COMUNICACIÓN Y SALUD
Es evidente que la comunicación entre todos los agentes implicados en la gestión de la salud
es un área de trabajo e investigación imprescindible en la actualidad. En este curso se
pretende presentar los aspectos técnicos y sociales de la comunicación en el ámbito
sanitario, analizar el papel de la comunicación en la prevención de la enfermedad y en el
bienestar de la población y estudiar la influencia de diversidades socioculturales, educativas,
políticas o económicas en el diseño, aplicación y resultados de los programas de salud.
The human genome sequence forms the cornerstone of contemporary human genetics. This
course will cover hereditary and molecular genetics as it applies to humans, with a strong
genomics and human disease perspective. It will cover transmission genetics, the Human
Genome Project, Identification of human disease genes, modern technologies for genome
analysis, personal genomics and cancer genomics. We will also discuss current topics such as
MOLECULAR AND CELLULAR BASES OF THE DISEASE
The advances in Cellular and Molecular Biology has enriched our understanding of
physiological mechanisms as well as the bases of pathophysiology processes, which has
allowed to improve diagnostic tools and therapeutic approaches. The steps forwards in these
fields have also generated a high degree of confusion regarding terminology and concepts. In
this course we will present to the students 15 clinical cases that will permit them to investigate
both individually and collaboratively through electronic databases many new concepts.
Collected information will be shared and used to interpret proposed question on cellular and
molecular mechanisms of the diseases involved in order to reach under the teacher
supervision a final overview of the whole situation. In addition, three practical problems that will developed in six sessions will help the students to get in contact with the real activity in
the clinical laboratory.
Bioethics is the application of ethics to the field of medicine and healthcare. Bioethics is a
multidisciplinary discipline, which blends philosophy, theology, history, and law with
medicine, nursing, health policy, and medical humanities. It is a relatively recent discipline,
at least as it is currently known.
In this course, we will discuss topics such as What is bioethics?, Ethical Approaches, The
beginning of life, Bodies and bodily parts, Information problems, The end of life, Global
health-care issues, Research ethics, Health systems and institutions and Teaching and
practice of bioethics.
