The first day of health opens up vacancies for the treatment of smokers



Smokers in the area covered by the Neighborhood Healthcare facility on May 1st will have the opportunity to leave nicotine dependence on them. There will be 20 vacancies for participation in the smoking group. Interested parties can now schedule on-site consultations or call (48) 3431-3596. The start of meetings should be held in March.

"The patient has to go through the consultation to gather information about his health and history of his cigarette connection, and then he will be sent to the group," explains nurse responsible for the unit, Gloria Pagnan. "We know how many cigarettes pose a health risk, so we form a second support group," he adds.

"Smoking is one of our careers throughout the network and raising the awareness of these people who use cigarettes is important for them to have higher quality and the expected life expectancy," said Jaqueline dos Santos. After the formation of the group, weekly meetings will be held which will deal with some topics such as withdrawal syndrome, weight gain, drug use, and habits change.
