PEREZ SANCHEZ, América M  y  MARTIN LINARES, Xiomara. Educación en valores en el profesional de Ciencias Médicas. Rev Cubana Salud Pública [online]. 2003, vol.29, n.1, pp.65-72. ISSN 0864-3466.

The humanistic orientation of the health professional is the result of a process that should be developed along his training in Higher Education and that's why it is necessary an axiological thinking allowing him to understand the ideological basis of of his acting in his working activity to the light of the demands of this time. The convulsive period embracing the last century of the existance of humanity has been characterized by the caducity and crisis of many of the values (moral, aesthetic, religious, political, etc) that were considered eternal and immovable in previous periods. This has been conditioned by the presence of real and daily problems the society has to face and that have generated the appearance of new values and the conformation of systems of opposed values that contrast themselves even at the international level. As the own dynamics of the social development brought about the appearance of the axiological thinking, it is increasingly necessary in the medical thought an axiological interpretation of the questions approached in it and of the answers given to the problems arising in the health professional-patient relationship resulting from the development attained in the spheres of science and technique in the health sector. The teaching of values is a process that begins with the attention and education of the child in the family setting and extends to the University. For a health professional it is not only important to receive an education rich in values contributing not only to the strengthening of the humanistic formation, but also to understand completely the process of asessment underlying in the health professional-patient relationship
