CETRAM is a community of individuals and associations with different motivations, beliefs and cultures, united by a common ideal; “to support each other when facing an illness and its consequences”. A person that is suffering from an illness starts a process , along with her/his family that tests the physical and psychological structure that has multiple impacts in their lives. The focus of the intervention is to provide an organization centered in empowering them.
Our community is born from different fields related to illnesses, social and medical, at a horizontal level.
Empowerment is not possible without participation, it must include the entire stake holders such as patients and their families, organizations they belong to and those providing medical care.
Our project is integrated by four institutions: Foundation distonia (www.distonia.cl) for those suffering from Dystonia and their families, Agrupacion de amigos de Parkinson (www.amigosparkinson.cl) for those suffering from Parkinson and their families, Corporación Centro de trastornos del Movimiento (www.cetram.org) for professionals working with the Centre and the Facultad de Ciencias Medicas de la Universidad de Santiago (www.fcm.usach.cl).
