Porto Alegre’s situation analysis report, conducted by a group of key city stakeholders, identified delays between the suspicion and diagnosis of cancer and a lack of awareness of cancer among health professionals (physicians, nurses and community health workers) at the primary health care (PHC) level.
To improve early diagnosis in primary care, enhance access to specialised treatment and strengthen the health system in Porto Alegre.
The project team will develop a new model for rapid diagnostic pathways for cancer care, to be piloted by the Conceição Hospital Group. This will facilitate the identification of a larger number of patients with risk factors and/or symptoms by PHC units.
Adequate training of HRH on technology usage is the obvious piece of the capacity development puzzle for digital transformation. However, it is sometimes overlooked, assuming that all professionals involved in the project start at a similar level of digital literacy and habit to navigate tools in their daily workflows.
