The State Department of Health (SES-MT), in partnership with the Department of Health, is promoting on Wednesday and Thursday (13 and 14.04) the first rehabilitation workshop of the Network for the Care of Persons with Disabilities in the State of Mato Grosso. The event takes place at the Holiday Inn, in Cuiabá.
This action, implemented through Centro Especializado em Reabilitação Dom Aquino Correa (Cridac), allows the exchange of successful experiences achieved in other Brazilian regions, making it possible to implement initiatives already implemented in other states in the Mato Grosso network.
Professionals working in regional health offices, decentralized units, representatives of municipal, state and federal administrations of the Unified Health System (SUS), as well as coordinators and professionals of rehabilitation services of the Network of Persons with Disabilities (PCD) are involved. In training.
More than 100 specialists receive the qualification in person and the workshop is moved almost as well, with a Libras interpreter and remote participation of more than 180 people.
For the General Coordinator of the Health of Persons with Disabilities at the Ministry of Health, Angelo Roberto Gonçalves, the workshop will bear a lot of fruit. Mato Grosso is the sixth Brazilian state to receive the qualification.
“It is important to qualify the network for the care of persons with disabilities. He explained that the workshop aims to implement the interventional support of the Ministry of Health with the states and within the municipalities to conduct an amendment, a panel discussion with the entire health care network.
Director of the Specialized Rehabilitation Center Dom Aquino Correa (Cridac), Luis Antonio Ferreira, notes that the workshop is possible thanks to the SES stimulus, which aims to expand this network of care for people with disabilities and allow easy access to care through specialized rehabilitation centers.
The Secretariat is working to expand the decentralization of the care network. That is, the internal citizen should be able to carry out rehabilitation in his municipality. We have increased incentives for municipalities and resources will be paid to purchase rehabilitation equipment in the municipality itself. The Ministry of Health noticed our movement and brought the workshop to further improve this work,” the director celebrates.
Currently, of the 141 municipalities in Mato Grosso, 132 already have a rehabilitation unit. The state has seven specialized rehabilitation centers, two in Cuiabá (one run by the state and one run by the capital) and one in Rondonópolis, Barra de Gracas, Sinop, Caceres and Varzia Grande, run by the municipalities.
The President of the Regional Council for Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy for the 9th District of Mato Grosso (Crivito-9), Ingrid Farina da Silva, will also participate in this event. The council works by monitoring activity in the country from the user’s point of view and by monitoring the work of rehabilitation centers.
“It is important for us to assess the direct impact of this workshop for Mato Grosso, as it will lead to positive results. This initiative is definitely fantastic. Our specialists will be trained to serve high-end users. The rehabilitation network in Mato Grosso lacks this training, as it is one of the most fragility,” he assessed.
Physiotherapist and Cridac coordinator, Luciana Campelo, still considers that people with disabilities find it difficult to access the rights offered. “Sometimes the information is missing, so it is very important for us to understand how it works in other Brazilian regions so that, based on successful cases, it is possible to implement this in the Mato Grosso network.”
