BASSINELLO, Greicelene Aparecida Hespanhol e BAGNATO, Maria Helena Salgado. The Project on a Large Scale in its first times: time for a recall. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2009, vol.62, n.4, pp. 620-626. ISSN 1984-0446. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-71672009000400022.
In this work we rebuilt the first attempts on the creation of the Program of Formation on a Large Scale of Elementary and High School people for basic health services. We examined the Program of Formation on a Large Scale from its beginning, being supported by documentary sources, such as Izabel dos Santos's interview, which filled in all the meanings of this experience. In the investigations, we went trough the purpose and the procedures of the proposal on a national scale. According to our point of view, this experience acquired a wider meaning of qualification: in which the focal point of the work, as a condition to workers' formation process, constituted as a methodological-pedagogical purpose of qualification at the work environment in order to obtain a critical professional.
