GREGIS, Cristiano  and  MARTINI, Jussara Gue. Cultural competence process in nursing care to injectable drugs users in the damage reduction project in Porto Alegre, Brazil. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2006, vol.2, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1806-6976.

This study aims to discuss nursing interventions in the activities of a Damage Reduction Program (PRD), centered in transcultural nursing care. The field work was developed in the PRD in Porto Alegre, from 1998 to 2000, starting from nursing care to addicts attended by PRD staff. We concluded that, beyond the syringes exchange, nursing care practice with cultural competence allows for a comprehension of the complexity implied in the approach of questions related to drugs use in society
