Resumen en español En este trabajo describimos las reflexiones y conclusiones extraídas del análisis de un brote de gastroenteritis en un centro escolar, que ocasionó una crisis de salud pública. El análisis realizado tuvo como base la metodología de las matrices de "debilidades, amenazas, fortalezas y oportunidades" (DAFO). Se describe la epidemiología de los sucesos y decisiones tomadas, basadas en aspectos operativos durante una situación de crisis. Incluye la experiencia del equ (mas) ipo responsable del brote, las relaciones con otras entidades y la gestión de la información. Las dificultades encontradas por el equipo coordinador consistieron en el retraso de la declaración, la falta de formación de algunas entidades implicadas y el mal uso de los circuitos establecidos. Es necesario un entrenamiento específico en los actuales protocolos de manejo de crisis y fomentar la mejora continua de los circuitos de coordinación mediante la autoevaluación y actualización de conocimientos y recursos. Resumen en inglés We present our reflections on the management of an acute gastroenteritis outbreak in a public school, which caused a public health crisis, and the conclusions drawn from this experience. The methodology of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) analysis was used. This article describes the epidemiology of the incident and the policy decisions made, but focuses on operational aspects of outbreak management. The experience of the outbreak control team, lia (mas) ison with other organizations, and data management are discussed. The difficulties encountered by the outbreak team related to delay in declaring in the outbreak, lack of training in some of the entities involved, and incorrect use of the surveillance circuits. Current protocols and specific action plans for the management of outbreaks should be improved through self-evaluation and updating of resources and knowledge.

Resumen en español El estudio de los efectos de la pobreza sobre el desempeño cognitivo durante las primeras fases del desarrollo, ha sido efectuado predominantemente en base a la definición de pobreza según el ingreso y el uso de paradigmas de inteligencia basados en la hipótesis de un factor general de funcionamiento cognitivo. En el presente trabajo se utilizó el concepto de Necesidades Básicas Insatisfechas (NBI) como criterio de pobreza y se aplicó un paradigma cognitivo de func (mas) ionamiento ejecutivo proveniente de la Neurociencia. El mismo plantea el análisis de componentes de comportamientos inteligentes orientados hacia objetivos y asociados a la activación de circuitos cerebrales que involucran centralmente a la región prefrontal. Se comparó el desempeño ejecutivo de 247 niños escolarizados de 3 a 5 años de edad, provenientes de hogares pobres (NBI) y no pobres o con Necesidades Básicas Satisfechas (NBS), y de jardines de infantes del Distrito Escolar 4 de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires (Boca-Barracas) y de distritos escolares de Vicente López y San Isidro del Gran Buenos Aires (Argentina). Se administró una batería de pruebas que evalúan componentes de flexibilidad cognitiva, logro de objetivos y control atencional. Los resultados obtenidos muestran perfiles de desempeño diferentes entre ambos grupos. El perfil de desempeño menos eficiente en términos de las variables estudiadas se observó en el grupo de niños proveniente de hogares pobres. Estos resultados constituyen un aporte significativo de un paradigma neurocientífico para la implementación de estrategias de intervención orientadas a estimular el funcionamiento cognitivo de tipo ejecutivo de niños de edad preescolar. Resumen en inglés In general, the effects of poverty on early cognitive performance have been studied using a definition of poverty based on terms of income, and within the context of paradigms of cognitive evaluation based on the hypothesis of a general intelligence factor. Conversely, in the present report the concept of Unsatisfied Basic Needs (UBN) was used as poverty criterion, and a cognitive paradigm of executive functions based on neurobiological concepts was applied. This paradigm (mas) outlines the existence of discrete and interactive components of cognitive functioning guided toward objectives, and associated to the activation of cerebral circuits that involves the prefrontal cortex. The performance of 247 preschoolers (3 to 5 year-olds) from schools in District 4 of the City of Buenos Aires (Boca-Barracas), and in the districts of Vicente López and San Isidro of Gran Buenos Aires, was compared. Sample groups included children from poor (UBN) and non-poor homes or with Satisfied Basic Needs (SBN). They were studied with a battery of executive tests [A-not-B, Spatial Reversal, and Color Reversal (Espy, Kaufmann, McDiarmid, & Glisky, 1999); Three and Four Colors (Balamore & Wozniak, 1984); Strooplike Day-Night (Gerstadt, Hong, & Diamond (1994); and Tower of London (Shallice, 1982)] to evaluate the components of cognitive flexibility (working memory, attentional shifting, self-monitoring, and conceptual transfer), goal-setting (initiating, planning, problem solving, and strategic behavior), and attentional control. A selection procedure was applied to all cases, taking into account: prematurity, weight at the time of birth, medical record of neurological and developmental disorders, actual weight, height and their relationship at the time of testing, intellectual quotient of execution (WPPSI), and official certification of child abuse in their homes. Poor homes were identified by applying a scale of socio-economic level (NES) based on conceptual and operational definitions used by the Instituto Nacional de Estadísticas y Censos (INDEC) of Argentina. Bivariate and multivariate tests were applied to analyze the effects of the independent variables (socio-economic group, age, sex and difficulty level) on the dependents and their interactions. Correlations and simple regressions were applied to analyze the associations between cognitive performance and socio-economic level. In A-not-B, Spatial Reversal and Color Reversal tests the UBN group made less previous correct trials before reaching the efficiency criteria (difficulty to find the hidden rule) and consecutive correct trials (difficulty to maintain outstanding information). They also made more reiterative errors (failure in the control of interferences). In the Three and Four Colors Test, the UBN group had lower scores in all the analyzed variables. Children within this group also needed more demonstrations and verbalizations from the experimenters. In the Tower of London Test, UBN children showed an increased delay to begin and to organize the task, and were less efficient in achieving the objectives. Planning time decreased when cognitive demands were increased. The SBN group showed an inverse profile. Both groups had similar performance in the Stroop-like Day-Night Test. When performance variations were analyzed in terms of age and difficulty level, the tendencies were similar to those reported in previous studies. Gender differences were registered in A-not-B and Tower of London tests, with girls showing a better perform-ance. Finally, there were positive associations between performance success and socio-economic total score, and negative associations between errors and socio-economic total score. Present results confirm that poverty has a negative impact on cognitive performance in terms of the executive function paradigm used. The advantages of a cognitive paradigm based on a neurobiological theoretical framework in the context of social and school intervention programs for children from a socially risky population, are also discussed.
