Health, Education, Research and Care with Complementary and Integrative Practices, Alternative Therapies and Psychological Assistance.
The Complementary and Integrative Practices – referred to as traditional medicine and complementary/alternative medicine (TM/CAM) by the World Health Organization (WHO) – are therapeutic systems and resources which involve approaches to stimulate natural mechanisms for injury prevention and health recovery through safe and effective technologies, with emphasis on welcoming listening, development of therapeutic alliance and integration of the human being with the environment and society (Brazilian Ministry of Health, 2006).
The implementation of public policies for the rational and integrated use of TM/CAM and the development of scientific research on the topic have been encouraged worldwide by the WHO since the 1970s, on the basis of the Traditional Medicine Programme (WHO, 2002).
In Brazil, the regulation process of complementary and integrative practices began in the 1980s, culminating in the National Policy for Complementary and Integrative Practices (PNPIC) approved by the Ministry of Health in 2006 (Ordinance no. 971/2006).
In this context, the Amanhecer [Dawn] Project was created in 1996 by Professor Dr. Nurse Beatriz Beduschi Capella to serve all UFSC University Hospital nursing staff. From 2004, the service was extended to the entire university community.
Over the years, the Amanhecer Project adapted its assistance model to the academic context seeking to develop not only health care but also research and outreach activities.
Amanhecer Project is aligned with the National Policy for Complementary and Integrative Practices (PNPIC), especially when seeking approaches to stimulate natural mechanisms for injury prevention and health recovery through safe therapies, with emphasis on welcoming listening, development of therapeutic alliance and integration of the human being with the environment and society. It covers complementary and integrative practices, alternative therapies and psychological assistance.
The project aims to promote the wellbeing of individuals with an extended view of the health-disease process, giving emphasis on self-care by means of an empowering therapy.
