Geriatric Matrix Support for the Family Health Strategy: integrating a Medical Residency Program in Primary Care
Keywords:elderly, primary care
Population aging in Brazil is a fact. More than 70% of the elderly population depend on the Unified Health System (SUS). As the training of health professionals in the area of aging does not keep up with the demand brought by aging, matrix support can be an answer to improve the care provided to this population. The purpose of this article is to show the experience of the geriatrics service at Pedro Ernesto University Hospital of the State University of Rio de Janeiro in the matrix support to the Family Health Strategy, aiming at training the network, professionals, and residents of the Geriatrics Program.
