DELGADO RAMOS, Ariel et al. Validation of the Virtual PCATool Application for the Brazil Version. RCIM [online]. 2018, vol.10, n.2, e10. ISSN 1684-1859.

The “Mais Médicos” Program (PMM) of the Federal Government of Brazil implemented in 2013 counts among its main actors with Cuban doctors (around 63% of the registered professionals), who participate through an Agreement with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).

As in any intervention, a primary objective is to evaluate the results. In this case, for Primary Health Care, there is an evaluation tool such as PCATool, an instrument already validated in Brazil. For practical time and economic reasons, it was decided to evaluate the feasibility of applying this instrument, in the case of the professional version, through the Internet. The results validate the online application of this evaluation tool.

Keywords : validation studies; analysis of Variance.
