SEGURA, J. Luis; SANCHEZ-CARRION, Cecilia; BALTAZAR, Giovanna  and  LAVADO, Amanda. Data registration in a first level child growth and development service. An. Fac. med. [online]. 2006, vol.67, n.1, pp.59-64. ISSN 1025-5583.

Objectives: To determine data registration time in a health center child growth and development service. Setting: Mi Peru Health Center, Callao Health Direction, Peru. Materials and Methods: Study by direct observation of the time used during consultation in 51 users of a growth and development service. Results: Five formats were used for data registration during consultation. Each time a child was attended 31 variables were registered; one variable was simultaneously registered in 5 formats, 3 variables in 6 formats, and 7 in 2 formats. The median time required for handwriting of all formats was 2,09 minutes, equivalent to 15,3% of the overall time used for the child attention. Conclusion: Data registration in the growth and development services demands a considerable proportion of the time available for consultation.

Keywords : Growth; child development; time and motions studies.
