Impact study of information strategies to modify knowledge, attitudes and practices in chronic diseases in Bogota.

Project: Research Project

Project Details


This project focuses on the collection of relevant information leading to the establishment of imaginaries, knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAPs) related to the management of chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs), especially cardiovascular diseases. It is also necessary to inquire about the maintenance of unhealthy styles and how these are perceived in relation to the possibility of developing some type of disease that can be classified as NCT to implement strategies and plans for the population to appropriate the need for co-participation in the prevention of disease and maintenance of healthy lifestyles. The target population will focus on people involved in health care, patients and caregivers, and population likely to benefit from the product of this work. Given the importance of exploring participants' CAPs and understanding the impact of interventions to promote the transfer and appropriation of health scientific knowledge products (PCOS), three qualitative studies of exploratory, phenomenological and ethnographic type will be carried out, using tools such as focus groups, documentary analysis and ethnographic observation.
