Evaluation of the Family Health Support Centers focusing on the integration to supported teams
AbstractOBJECTIVE: To evaluate the Brazilian Family Health Support Centers focusing on the integration to supported teams. METHODS: This is an evaluation study in which we carried out a documentary analysis and modeling of the intervention focusing on the work integrated to the supported teams, which has allowed us to describe dimensions, objectives, and expected results. We defined the outcome indicators and their respective measures and sources of information. We used consensus techniques with key informants to validate the models and the matrix of indicators. RESULTS: The evaluation study was appropriate, and it allowed a better definition and knowledge about the intervention. CONCLUSIONS: There is coherence between the objectives of the Family Health Support Centers and their structure, although there are difficulties to operationalize them. We recommend a formative evaluation of the Family Health Support Centers focusing on the work integrated to the supported teams, seeking to strengthen them to achieve the expected results.
