Promoting permanent health education through teaching-service-community and management integration, aiming at qualifying care and management and contributing to the training of new professionals for the SUS. This was the objective of the Education through Work Program - PET Gestão e Assistência, which ended last Monday (31), an initiative of Escola Bahiana de Medicina e Saúde Pública carried out by the Dean of Extension, in partnership with the State and Municipal Health Secretariats and the Ministry of Health. The program was introduced to new graduate students from all courses at the Bahiana, on the first day of class of the semester 2023.2. Lasting one year, PET Gestão e Assistência worked with the participation of students and professors from Bahiana and civil servants, in public health units at the municipal and state levels.
In addition to the management and assistance practices, the program enabled the delivery of a product that provided improvements to each participating unit. Hospital Municipal de Salvador received a care protocol for cases of stroke and sepsis; A flowchart of care for people with sickle cell disease at the UPAS was delivered to the Health Care Board, and a pedagogical protocol of innovations in Permanent Health Education was sent to the General Board of Personnel Management of the Municipal Management Secretariat. At the state level, an Education and Health action and an auriculotherapy course for the care of patients at CICAN and an Education and Health action for pregnant women with sickle cell anemia at Maternidade José Maria de Magalhães Neto were developed as products.
“The program developed me a lot as a nurse, because I had direct contact with the hospital. I believe it will contribute a lot in the future”, reported the student of the 5th semester of the Nursing course Gabriela Barbosa. According to the coordinator of the Nursing course Rosicleide Araújo Freitas Machado, the program aims to provide students with training for the world of work. “The PET brings students closer to the SUS, so that they develop attitudes and skills, both relational and scientific knowledge. They had many gains from an interprofessional practice, because they worked among peers and with their professors and the tutors of the partner units who were of different categories”. The PET coordinator, Prof. Lavínia Boaventura scored gains throughout the program. “It is a great challenge to make students realize the grandeur of the SUS and its importance for the health of Brazilian populations. Another gain was the awareness of teamwork, a job for the SUS, thinking about meeting the reality of these populations”.
