ROMERO VAZQUEZ, Argeo  and  LOPEZ JIMENEZ, Francisco. Development of an Educational Software for the Orientation-Learning of Cervical Cancer Detection. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2020, vol.11, n.21, e017.  Epub Mar 09, 2021. ISSN 2007-7467.

The objective of this work was to build and evaluate the usefulness of an educational software for the orientation-learning of cervical cancer detection that considers psycho-pedagogical aspects. Methodologically, with the help of programming and teaching specialists and with a cognitive-constructivist approach, several evolutionary prototypes were developed with successive refinements, including in the software information about cervical cancer, the taking of the cervical cytology sample and the taking of sample for detection of human papillomavirus by capture of hybrids. For contextualized evaluation, the software developed was presented to medical students, with a control group (A) and two experimental groups (B and C). By comparing the results before and after the intervention, the efficacy of the product in terms of achieving significant learning was demonstrated.

Keywords : cervical cancer; cervix; hybrids; educational software; human papillomavirus.
