FRACOLLI, Lislaine Aparecida  and  ZOBOLI, Elma Lourdes Campos Pavone. Description and analysis of embracement: a contribution to Family Health Program. Rev. esc. enferm. USP [online]. 2004, vol.38, n.2, pp.143-151. ISSN 1980-220X.

The humanist and efficient healthcare required by the Family Health Program makes the "embracement" essential. This study aimed to identify how the "embracement" was developed at Family Healthcare Services in Sao Paulo, SP. Brazil. The authors observed several "embracement" links and interviewed healthcare professionals. The results pointed out the clinical and biological focuses of the "embracement". They also showed that "embracement" resolution is limited and does not entail bounding. To make the healthcare services more accessible, according to the proposal of the National Health System, the theoretical and practical perspectives of the "embracement" must be reviewed.
