OLIVEIRA, Thays Cristina de; CARVALHO, Liliane Pinto and SILVA, Marysia Alves da. Nurse in the attention of sexual and reproductive health of the adolescents. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.3, pp.306-311. ISSN 0034-7167. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-71672008000300005.
The study aimed at understanding the participation of nurses in the attention of sexual and reproductive health of the adolescents, how they are attended in health units and the perspective of the completeness in the process. The apprach is qualitative and a non-structured interview as used for data collection. Results point to individual attendance according to the demand, and occasional, as in schools. Integrality is the reason of major concern the nurses, due to the limitations of time, qualification and resources. We recommend new studies with epidemiological base toward this group and about the participation of the nurses and population in the Local Health Councils to discus the problems and provide a better resolution.
