LORIA-CASTELLANOS, J.; MARQUEZ-AVILA, G.  and  VALLADARES-ARANDA, M.A.. Clinical skills at the pediatric patient with severe asthma of Pediatrics and Emergency residents. Educ. méd. [online]. 2010, vol.13, n.4, pp.247-254. ISSN 1575-1813.

Aim. To develop, validate and implement a tool to assess the clinical competence of pediatric residents and medical emergencies to pediatric patients with severe asthma. Subjects and methods. An observational study approved by the research committee. The instrument was built through five problematized clinical cases, validated by consensus by experts in pediatrics, emergency and educational research, obtaining a final version of 150 items with a consistency of 0.89. It evaluated 10 pediatric residents and 21 of emergency. We performed a nonparametric statistical analysis. Results. Most residents (79.73%) were located in low-very low levels of clinical competence, none reached higher levels. Statistical tests found no differences between academic degrees or specialty. Conclusions. The educational process that these students have had seems to favor the development of reflection, which could limit its actual practice.
