Environment and Health

Project: Research Project

Project Details


The CRESCO seedbed was created in 2015. In 2018, the line of work on Health Research Methodology was created, the aim of which is to train members in research skills. The creation of this line of work has generated new learning and training spaces in line with the institutional model of learning to learn, where students are the protagonists and managers of their own knowledge. The pedagogical model used is the Flipped Classroom (FC), where students generate research questions in public health or clinical research from their experiences and experiences in community practices, clinics and rotations, and then, with the experience of teachers, facilitates and enhances other processes of knowledge generation.

During 2018, quality products were generated and presented at events; one local and one Latin American, achieving the collaboration of the thematic expert in palliative care of the Cochrane Collaboration, demonstrating the importance of the presence in these spaces. In the last year the number of students participating in the seedbed has increased, achieving the acceptance and presentation of works in two national academic events with four works and an additional work in the Cochrane Colloquium 2019, an event of global relevance.

With this background of successful proposals and outstanding participation of the members, it is imperative to achieve the publication of the results in academic journals, for which it will be necessary to have resources to finance the production of scientific articles, editing and publication.

Currently, the topics of work on health research methodology are Health outcomes associated with child labour and Adverse neonatal outcomes associated with maternal exposure to pollutants.
