BARBOSA, Heloisa Helena Moreira de Moraes et al. Profile of patients treated through the Tratamento Fora de Domicílio program in the Municipality of Belém, Pará State, Brazil. Rev Pan-Amaz Saude [online]. 2010, vol.1, n.3, pp.43-47. ISSN 2176-6215.

The objective of the present study is to trace demographic profiles and other characteristics of patients with leukemia or chronic renal disease and to verify whether these patients are being treated according to the directives of the program. A prospective, descriptive, transversal, delineated cohort study was performed. We interviewed 65 patients of both genders who were treated through the Tratamento Fora de Domicílio (Out-of-Home Treatment) program from August to September 2008. Data related to the patients' profiles, such as gender and area of residence, were collected along with data related to their treatment. We observed that 67.7% of the patients had leukemia. There was a masculine predominance (63.1%) and the greater percentage of patients was between the age range of 1 and 10 years (36.9%). For many of the patients, the most common waiting time to receive financial support ranged from two to four months (32.3%); in many cases (38.5%), the financial support offered by the program was not sufficient to meet the patients' traveling expenses; and its payment was late in 75.4% of cases. We concluded that despite being an important health program, the Tratamento Fora de Domicílio program still has some limitations that need to be overcome.
