A mixed-methods implementation study is proposed, structured in phases: The first phase (exploratory study) entails interviews and focus groups with managers and health professionals to support the development of the intervention and plan a final evaluation. The second phase (explanatory study) entails a description of the training of health professionals to use the CC for surveillance of the DI and registration of information in the municipality's information system (such as eSUS). The intervention consists of a series of training and awareness actions, face-to-face and distance, with a total duration of 16-20 hours.
