GONZALEZ-GARCIA, María; CANTABRANA, Begoña  y  HIDALGO, Agustín. News about medicine and health in a national newspaper. Potential educational use in health sciences students. Rev Med Cine [online]. 2020, vol.16, n.3, pp.223-234.  Epub 16-Nov-2020. ISSN 1885-5210.

Press news have a potential educational interest in students of health sciences for several reasons: a) they are frequent; b) cover, at least partially, the social demand for health information; c) provide information on incidental events in an agile manner, which favors critical debate; d) allow the social appropriation of knowledge of health professions including health education; e) allow to know the diffusion of medical language; f) Provide the sociological context that can condition, at least in part, the disease, its social image and the measures that the public systems put into operation for the care of citizens; g) facilitate the development of critical analysis skills, documentation and communication skills; and h) adapt well to the use of different teaching methodologies. The article proposes aspects of formative interest to which press news can contribute, and presents examples for addressing some of them.

Palabras clave : press news; medical education; analysis and communication skills; social aspects of medicine and medicines.
