Eli; Wenderoth, Mary Pat; Doherty, Jennifer H. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The basis for understanding neurophysiology is understanding ion movement across cell membranes. Students in introductory courses recognize ion concentration gradients as a driving force for ion movement but struggle to simultaneously account for electrical charge gradients. We developed a 17-multiple-choice item assessment of students'…

Clarke, Martina A.; Sharma, Neeru M.; Schiller, Alicia M. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Scientific advocacy and outreach programs are encouraged to increase public understanding of scientific knowledge and generate interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers. However, evaluation of these events' effectiveness is difficult and somewhat rare. This study's purpose was to better understand how effective…

Langdon, Jody; Botnaru, Diana T.; Wittenberg, Megan; Riggs, Amy Jo; Mutchler, Jessica; Syno, Matthew; Caciula, Manuela C. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of different metacognitive interventions on knowledge and regulation of cognition, as well as academic performance (i.e., exam and final grades) in three sections of an undergraduate human anatomy and physiology course. All targeted classes were randomly assigned to one of three groups…

Kay, Denise; Pasarica, Magdalena – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Faculty dissatisfaction with diminishing levels of student engagement in lifestyle medicine sessions prompted this exploratory project that compared differences in students' substantive engagement in medical preclinical and clinical level lifestyle medicine sessions. The preclinical and clinical level sessions had the same learning objectives and…

Woodley, Sarah K.; Freeman, Peter E.; Ricketts, Tiffany D. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
To better prepare physiology students for 21st century careers, we incorporated classroom-based undergraduate research experiences and service learning/community-engaged learning (SLCE) into a college-level physiology laboratory course. The interventions were incorporated over 4 yr and assessed using validated surveys of student-reported learning…

Faggioni, Thaís; Ferreira, Natiele Carla da Silva; Lopes, Renato Matos; Fidalgo-Neto, Antonio Augusto; Cotta-de-Almeida, Vinicius; Alves, Luiz Anastacio – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The use of computers as a pedagogical resource is currently on the rise. In the case of immunology, students present difficulties in visualizing molecular phenomena. Thus the use of animations and simulations available on the internet might facilitate the learning of complex immunological concepts. In this context, it is important to map and…

Slominski, Tara; Grindberg, Sarah; Momsen, Jennifer – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Human Anatomy and Physiology (HAP) has long been recognized as a difficult course. A 2007 study (Michael J. "Adv Physiol Educ" 31: 34-40, 2007) sought to better understand this difficulty by asking faculty for their perceptions of why students struggle to learn in HAP. Later research built on these findings by investigating why students…

Johnson, Shereé M.; Owens, Tamara L.; O'Neil, Jahn N. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Although human patient simulation (HPS) began more than a decade ago, substantial evidence argues for increased use of simulation in teaching basic science courses, such as physiology and the full integration of simulation into medical school curricula so as to benefit both educators and learners. The introduction and application of simulation in…

De Lira, Claudio Andre Barbosa; Viana, Ricardo Borges; Luz, Nina Franco; De Santana, Marcos Gonçalves; Campos, Mário Hebling; Vancini, Rodrigo Luiz; Andrade, Marília Santos – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The textbook is a pedagogical tool that provides students and professionals with scientific information. As exercise is an important strategy for the prevention and treatment of noncommunicable diseases, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and arterial hypertension, the presence of correct and up-to-date scientific information in exercise…

Soares, Gabriela M.; Zangerolamo, Lucas; Rosa, Lucas R. O.; Branco, Renato C. S.; Carneiro, Everardo M.; Barbosa-Sampaio, Helena Cristina – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Obesity and diabetes are two of the biggest public health problems in the modern world. One possible way to combat the rising prevalence of these diseases is through the spread of awareness about its consequences and how to prevent them. Therefore, educational interventions focused on teaching the physiological basis of these conditions might be…

Dirks-Naylor, Amie J.; Cook, Corbin; Nhean, Pov – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Pharmacy school applications have steadily declined over the past several years. Thus pharmacy schools are not only searching for effective means to increase enrollment of qualified candidates, but are also focusing on the development of programs to improve academic performance and retention of enrolled students. To address the needs of struggling…

Lertwilaiwittaya, Pongtawat; Sitticharoon, Chantacha; Maikaew, Pailin; Keadkraichaiwat, Issarawan – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The National License Examination step 1 (NLE1), which tests basic medical sciences knowledge in Thailand, is considered to be tough and stressful for medical students due to the large amount of content. This study aimed to determine factors influencing the NLE1 score (NLE1S). The NLE1S, academic achievement, and class attendance were obtained…

Nederveen, Joshua P.; Thomas, Aaron C. Q.; Parise, Gianni – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Prelaboratory tasks are used to facilitate learning and introduce and provide context for laboratory work. The application of first-person perspective (FPP) technology may provide interesting new approaches to providing prelaboratory preparation. However, there is limited knowledge as to whether this perspective is useful or enjoyable for students…

Junsawang, Chuenjit; Jittivadhna, Karnyupha; Luealamai, Sutha; Pookboonmee, Renu – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Basic life support (BLS) knowledge is a necessity for nursing students, as they have to deal with cardiac arrest events during their professional career. Existing studies indicate poor BLS knowledge among health science students, including nursing students. Learning BLS requires an understanding of basic sciences, such as anatomy, physiology, and…
