Abstract

TEDESCO, Solange; CITERO, Vanessa de Albuquerque; NOGUEIRA-MARTINS, Maria Cezira Fantini  and  NOGUEIRA-MARTINS, Luiz Antonio. Perceptions of professional nurses about occupational therapy interventions in mental health at a university hospital . Acta paul. enferm. [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.5, pp.645-649. ISSN 0103-2100.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0103-21002011000500008.

OBJECTIVE: To identify the perceptions of professional nurses on group interventions by occupational therapists in mental health with patients admitted to a university hospital. METHODS: A qualitative study of the type described. The notes of the coordinators of occupational therapy groups were analyzed in relation to the interviews held with a professional and technical nursing staff that participated in the occupational therapy intervention group for a period of two years. The results were analyzed using the collective subject discourse (DSC) method. RESULTS: We identified four central ideas of the DSC: occupational therapy as favoring integrated care, valuing the subject and his experience, the occupational therapy process to help and care for their own team, the occupational therapy group as a space of resonance and facilitation of the management with the patient because of the perception of relational aspects. CONCLUSION: The strategies were perceived, either as promoters of the reorganization of the life situation experienced by the patient on admission, or as learning opportunities and support for nursing staff.
