This Wednesday (16), all the doctors in charge of the primary health care service (PHC) of Umuarama will participate in the training “Notification of dengue and clinical management of arboviruses”, coordinated by the 12th Regional Health.
The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and in this way prevents professionals from providing care to the population in basic health units throughout the morning.
According to nurse Jaqueline de Bortoli Shiribayashi, primary health care coordinator, urgent cases will be duly referred to municipal emergency care and elective care will again be provided in basic health units from 1:30 p.m.
“Reminding that all patients and users will be screened and, if necessary, will be referred for care,” he said.
Dengue is the most important arbovirus (disease transmitted by arthropods, such as the Aedes aegipty mosquito) that affects humans.
“This training focuses on the clinical management of dengue, that is, ensuring safe and quality care while preventing the continued transmission of the virus. As we are experiencing a moment of attention regarding dengue fever in our city, this event is essential for all healthcare professionals”, observes Jaqueline, adding that the service returns to normal from 1.30 p.m.
