  1. Attitudes of medical students to necropsy.

    Article - En anglais

    Aim-To compare the attitudes of students towards the necropsy at different stages of their undergraduate career.

    Method-Students in the first, fourth and sixth academic years (n=283) were asked to respond anonymously to a questionnaire comprised of 26 attitude statements.

    These statements dealt with the importance of the necropsy in medicine, rapport with the bereaved family and emotional reactions to the necropsy.

    Results

    Of the students, 226 (80%) completed the questionnaire.

    Overall, the students agreed on the importance of the necropsy.

    The three groups differed in 10 statements on the approach to the bereaved family and emotional reactions to the necropsy.

    First year students showed more personal involvement and would have more difficulties in approaching the family of the deceased as well as in attending a necropsy.

    These reactions were increasingly less noticeable with fourth and sixth year students.

    The latter group was also more inclined to accept cremation, organ donation and necropsy of their own corpses.

    Conclusion-The changes in attitudes towards the necropsy throughout undergraduate study may reflect both the influence of psychological defense mechanisms and the viewing of necropsy as a relevant tool in medical practice.

    Necropsy should be carefully and sensitively incorporated into programmes designed to teach students about death and dying. (...)
