Educación Médica Continua (EMC)

Jorge Dagnino Sepúlveda

Resumen


La educación médica continua (EMC) puede ser definida como todo medio o conjunto de ellos dirigidos a cambiar la conducta de un médico de manera de mejorar permanentemente los resultados de su actuar con los pacientes, individualmente, en una comunidad o en un sistema de salud. Los modelos prevalentes de EMC no aseguran estos resultados, por lo que es necesario un esfuerzo sostenido y sistemático de todas las partes involucradas: los individuos, las escuelas de Medicina y sociedades científicas, los entes acreditadores y certificadores y las instituciones de salud. La EMC debe ser autodirigida, basada en la responsabilidad individual, iniciarse con la determinación de necesidades de aprendizaje fundada en la práctica diaria, seguir con la identificación de soluciones para los problemas o brechas encontrados, con un aprendizaje experimental y el uso secuencial de diferentes metodologías que mejor aseguren el cambio conductual, el impacto real en el cuidado de los pacientes y su mantención en el tiempo. Para ello, debe iniciarse en el pregrado de la escuela de Medicina, perfeccionarse en el postítulo y seguir durante toda la vida activa del médico. Basar la educación y la práctica en la mejor evidencia disponible, en un enfoque sistémico y en el mejoramiento de la calidad es la mejor esperanza para generar estos resultados y prolongarlos en el tiempo.

Palabras clave
