E l término "competencia" siempre se refiere a "saber ha-cer" algo.

Los clínicos estamos permanentemente negociando con la ignorancia. En realidad nuestras creencias son probabilísticas, y nos conformamos con que nuestras apreciaciones sobre la salud de nuestros pacientes sean plausibles. Vivimos siempre en un equilibrio entre esfuerzo por diagnosticar, pronóstico e información a dar al paciente. A través de alguno...

n our eagerness to control our health we can embrace metaphysical models that explain the vicissitudes of our lives and prescribe preventive behaviors. The model we call "of natural life" proposes that a strict life regime is capable of preventing chronic diseases and even reversing its course. It is a very widespread model and sometimes justifies...

The conversations of clinicians about the existence or non-existence of diseases therefore offer data of great interest for social epidemiology. It reveals on the one hand that the concept that the clinicians handle is partly indebted to pragmatism and partly indebted to essentialism. Also that once defined a group of patients based on a pragmatic...

El primero se encarga de procesos automáticos, el segundo los supervisa y analiza la realidad para encontrar nuevas ventanas de oportunidad. Mientras que uno de los papeles que asignamos al S2 es la de ser auto-crítico con...

Pragmatism, as a philosophical option, is concerned with end results and argues that “all our thought-distinctions, however subtle, demand a possible difference of practice.”1 Physicians calculate daily the best plan of action for each patient, following some pragmatic rules: only taking into account different strategies when they lead to different...

Usually in medicine was considered that the technical evaluation and the ethical are different, and that the first has nothing to do with the second. However, it is a mistake to say that science and technology, are completely neutral. Both assessments are based on values and epistemological orientation they have in each historical moment is based o...

The first article of this series on Clinical Safety was dedicated to the epidemiology and systemic preventive policies. In the present review we focus on medical errors with special emphasis on diagnostic type errors. These errors sometimes arise from the elusive characteristics of the disease itself, the way in which the patients present their sym...

In our view, the biopsychosocial model is a vision and an approach to practice rather than an empirically verifiable theory, a coherent philosophy, or a clinical method. In some cases, when that vision is confused with ideologic dogmatism, it can invite abandonment of the vision entirely or in selected situations. The authors suggest that habits of...

The biopsychosocial model is both a philosophy of clinical care and a practical clinical guide. Philosophically, it is a way of understanding how suffering, disease, and illness are affected by multiple levels of organization, from the societal to the molecular. At the practical level, it is a way of understanding the patient's subjective experienc...

While ascribing medical errors primarily to systems factors can free clinicians from individual blame, there are elements of medical errors that can and should be attributed to individual factors. These factors are related less commonly to lack of knowledge and skill than to the inability to apply the clinician's abilities to situations under certa...

Article
The expression of emotion and the sharing of information are determined by cultural factors, consultation time, and the structure of the health care system. Two emblematic situations in Spain - the expression of aggression in the patient-physician encounter, and the withholding of diagnostic information from the patient - have not been well-describ...
