LANZONI, Gabriela Marcellino de Melo and MEIRELLES, Betina Hörner Schlindwein. A network of relationships and interactions of the health care team in primary care, and implications for nursing. Acta paul. enferm. [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.3, pp. 464-470. ISSN 0103-2100. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-21002012000300023.
OBJECTIVE: To characterize the networks of relationships and interactions in the healthcare team in primary care, and its implications for nursing. METHOD: An integrative review of literature for the identification of papers about networks of relationships and interactions between members of the healthcare team in primary care and its implications for nursing, published during the period between January 2001 and July 2008. The search occurred using the databases of the Virtual Health Library and SCOPUS, contemplating a universe of 2,276 publications, of which 14 complete studies were selected for further analysis. RESULTS: The literature showed that the network of relationships and interactions of the healthcare team requires interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral actions to add to healthcare service in the daily life of the community, aiming at closer contact with the user, as well as strengthening and qualifying health care. CONCLUSION: It is noteworthy that the network of relationships and interactions is advancing the frontiers of the health unit to add to the service, the daily life of the community and partnerships with other segments and sectors of society, seeking closer ties with the user and his context, and to strengthen and qualify Health care.
