Abstract


Aim:  to  evaluate  the  structure,  development  and  functionality  of families with more than one woman with breast malignancy and mastectomies. Method: this is a qualitative study involving the theoretical basis of structural, developmental and functional  categories,  as  proposed  by  the  Calgary  model,  and  using  case  study  as  a methodological  strategy.  Data  was  collected  through  home  visits  with  10  families  with mastectomized  women,  between  August  2014  and  February  2015.Results:  conflicting subsystems  were  present  in  only  two  families  and  all  presented  with  support  network elements from systems other than family, including neighbors and health institutions. In the  care  process,  the  link  established  that  support  and  frequent  monitoring  helped  to ease  some  of  the  difficulties  experienced.  Conclusion:  it  is believed  that  the  Calgary model enables a broader view of the family to be taken, better understanding in terms of internal and external relations, and enabled weaknesses and strengths to be balanced.
