Life sciences and clinical skills can be taught together, as Katherine Rogers and Wesley Sterling explain.
Undergraduate nursing and midwifery students commonly have a limited background in the sciences, and there has been a long-standing debate about how subjects such as anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology should be taught.
Recent research suggests that the issue is less about who teaches these subjects and more about the integration of science education in the context of clinical skills and the social sciences.
