Teaching Resource: Medicine


To what extent did war change medicine? This teaching resource for Key Stage 3 explores the development of medicine throughout the war and examines the ways the war was responsible for these changes. Using sources from St Bartholomew's Hospital and The Royal London Hospital Archives these teaching packs allow pupils to explore how society and women in particular were affected by the changes in medicine.

The Medicine activity sheet offers teachers suggestions of how to use the primary source material in the classroom.
