Concepts and research processes that permit the transfer of basic to applied research and vice versa.
Clinical practice should ideally be based on the best available scientific evidence. However 1/3 of the patients received treatments of proven effectiveness; 1 of 4 of the patients receive treatments that are unnecessary or potentially dangerous; and the 1 of 2 doctors does not catch the evidence they need to make decisions. To reduce this gap between the best available evidence and decision making in clinical practice it is necessary to develop skills to assess the credibility of the scientific literature, properly interpret the results of the studies and apply them in a judicious manner in the individual patient.
Largely, these knowledge and skills overlap with those needed to conduct clinical research, a central activity of the health professions, and shows them the requirement to perform the FINAL DEGREE PROJECT.
Translational research is the process of the transfer of knowledge from basic science to clinical practice through effective preventive or therapeutic interventions, requires constant interaction, a deliberate exchange of resources and knowledge, whose purpose is to achieve basic science discoveries to result in benefit of the patients. In this type of research the researcher looking at sujetospacientes, through its observacionesintervenciones, information on the frequency of diseases, factors that increase the risk, and methods to identify them, as well as interventions that can help their prevention, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment, unlike what happens with basic research on this type of research is more emphasis on the applicability of findings to help make practice the decisions about the care of the health of the sujetospacientes. Within this subject special emphasis on learning of clinical epidemiology and medicine based on the evidence, disciplines that undoubtedly will be of particular relevance in clinical practice of the physician of the 21st century.
This course aims to:
1 Enable the student to carry out supervised clinical research
2. Develop skills to find, assess and critically apply scientific evidence for decision making in the field of the health professions.
