LIMA, Maria Luiza Carvalho de et al. Diagnostic analysis of the rehabilitation services that attend victims of accidents and violence in Recife. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2009, vol.14, n.5, pp. 1817-1824. ISSN 1413-8123. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-81232009000500023.
This paper aims to analyze the rehabilitation services in Recife, Brazil, confronting it with what the National Policy for Decreasing Morbimortality from Accidents and Violence (NPDMAV) professes. Six units of rehabilitation services were analyzed; five were from municipal administration and the other was an ONG on an agreement with SUS. A partial structured interview was conducted with the person in charge for the Attention to the Disable Person's Health aiming to map the network. Also a questionnaire was applied to the managers of the six services aiming to identify the unit and its activities, structure and organization. The Rehabilitation Assistance network in Recife do not meet the NPDMAV guidelines as it presents: decreased number of services/programs; lack of a multidisciplinary team; lack of technological support; deficient joint intra and inter sectors; little interaction between the victim and his family to reinsertion into family and social life; and still incipient prevention and promotion actions. In conclusion, there is an effort to adequate the actions to this population group; however there are relevant covering deficits of people, equipments, information and articulation registers among the various levels of this health network.
