Resumen

DAVO-BLANES, M. Carmen et al. Public health competencies and contents in Spanish university degree programs of physical therapy, occupational therapy, environmental science, dentistry and veterinary science. Gac Sanit [online]. 2014, vol.28, n.2, pp.123-128. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gaceta.2013.06.008.

Objective: To identify the basic competencies and contents related to public health to be included in degree programs according to the perspective of lecturers from various Spanish universities. Method: In the context of the Second Workshop on Public Health Contents in Degree Programs (Mahon, 19 to 20 September 2012), 20 lecturers from different Spanish universities were distributed in five working groups. The lecturers had been selected from the instructional guides on public health and epidemiology published on the web sites of the Rectors' Conference of Spanish Universities. Each group worked on a degree program and the results were discussed in plenary sessions. Results: The activities and competencies related to the three basic functions of public health were identified in all degree programs. Most of the professional competencies identified were related to the function of "assessment of population health needs". The contents proposed by the working groups related to epidemiology, basic concepts in public health, public health intervention, health management, and health policy. The main common topics among the degrees concerned the first three contents. Conclusions: Public health professional competencies and contents were identified in the degree programs examined. These results may serve as a starting point for a more detailed review of public health programs across degree levels and the search for a consensus on the common content that should be included in each of them.
