Video has been widely acclaimed as a very useful educational media for elearning. With widespread use of hand held devices like iPhones, we need suitable formats and ease of use to encourage mLearning in Medicine.

Professor of Clinical Anatomy at Warwick Medical School, Peter Abrahams Author of How the Body Works (A Comprehensive Illustrated Encyclopedia Of Anatomy), has turned his teaching into bite-size anatomy classes which can be downloaded and used by medical students world-wide

The new app, entitled Aspects of Anatomy, provides 38 short teaching videos using real, plastinated prosections of the lungs, thorax and the arm, from shoulder to hand.
The app is available to purchase from the usual iTunes store outlets and costs £4.99.

Margaret covers 3 theories and research into how to apply them to helping people make healthy choices:

* Emotional Awarenes
Facilitating awareness of behaviors through mobile therapy – can your phone be your psychologist?
* Social Psychology
People are very affected by what they think other people are doing – how can we tailor messages that will motivate people to make the right choices?
* Loss Aversion
Loss affects us twice as much in a negative way as gain affects us in a positive way – how can we use this “stick” to help people change?
