Pedro Chaná, a trailblazing physician, is changing how patients and doctors work together to achieve more effective treatment for chronic illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease and dystonias. He created a healthcare community in which all participants—physicians, patients, their families and support groups—are partners in treatment.

CETRAM ha generado una atención que supera el enfoque médico tradicional, con una perspectiva psico-social, ofreciendo una atención de salud que sitúa la problemática del sujeto reconociendo la historia, su contexto y cultura, su desempeño en lo cotidiano y finalmente como la situación de salud pudiera afectar a el y su familia. El abordaje incluye a disciplinas de arte, salud y social.

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.
