Resumen

RODRIGUEZ PEREZ, Maylin et al. Knowledge about intestinal parasites among the medical personnel. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2014, vol.43, n.1, pp.83-90. ISSN 0138-6557.

Objective: evaluate the level of basic knowledge about intestinal parasites among primary health care doctors. Methods: an anonymous survey was conducted made up of four questions evaluating general knowledge about intestinal parasites and one question about Giardia lamblia, a pathogenic protozoan of high incidence and prevalence in our country. The survey was applied to a group of primary health care doctors between January and March 2011. Results: all the doctors surveyed had errors in their answers to the questionnaire. Despite the fact that correct answers about the topics evaluated exceeded 50 %, the average of correct answers for the 26 items included in the five questions was 20.73 %. Conclusions: primary health care doctors showed insufficient knowledge about intestinal parasites. Hence the need to develop an education program to attenuate those difficulties.

Palabras clave : survey; knowledge; intestinal parasites; Giardia lamblia.
