GOMEZ-BATISTE, X. et al. Continuing education and teaching plans in a comprehensive cancer centre: strategy and implementation. Educ. méd. [online]. 2011, vol.14, n.1, pp.57-58. ISSN 1575-1813.

Introduction: The Oncology Catalonian Institute (ICO) launched the training and education unit (UFiD) in 2006, in order to enhance professional development, dissemination of knowledge and quality of the oncology care. Here are described the tune-up of this process and the results of the training needs survey carried out among the professionals and collectives of the centre. Materials and methods: Training and educational actions deployed during 2008 and 2009 and its evaluation results are presented. A total of 60 training activities were carried out in which 719 students of all professional categories participated, and with a score of participant's satisfaction of 7.8 out of 10. In the area of education, the paths of the different services were reorganized and new initiatives were supported. A total of 3 masters, 3 post-graduate degrees, 59 update courses with semi-presential (blended learning) methodology and 19 on-line methodology courses, all of them with academic accreditation were imparted with a satisfaction average score of 8 out of 10. Results and conclusions: The activity carried out by the UFiD during this period, has made possible to articulate the continuing training based on the study of the professionals needs. This has allowed promoting the professional development and the quality of the care. Supporting existing training activities and promoting new initiatives encourage the dissemination of knowledge in the area of oncology and has positioned us as a centre committed to oncology training.
