Aim: To analyze the strategies of permanent education in health (EPS, in Portuguese) taking into account the Brazilian National Policy of Permanent Education in Health (PNEPS, in Portuguese) and micropolitical construction; to understand the situation of EPS management and other health practices, to identify the predominant educational concept and its directions; to describe the strengths and the limitations associated with incorporating the EPS actions in the work routines in healthcare; to correlate the concept of EPS in PNEPS in terms of practical organization. Method: This is a descriptive and exploratory study using a qualitative approach, to be performed through the analysis of EPS processes within the municipal spectrum. The data will be collected through an analysis of official documents and semi-structured interviews with managers/other professionals responsible for the processes of education in the region, and with professionals who have already participated in the activities of the Family Health Strategy. The probable period for collecting the data will be from October 2013 to December 2013.
