HAUSMANN, Mônica y PEDUZZI, Marina. Articulating between management and care dimensions in the nursing work process. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2009, vol.18, n.2, pp. 258-265. ISSN 0104-0707. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-07072009000200008.
The purpose of this study was to analyze the nursing management work process dimension in order to better identify and understand possibilities for linkages with the care dimension. A qualitative approach was used, referencing health care and nursing work-studies. The data was collected from June until August of 2005 at a private hospital located in São Paulo through semi-structured interviews with 10 nurses who work in an inpatient care unit and using thematic content analysis. The results show that supplies, equipment control, costs, and scale elaboration are the prevailing activities of the management work process dimension. The connections between management and assistance work dimensions can be shown in the nurse's visit and the Nursing Care Systematization as actions which allow care and management interventions, within the unraveling of a set of other assistance and management actions interconnected in an understood or explicit form, as well as in the care management conception.
