To normatively evaluate CIATox in the context of toxicological assistance and surveillance in the SUS to seek the integrality of what the National Policy for Emergency Care and Ordinance proposes.

Semi-structured interviews on the axes of structure, processes and results of the CIATox for data collection and computation using SurveyMonkey® software.

CIATox are often in the media, in health surveillance and education activities. All carry out the classification and follow-up of the cases until the outcome, 85’ of the CIATox attend 24 hours a week and multiprofessionally, 48’ recognize themselves inserted in the RUE, 36’ pass on data to the Epidemiological Surveillance for notification and none received the funding provided for in the Ordinance.

Different points of the axes analyzed are in normative non-compliance, such as the different formalizations in the RUE and the lack of funding, which compromise the CIATox. There is a need to structure and qualify the service so that assistance and toxicological surveillance fully meet the objectives of the Policy and principles of the SUS.
