GIL-BORRELLI, Christian Carlo; LATASA, Pello; REQUES, Laura  and  ALEMAN, Guadalupe. Development of an instrument for the surveillance of quality indicators in specialized training in Preventive Medicine and Public Health. Gac Sanit [online]. 2015, vol.29, n.5, pp.387-389. ISSN 0213-9111.

This study describes the process of developing an instrument intended for use in assessing satisfaction with the quality of training in preventive medicine and public health for resident physicians. To develop this instrument, the National Survey of Satisfaction with Medical Residency was adapted by an expert panel consisting of 23 resident physicians in preventive medicine and public health belonging to 9 autonomous communities in Spain. The adaptation of the survey to the specialty rotations included new dimensions and items and was evaluated with a 5-point Likert scale. The most important dimensions were planning and the achievement of specific objectives, supervision, delegation of responsibilities, resources and work environment, personal assessment, encouragement, support, and whether the rotation resulted in a publication or research project, etc. The development and utilization of this tool will enable future trainees in preventive medicine and public health to make an informed choice about their training itineraries.
