Permanent Education in Health (EPS) integrates training and work processes and proposes the production of effective results in health actions. It is a teaching-learning practice that articulates knowing – learning – doing. The objective of this study was to identify the challenges, the actors involved and the EPS practices in the municipalities of the State of Goiás from the perspective of the representatives of the area. This is a cross-sectional descriptive study carried out with representatives of the EPS in the municipalities of the State of Goiás, with data obtained through a semi-structured questionnaire, made available for online filling, which identified the participants' professional characteristics, health work challenges, actions of EPS, as well as who promotes these actions in the municipality. It is an integrated part of the research “Permanent Education in Health in Municipalities of the State of Goiás: Participatory Evaluation and Intervention”. 148 municipalities responded to the questionnaire (60.2%) and most participants (68.2%) were responsible for continuing health education in the municipality. Of the total informants, 65.5% were graduated in nursing, 31.8% were primary care coordinators and 58.8% were post-graduated. There was a predominance (66.2%) of those who claimed to carry out permanent health education actions, which were promoted by the municipality itself (61.3%). The most frequent challenges faced in the daily health work mentioned were attitudinal and interpersonal factors (47%), followed by human resources (45.3%) and financial and material resources (40.5%). Standing out as an EPS action, continuing education (43.6%), followed by the (re) organization of work processes (23.9%) and health education for the community (17.2%). It was also identified that there is no evaluation of permanent health education in most municipalities (83%). As an applied production, an infographic and a proposal to support the construction of the Observatory of Permanent Education in Health were prepared, as a technical contribution to the process of disseminating, evaluating and monitoring the practices of Permanent Education in Health for the management of the area in the State . This study presents subsidies for strategic planning of EPS in the municipalities, support to the bodies responsible for its promotion and management and strengthening of EPS actions with the health services.
