Abstract
The pediatric cancer, although rare, is the leading cause of death by disease in the age group of 1-19 years. The difficulty in early detection is due to unspecific signs and symptoms resembling common childhood diseases. Thus, telehealth can contribute significantly in the training of primary care professionals to the suspicions of these neoplasms. The objective was to evaluate the course “Be alert: Can be cancer! The telehealth as early suspicion tool to the pediatric cancer” for professionals in the primary health care in the city of Recife, Brazil. This was a community intervention and quantitative approach, performed from the analysis of the results of before and post-test which was conducted in 2015 and transmitted by web conference. The participants were 309 professionals, averaging work in this area of 11.3 years, standard deviation of 1 to 4.8 years. Of these, 79.6% (246) had no training in this subject. It was found that the course “Be alert: Can be cancer” had positive impact on knowledge of primary health care professionals about pediatrics cancer. After the course was possible to identify that the professionals were able to correctly answer questions about incidence (p<0.001); types, signs and symptoms; factors that influence (p<0.001) and network of reference and counter-reference of neoplasms in children and young (p<0.001). The telehealth has shown the driving force in the training of professionals, thus, contributing to the qualification from the perspective of early diagnostics, better outcomes and, consequently, the chances of cure and survival of children and adolescents.
