CRUZ MARTINEZ, Irene; MONTERO MONTERO, Revis; EREAUX GIRON, Mirna and MACHADO JIMENEZ, Bernardo. Virtual library for training of the technologist in electromedicine: feasibility of its implementation . MEDISAN [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.1, pp. 35-40. ISSN 1029-3019.
An exploratory study was conducted in 20 second year-technologists in electromedicine and 6 teachers from the Faculty of Health Technology in Santiago de Cuba, selected through a purposive sampling at the Center for Clinical Engineering and Electromedicine in order to assess the feasibility of the implementation of a virtual library in the training of these professionals, for which a socialization workshop was carried out during November 2010. It was found that this software product was feasible as reference tool and teaching support, aimed at increasing the students' knowledge on the wide variety of electromedical devices that are relevant to them.
