FABELO ROCHE, Justo Reinaldo; IGLESIAS MORE, Serguei; GONZALEZ LOPEZ, Alejandro David  y  NARANJO FUNDORA, Willian. Formation of human capital for the prevention and attention of the addictions. Educ Med Super [online]. 2014, vol.28, n.2, pp.301-317. ISSN 0864-2141.

Introduction: for those who are being formed as health professionals, the development of abilities and competencies for the prevention and care of addictions is a top priority. On the basis of this premise, they will be able to face this health problem and to control this scourge that afflicts the mankind. Objectives: to describe the results of the application of the academic formation strategy for the prevention and care of addictions developed by the Center for the Academic Development on Drug Dependence (CEDRO) in the period of 2008 to 2013. Methods: a non-experimental and descriptive study based on a mixed design in two sequential stages. The quantitative and qualitative approaches were used separately. The analysis units were the educational programs and a group of experts in addictions. Documentary analysis and interview were the techniques used for this purpose. Results: generally speaking, the contents on addictions are included in the formative programs of health professionals in Cuba. Nevertheless, some specific inadequacies were identified. The strategy of academic formation has been useful to supplement the received formation and to refine abilities and competitions. Conclusions: five years after the study about the contents on addictions included in the medical science careers, in which some inadequacies were identified, a successful academic formation strategy has been developed both at undergraduate and graduate educations.
