Lais Santos Silva Sônia Natal About the authors

Abstract

The multiprofessional residencies in health meet the needs of the Brazilian Unified Health System and of the Ongoing Education Policy, and are a tool for the training and insertion of professionals in the health services. Due to the fact that it is a new intervention, we proposed an analysis to assess the degree of implementation of the program in two health care services connected to the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, with a documentary analysis and bibliographic reviews, with the development of the logical and theoretical models, and of the analysis and assessment matrix. The data collection, which took place between May and August 2018, was made through interviews with 16 actors from the program. The results of the assessment show favorable aspects regarding the organization of the political pedagogical process, the structuring of the follow-up agencies provided in the legislation, and the development of the selection process. As limiting aspects, we can mention the absence of financial resources to implement the activities of the residency students, low insertion of the tutors and preceptors in the learning process, few training initiatives for the actors, as well as absence of an evaluation by the National Committee of Multiprofessional Residencies in Health.
