OLIVEIRA, KÁTIA SANTOS DE; BADUY, ROSSANA STAEVIE  and  MELCHIOR, REGINA. The meeting between the Family Health Support Center and the Family Health teams: the production of a caring collective. Physis [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.4, e290403.  Epub Nov 25, 2019. ISSN 1809-4481.

The Family Health Support Center (NASF) was created with the purpose of reorganizing health care and assisting in the qualification of SUS. The organization of the work process of the NASF depends on the existence of collective spaces, moments of meetings in which workers can be together to implement more qualified actions, increasing the resolving capacity of the teams. This article aims to analyze the processes experienced by the NASF team to produce moments of encounter as a means of producing support for family health teams. It is a research of qualitative approach type, which used work observation and focal group in the field. As results are presented the processes experienced by the NASF team for the collective production, describing how the space of the matrix meeting was constructed and the contributing processes, as informal moments of meetings, such as coffee time. The NASF team looked for integration alternatives, however their practice was captured by the operative work process and by the hegemonic model. The bet on intercessory encounters, where both technical and life skills are shared, is a way to be followed in the production of collectives.
