Como uma continuidade da atividade promocional do ano passado 2012, o Serviço de Saúde Pública do Centro de Saúde de Mértola, mostra o seu interesse nesta área intervencionista por parte da Dra. Adriana Rubiño Núñez, objetivando sempre a intervenção comunitária nos problemas de saúde prioritários, achando muito pertinente aderir à campanha "Porque Eu me Importo" e assinalando às Comemorações do Dia Mundial do Acidente Vascular Cerebral como uma oportunidade de extraordinária valia para chamar atenção da população em geral e em risco. Este ano e atempadamente a intervenção baseada na Comemoração do "World Stroke Day 2013"irá focar a exposição de informação à população do Concelho de Mértola do género: recomendações, riscos, prevenção, controlo e cuidados com a adesão à Campanha "1 em cada 6 Pessoas no Mundo terão um AVC em suas Vidas", também irá ser distribuido o documento WSO- Checklist Pós-AVC, Melhorando a Qualidade de Vida Pós-AVC, com o intuito de introduzir um conceito de triagem na avaliação do estado dos doentes e a sua adequada referenciação de cuidados especificos a receber. Espera-se desde já que a Global Stroke Bill of Rights seja uma realidade na sociedade e nos doentes.

Portuguese Stroke Organization

10/29/2013

The Portuguese Society of Stroke (Sociedade Portuguesa de AVC - SPAVC) is a non-profit organization devoted to improve the knowledge in the field of cerebrovascular diseases and to develop initiatives towards a better management of the Portuguese population at risk of stroke or having already suffered a stroke. The SPAVC includes health care professionals that act in the whole chain of care of these patients, and also at a research level. In October 29, 2013, the SPAVC has developed, as usual, several initiatives to commemorate the World Stroke Day. The main target was the general population, and the main aim was to spread the message that, although stroke might be a catastrophic disease, it can be prevented and treated. This action was performed during the whole day in a big public square named “Cordoaria”, in the city of Porto, Portugal, with the collaboration of health care professionals from the nearby Hospital de Santo António. The Army, the Faculty of Nutrition, the Portuguese Dental Association, and the physical exercise organization “Let’s Go!” were also collaborators. Information was released about what is stroke, which are its risk factors and how to detect and manage them to prevent stroke, which alarm signs should be known to recognize stroke and how to call the pre-hospital emergency service. Some specific actions were included, as: - Measurement of arterial blood pressure - Measurement of glucose and cholesterol in blood samples - Electrocardiography - Body mass index evaluation and nutritional advise - Dental care evaluation and oral health advise - Physical exercise session with the “Let’s Go!” Photos of the day can be seen at http://www.spavc.org/actividades/galeria-de-imagens-2 Members of SPAVC also organized similar initiatives addressed to the patients and other participants at some other hospitals, as São João Hospital Center and Hospital Cuf Porto. Additionally, several members of SPAVC participated in interviews about stroke in different television channels.
