ROJAS IZQUIERDO, María Miladis  y  GONZALEZ ESCALONA, Marbel Elvira. Communicative skills in the health professional training process. Educ Med Super [online]. 2018, vol.32, n.3, pp.236-243. ISSN 0864-2141.

The professional training model of the Cuban medical university includes communication skills as an essentially valuable requirement to solve professional problems that come up in diverse communicative situations. The objective of this research is to assess the need for developing of communication skills in the training processes of the medical sciences university, based on the developmental approach of Cuban education currently promoted. This historical-logical study allowed to know the different authors and assumed stances regarding communicative skills in order to identify how their development has been addressed. The historical-cultural theory permitted understanding human development resulting from activity and communication, in a process of socialization, which, contextualized to medical education, highlights the direct effect of communication skills on the quality of health services. The document analysis of programs of study, as curricular strategies, allowed to identify insufficient curricular space to promote the development of such skills as a response to the demands declared in the health professional model; while some studies are consistent with a deficit of works that explicitly analyze the importance of communicative culture. To conclude, the need to develop communication skills in the health professional aims to make scientifically based methodological proposals that ensure higher qualitative levels in this respect.

Palabras clave : communicative skills; training processes; developmental approach in Cuba education; activity and communication.
