Concentration Area

Health practices are part of a complex framework of health needs and service delivery. The current epidemiological profile of the Brazilian population shows a concomitance of acute illnesses and chronic conditions, conditioned by the demographic transition and the transformations of developing societies.

Addressing this multifaceted set of health service needs and demands requires a new profile of health professionals focused on transformation and innovation, aiming at the production of qualified and safe solutions.

The dialogue between the needs of a reorganization of the health system and the training of professionals, in the light of comprehensive care, guided the choice of the area of concentration in Clinical Management as the focus of knowledge production and training of professionals by the GPCM.

Clinical Management focuses on improving effectiveness, efficiency, and efficacy, making professionals and services accountable, establishing standards and quality systems, and articulating and regulating health actions and services.
