PEUKER, Ana Carolina et al. Educational booklet construction to prevent cervical cancer. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.8, n.2, pp. 146-160. ISSN 2236-6407.

Cervical cancer (CC) is the third most frequent tumor among Brazilian women, and primary prevention care can reduce mortality from the disease. Health professionals should seek resources for communication to be effective, using practical and scientific methodologies. The purpose of the paper is to describe the process of developing an educational booklet prepared by professionals of psychology, nursing and design, aimed at primary care users. The booklet content was produced starting from an empirical research on the perceptions of women and their behavior to deal the CC. The booklet construction was based on health self-regulation model and Human-centered design theories. The product of this study was the construction of a booklet flower-shaped, with four stories covering the main factors related to the conduct of preventive CC.
