PELEGRINO CALLIS, Georgia Lucila; CONGER CASTELLANO, Rosa Delia; PENA MACIAS, Sergio  and  DEL TORO BASULTO, César. First aids extracurricular course to medicine students for rescuing learning. MEDISAN [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.6, pp.761-769. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive and cross-sectional study of 62 medicine students who attended extracurricular courses in the provincial Red Cross office in Santiago de Cuba, was carried out in order to learn how to carry out first aids to save lives, as well as to supplement their training for attitudes and values. Three courses were carried out (2 in 2014 and one in 2015) with 20 hours each one, from 5:00 to 9:00 pm. Of the registered students, 36 Cubans and 19 foreigners concluded the theoretical-practical final exam (88.7%). Those that passed this exam received certificates that would credit them as trained in basic first aids and would allow them to work as voluntary rescuers in cases of disaster
