DSEI MRSA health professionals receive training in Surveillance of Deaths and Live Births
In the last week of August, the training of health professionals from the Special Indigenous Sanitary District Médio Rio Solimões e Afluentes on the theme "Surveillance of deaths and live births" was held.
The closing took place this Friday, August 27, in the auditorium of the Center for Higher Studies of Tefé (CEST/UEA). The training occurred with the support of the Municipal Health Secretary (SEMSA) of Tefé-AM.
The training aimed to prepare health professionals for the monitoring and improvement of surveillance techniques of deaths and live births in indigenous ethnicities and basic attention of the municipality.
About 30 professionals who work in different health units such as the Indigenous Health Support House (CASAI-Tefé), nursing technicians, nurses and doctors, and also in the Basic Health Units (UBS) of the city participated in the training and received certificates at the end of the event.
"Health education actions have been prioritized in the scope of the MRSA DSEI, because we understand that they are a very important tool for the improvement of our services. From this training it will be possible to obtain better indicators of case control, identifying the determining and conditioning factors that may have led to death and planning intervention strategies," said Mr. Agno Rebolças, DSEI MRSA Coordinator.
The training was conducted by professionals Ana Carla Vargues and Jones Carvalho, both members of the Center for Health Situation Analysis of the DSEI MRSA.
During the program, the tutors presented indicators, techniques to improve and enhance care, theoretical concepts of health surveillance, information systems and flows, the role of health professionals in preventing deaths, and case studies of indigenous deaths and births. In addition, the team carried out dynamics for the exchange of knowledge and experiences in the different areas of primary care.
