  • Sistematización teórica acerca de la formación del profesional como
           proceso de apropiación de la cultura

    • Abstract: RESUMEN El artículo destaca la formación del profesional como un proceso de apropiación de la cultura que precisa del accionar planificado del profesor con un sentido orientador y de la formación lingüística para hacerlo, desde su conciencia lingüística para usar con un criterio exhaustivo la lengua idioma en la enculturación inherente al proceso de formación. Se hace un recorrido, por lo que se considera dimensiones para la comprensión global del sistema con el cual se construye - deconstruye la apropiación de la cultura: el lenguaje y sus unidades estructurales, con énfasis en el sistema léxico y sus principales modelos; de ahí que le es inherente al presente texto el objetivo de exponer los resultados de una sistematización teórica sobre el tratamiento de estos contenidos en la educación superior. Los resultados que se exhiben derivan de una línea de investigación que la autora desarrolla hace treinta y cinco años, como docente e investigadora en la educación superior, en la que se inscribe además, su tesis doctoral.ABSTRACT The article highlights the training of the professional as a process of appropriation of the culture that requires the planned action of the teacher with a guiding sense and the linguistic training to do so, from his linguistic awareness to use the language in enculturation with an exhaustive criterion. inherent in the training process. A tour is made, for what is considered dimensions for the global understanding of the system with which the appropriation of culture is built - deconstructed: language and its structural units, with emphasis on the lexical system and its main models; hence, the objective of presenting the results of a theoretical systematization on the treatment of these contents in higher education is inherent to this text. The results that are exhibited derive from a line of research that the author has developed thirty-five years ago, as a teacher and researcher in higher education, in which her doctoral thesis is also inscribed.
  • Prácticas y saberes de excombatientes de las FARC-EP sobre el tratamiento
           de la leishmaniasis cutánea

    • Abstract: RESUMEN Introducción: La Leishmaniasis es una enfermedad infecciosa parasitaria zoonótica que afecta la piel, las mucosas y las vísceras. Es endémica en 98 países y hay más de 350 millones de personas en riesgo de transmisión. En Colombia, los campamentos de las antiguas Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia, se ubicaban en zonas selváticas donde la enfermedad está presente. El objetivo del presente trabajo está dirigido a describir las prácticas y saberes de los excombatientes de las FARC-EP sobre la Leishmaniasis cutánea y su manejo en escenarios de combate al convivir con esta enfermedad. Métodos: El estudio es cualitativo/exploratorio, donde se abordaron los conocimientos sobre la enfermedad y su forma de transmisión, como también aquellas prácticas relacionadas con el uso de medicamentos para su tratamiento. Resultados: En el análisis de las entrevistas se encontró que los excombatientes conocen el ciclo de la enfermedad desde sus vivencias y por transmisión oral, como también de prácticas curativas propias adaptadas al contexto del conflicto armado, esta experiencia los llevó a desarrollar estrategias de gestión del conocimiento basado en la evidencia. Discusión: Las entrevistas dan cuenta del conocimiento empírico y clínico de los excombatientes sobre el ciclo de la enfermedad; no existe un registro documental, ni manuales de procedimientos realizados en la selva por las FARC-EP sobre tratamiento de enfermedades; los miembros de las FARC-EP a desarrollar estrategias de gestión del conocimiento basados en la evidencia; el contexto de conflicto afectó de manera importante el tiempo y los recursos técnicos para manejar la Leishmaniasis, esto posibilitó las respuestas alternativas a la enfermedad documentadas en este trabajo.ABSTRACT Introduction: Leishmaniasis is a zoonotic parasitic infectious disease that affects the skin, mucous membranes and viscera. It is endemic in 98 countries and there are more than 350 million people at risk of transmission. In Colombia, the camps of the former Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia were located in jungle areas where the disease is present. The objective of this work is aimed at describing the practices and knowledge of ex-combatants of the FARC-EP about cutaneous Leishmaniasis and its management in combat scenarios when living with this disease. Methods: The study is qualitative/exploratory, where knowledge about the disease and its form of transmission were addressed, as well as those practices related to the use of medications for its treatment. Results: In the analysis of the interviews it was found that the ex-combatants know the cycle of the disease from their experiences and by oral transmission, as well as their own healing practices adapted to the context of the armed conflict, this experience led them to develop knowledge management strategies based on the evidence. Discussion: The interviews give an account of the empirical and clinical knowledge of the ex-combatants about the cycle of the disease; There is no documentary record, nor manuals of procedures carried out in the jungle by the FARC-EP on the treatment of diseases; the members of the FARC-EP to develop evidence-based knowledge management strategies; the context of conflict significantly affected the time and technical resources to manage Leishmaniasis, this made possible the alternative responses to the disease documented in this work.
