Nursing consultation as part of the Family Health Strategy: a descriptive study


Aim: To analyze nursing consultation as part of the Family Health Strategy (FHS) and to describe the approaches involved in the work of nurses as part of the nursing consultation process in this scenario. Method: This project takes the form of a descriptive research using a qualitative approach in Family Health Units in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Data collection will take place from March 2015. We will use a focused interview approach with 14 nurses working in FHS and through simple observation of nursing visits, recorded in an institutional diary. Afterwards, the data collected will be analyzed with the use of hermeneutics and dialectics, which is the art of understanding the meanings and significances that go beyond what is presented as a finding, without ignoring the existence of contradictions that represent the context in which the events happen.
