Evaluation of the shares of Speech Therapy in the NASF in RecifeEvaluation of the shares of Speech Therapy in the NASF in Recife. Audiol., Commun. Res. [online]. 2014, vol.19, n.1, pp.52-60.

: This study aimed to evaluate the actions of Speech in Support Centers for Family Health in Recife (PE).


: We carried out an evaluation study with a normative approach, considering aspects related to structure and process. For the evaluation model, we compiled logical speech therapy at the Center for Support from the analysis of the official documents that govern the operation in Support Centers for Family Health. We then constructed a matrix evaluation and prepared the instrument for data collection. Speech therapists were interviewed by ten members of the county teams studied by the Support Center for Family Health (NASF). To determine the degree of appropriateness of actions in audiology, the NASF used a scoring system that allowed them to classify actions into adequate (75-100%), partially adequate (50-74.99%), nephropathy (25-49.99%), and critical (<24.99%).


: The logical model resulting from this study pointed to a speech therapy based on the Support Matrix and activities to support Care and Management. Regarding the valuation of the shares, the structure and process dimensions were classified as incipient and appropriate, respectively. Considering the two dimensions evaluated, shares of Speech in the NASF could be considered adequate.


: Speech has played a consistent role in the city of Recife, although its performance is grounded in the work process, highlighting the need to intervene in matters related to the structure in order to enhance the development of actions carried out in this context.
