ABSTRACT
Objectives: To determine the opinion and knowledge about the Spanish Guideline on the management of Asthma 2009 (GEMA-2009) of the residents of 3rd and 4th year of Pediatrics and the impact of the training periods in for Asthma Management 2009 (GEMA-2009) of the residents of 3 rd and 4th year of Pediatrics training and the impact of the formative periods in Allergology (Ap) and pediatric Neumology (Np) in this acquisition. Material and method: A questionnaire with 28 questions was done; 10 about their training and GEMA-2009's opinion and 18 to evaluate their knowledge about the Spanish Guidelines. The questionnaire was sent to all Pediatrics 'training hospitals. Residents completed it individually, anonymously, voluntary, without previous notice or bibliographical consultation. Results: 35.6% of the hospitals forwarded completed questionnaires. 50.5% of the residents who answered were from third year and 21.5% from fourth. 30% answered that they knew all about this Guidelines and another 30% answered that they knew only the pediatric part. 71.4% thought that its recommendations are totally useful; although 16.7% affirmed not using it usually and 52.4% use it occasionally. The mean punctuation was of 5.42/10. Residents who had been trained in Np or in both Ap and Np had similar average punctuations (5.8 and 5.9 respectively), being significantly better that those only trained in Ap or neither Ap nor Np (4.44 and 4.6 respectively). Conclusions: The diffusion of the GEMA-2009 among the residents of the last years of Pediatrics training seems to be acceptable although the knowledge about this Guideline is not excessively good, being asthma and rhinitis's treatments the most deficient areas. Np training improves GEMA-2009's knowledge.
