LIEGIO MATAO, L. et al. Atención al accidente cerebro vascular infantil: perspectiva de la neurología pediátrica. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.22. ISSN 1695-6141.

Objective: to discuss the prospect of pediatric neurology, care of stroke in the infant city of Goiania. Method: descriptive and qualitative approach. An interview with neuropediatricians open at depth, the material was subjected to content analysis. The study was approved by the Ethics in Research of the Catholic University of Goiás (protocol number 95645-0339/06). Results: the subjects focused on their narratives, much more theoretical aspects about the disease in childhood, which appear seamlessly and coincided with the literature. Analysis revealed three categories, namely: "Theoretical aspects of atroke in childhood", "Care hospital (dis)organized" and "Absence of the community health education". Conclusions: the treatment of pediatric stroke in Goiania is presented to the public so blatantly different. One can infer that the economic condition dictates not only access to service that offers the latest technology, but also about the "quality" of care, since there are no neuropediatricians acting in public, so the attendance is lower than necessary. In the private sphere are significantly easier, faster and skilled.
