As a team and respecting the autonomy of this subject we will design a unique strategy, a project that details the actions we intend to develop to achieve the changes we want. Unemployment domestic violence school dropout social isolation liver damage complicated alcohol consumption 22 Course in social and Community Health in this project, we will always add team tasks to community strategies.
The community health team will mobilize all the resources of the service network to respond to the need posed by the problems built. From all that we say it follows, then, that the most important tool in addressing complex problems is the recreation of the links between us and ourselves. Activity in this unit we propose to start thinking about health problems from other perspectives: we talk about list of problems, joint prioritization of problems, setting goals for change, links with the community, family medical history, agreeing interventions with the community, joint actions and many other new concepts.
What particularities did you find?
We now propose an exercise to start putting them into practice: 1-Make A list of the most common health problems in the community. I chose a family from which you visit and made a list of the family’s health problems. What particularities did you find? what do members of that family get sick of? who gets sick and who doesn’t? are these problems common to other families? how’s the team’s connection to that family?
Is it necessary, do you plan a meeting with that family to jointly analyze the health needs of some or all of its members and agree with them possible work strategies? As a team, what would you propose? how would you propose this meeting? what questions Would you address?
Some complex health problems take time to exchange different views and strategies proposed to work with the community and families. Always remember that when we talk about the problems of a person or family, we only use their personal data (name, address and others) inside the computer, always safeguarding the secrecy and privacy of people.
We suggest, then, that to do this activity, just quote the initials or a assumed name, which is not the real one, with which you can identify who / are we talking about.
By way of closing … Redefine the links between health workers to each other, between themselves and the community, between their members and those who suffer; generate links capable of operating on problems, increasing autonomy and transmitting affection. Bonds that create love for life, which is essentially a collective achievement.
Health teams often complain about patients
Transforming our bonds makes us subjects of change, able to stretch the limit of what is possible. Isn’t that health? Health teams often complain about patients ‘ lack of adherence to treatments. A subject-based approach like the one we propose, leads to our practices, our actions, those that stick to or adhere to the health problems of the communities and the subjects we work with. To do this, we must first listen, and then worry about making changes, while complying with protocols and indications.
- The everyday questions will no longer be what do I owe?, but what can / can we do to overcome these problems? how much have we contributed to us and US and the others increasing care about our lives?
- Unit # 2 new insights into old problems some complex health problems introduction in this unit we are going to raise some health problems known to you, about which you must surely have a lot of information and a lot to tell about your field experience.
Why do we choose these themes if they are so familiar? There are health problems that we see very often because they are prevalent in our environment, however, we still do not find an effective way to solve them. That’s why we chose them to continue working. Our gaze towards them may be limited to just a few aspects and we are not yet able to work with all their determinants.
Promote knowledge about these health problems
In the development of this unit we will mention little about the biological causes of these health problems, rather we will focus on working on another way of looking at them, so that we can find different approaches, more comprehensive and perhaps with a better end result. In this sense, this material tries to broaden the view so that we can see the complexity of the problems and in this way collectively find other ways to solve them. At the end of this unit you will be able to: promote knowledge about these health problems in the community.
Develop a better community intervention on Chagas disease and Tuberculosis, based on greater knowledge and community involvement about its control. Understand the impact of social determinants of Health on these issues. Know and analyze experiences on the adequacy of Health Services actions in different communities and cultural realities. Forgotten diseases. Diario Tiempo Argentino. 12.02.12. 1. Chagas disease activity we propose that you and your fellow students reflect on: a. What do they know about Chagas disease?
These diseases mainly affect the less-resourced
What are the regions where Chagas disease is endemic? Do you know what strategies and actions are implemented in your communities to control this disease? On January 30, 2012, the World Health Organization, together with civil society organizations, governments of different countries (including ours) and the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, signed an international agreement for the eradication of so-called”forgotten diseases”. These diseases mainly affect the less-resourced sectors and have been sidelined by industry because of their low commercial value.
Those affected by these pathologies depend almost exclusively on the attention of the state. It is not that there is a lack of research or resources, what is lacking is articulation between all the sectors involved.1 Chagas disease still represents one of the most important diseases affecting the population in Latin America. Despite the resources invested in research activities and control campaigns, most homes in endemic areas are infested, resulting in the high degree of transmission present in human populations.
