Resumen

GARCIA P, Daniela  y  SAN MARTIN P, Pamela. Sociodemographic and clinical characteristic of the population attended in the Instituto Teletón de Santiago. Rev. chil. pediatr. [online]. 2015, vol.86, n.3, pp.161-167. ISSN 0370-4106.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rchipe.2015.06.002.

The Institutos Teletón care for 85% of the Chilean child population with neuromusculoskeletal disability, the large percentage concentrating in this population. However, there are no registers that enable a profile to be determined on this population. Objective: To determine the profile of patients attending the Instituto Teletón de Santiago during the year 2012. Patients and method: The sociodemographic characteristics were analyzed from the computerised records of the Instituto Teletón de Santiago on active patients who were seen during the year 2012. Results: A total of 8,959 patients were seen during the study year in the Instituto Teletón de Santiago. As regards socioeconomic level, 33.3% were in extreme poverty, 28.7% to low-middle level. The main clinical diagnoses were cerebral palsy and other encephalopathies that also lead to motor disability, and accounted for 55.4% of the cases. Conclusions: As a result of determining this profile, it would be appropriate to encourage the need for a national register of the child population with disability, as well as their particular characteristics in order to make decisions on public policy, as a destination for funds or support programs.
