SECCO, Ana Caroline et al. Continuing Education in Health with Community Workers: a Project of Health Promotion. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.1, pp. 1-17. ISSN 1983-8220.

This study aims to report the experience of a proposal of education in health carried out with Community Health Workers (CHW). Actions were done based on an extension project, part of the activities of the Psychology Department of a Federal University in Southern Brazil. Such work is being done since 2013, on a monthly basis, and participants are CHW of a Primary Health Care Unit located in the north side of a city in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. The proposal has enabled sharing of information and experiences through reflection and questioning, regarding both scientific knowledge and professional practice. Moreover, the experience evidences that the meetings have the potential for relieving anxiety and promoting health among CHW, in addition to expanding their possibilities of understanding the problems experienced and finding strategies to cope with them. The study highlights the relevance of the integration among University, Primary Health Care Units and CHW.
