CONSIDERATIONS OF THREE AGENTS INVOLVED IN THE TRAINING PROCESSES IN THE HEALTH SCIENCES: STUDENTS, TEACHERS AND PATIENTS BEFORE A TEACHING INNOVATION PROJECT IN THE FACULTY OF PHYSIOTHERAPY

The training of the future specialist in Physiotherapy requires constant updating, above all, in alternative proposals aimed at guaranteeing the best results with a population increasingly in need of novelties in the face of such rapid changes today. Given this, from the innovation group of the Faculty of Physiotherapy of the University of Valencia, which has been developing a multitude of Teaching Innovation Projects from the Music Therapy classroom, they wanted to offer the possibility of proposing alternative resources from and with music as main tool of positive transformation to work with older people (UV-SFPIE_RMD18-839813). For this, a group of this group was counted on, which was supervised in the classroom by the teachers specialized in Physiotherapy, as well as in Music Therapy and Body Expression, who had to review the suitability of the proposals made by the students for said group old people. At the end of each group proposal the students, teachers and patients wrote down their impressions in this regard, attending to a series of questions posed in a questionnaire; in addition, the students themselves evaluated the actions of their classmates, to guarantee the greatest possible amount of information about the proposed proposals. This made it possible to guarantee that not only a change in the professional performance of the specialist in Physiotherapy was being made possible, but that their training was being taken care of from the undergraduate studies. The need to attend to the training process of the specialist, to promote changes to improve the quality of their training and, therefore, of their future professional performance, is a field that is not usually investigated too much, although it is necessary to discover and tackle possible deficiencies that may have a negative impact on the specialist in Physiotherapy.
