JUAREZ, María Paula. Dimensions of the community health considered by pediatricians from the First Care Level: reflections and challenges. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2015, vol.9, n.1, pp. 50-61. ISSN 1982-1247.

This paper developed dimensions in community health based on an exploratory study of the relationship established between pediatricians from the First Health Care Level and consultant mothers from poor backgrounds (Cordoba, Argentina). The analysis was developed in some sections: firstly, the methodology used, then the results regarding the role of the physician, the role of strategies, the planning and interdiscipline in community health. Finally, these dimensions were analyzed as current challenges that the community health paradigm must take to achieve impact on the physician's actions oriented to manage communities' health. To do so, the contributions of the Brazilian educator Paulo Freire, as well as those of Latin-American referents regarding strategic situational planning were considered.
