Rev Med Inst Mex Seguro Soc. 2017 Jul-Aug;55(4):412-415.
[Article in Spanish]


In this editorial we initially expose the agreements that have set the mechanisms to guarantee safety and fair treatment to human subjects in research. Later on, we offer alternatives from translational and multidisciplinary research to promote education and humanities research in health.

En el presente editorial se exponen, en un primer momento, los acuerdos que han establecido los mecanismos para garantizar la seguridad y el trato digno a las personas sujetas a investigación. Más tarde, se ofrecen alternativas, desde la investigación traslacional y la multidisciplina, para promover en el ámbito de la salud la investigación en educación y las humanidades.

Keywords: Ethics; Health education; Humanities; Translational medical research.
