PINEDA PEREZ, Eloy Jesús  y  REYES LOPEZ, Cristina. Training Course for Family Doctors about Biopsychosocial Cares for Children with Down Syndrome. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2021, vol.37, n.1, e1102.  Epub 01-Abr-2021. ISSN 0864-2125.

Introduction:

Children with Down syndrome present high comorbidity, a reason why it is necessary to maintain training for family doctors for the control and prevention of such conditions.

Objective:

To assess a training course targeted at family doctors about biopsychosocial care for children with Down syndrome.

Methods:

A quasiexperimental study was carried out using a before-after design with a study group and a control group. In a first stage, or pretest, a questionnaire was applied to both groups. Afterwards, the training course was given to the study group. In the last stage, or post-test, the same questionnaire was used again for the two groups, after which the level of knowledge reached was determined.

Results:

Before receiving the training course, 7 (26.9%) family doctors in the study group obtained an acceptable rating. After receiving the course, it increased to 22 (84.6%). The mean and standard difference was higher in the study group compared to the control group.

Conclusions:

With the training course designed and given to family doctors, the knowledge about biopsychosocial care for children with Down syndrome increased.
