CASTRO, Margarete de y PEREIRA, Wilza Rocha. Integral care: conceptions and practices of nursing professors. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2011, vol.64, n.3, pp. 486-493. ISSN 0034-7167. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-71672011000300012.
The research aimed to understand the conceptions of a group of professors about integral health care in a nursing course and how they influence their pedagogical practices. It was a qualitative study that had as subjects 12 nursing professors. The data collection technique used was the interview and to analyze it, we used content analysis, in its thematic analysis form. The results showed that there are discursive convergences about integral care amongst the professors, and as an important part of the study, we could see that it is an "axis" that is establishing itself in the course and that has been developing new forms of thinking about the way nursing is being taught, in the reality that was studied.
