VASCONCELOS, Caroline Luiza Bailona de; FERREIRA, Cintia Bragheto; GOMES, Ana Laura  and  QUEIROZ, Yasmin Livia. Meanings of health-chronic disease-care process for nurses working in public health. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2016, vol.17, n.1, pp. 96-109. ISSN 1677-2970.

This study is oriented through the perspective of social constructionism and aimed to understand and describe the meanings of health-chronic disease-care for nurses in the Family Health Basic Units in a city in the state of Goiás. Therefore, 11 semi-structured interviews were performed, recorded, transcribed and organized according to health-chronic disease-care thematic. Results showed that the meanings of health-chronic disease-care were anchored in the bio psychosocial model precepts. However, care practices were based on the biomedical model, demonstrating a duality between theory and practice in health education practiced by the participants. Thus, it indicates the importance of reflective settings for professionals aiming the construction of care practices aligned to the bio psychosocial model.
