BENITEZ QUEVEDO, Gloria; ABAY DEBS, Vivian  y  MONZON TORRES, Luis. Results in the upgrading program for the cadres registered for the health management diploma's course in Camagüey province. Rev Cubana Salud Pública [online]. 2013, vol.39, n.2, pp.229-241. ISSN 0864-3466.

Introduction: health management diploma's course was aimed at providing the cadres of this sector with the necessary knowledge in management sciences to face the challenges imposed by the development of the national health care system of Cuba. Objectives: to assess the results of the upgrading course for the cadres registered for the health management diploma's course in Camaguey province in the 2009-2010 academic year. Methods: observational and descriptive study of 25 cadres out of 30, who finished the course. The results of the initial and of the final tests were compared, based on a self-report survey and on the participants' opinions about the course. Results: the answers of the participants to the public health questions were all right, but low results were observed in terms of use of the scientific information and health research. They stated that their expectations had been exceeded and that the learning gained had been useful for their performance as health managers; they also highly assessed the organization of the course, the quality of the educational process and the usefulness of their final papers linked to their professional practice. Conclusions: the application of a training strategy focused on solving the learning requirements through a developing teaching process allows achieving favorable changes in upgrading and helping to an integrated formation of the cadres. The learned lessons direct us to the improvement of the teaching program and to the research into the impact of this diploma's course on the performance of these cadres as health managers.
