ZILLMER, Juliana Graciela Vestena; SCHWARTZ, Eda; MUNIZ, Rosani Manfrin  and  MEINCKE, Sonia Maria Könzgen. Urie Bronfenbrenner's bioecological model and ecological insertion: a methodology to investigate rural families. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2011, vol.20, n.4, pp.669-674. ISSN 0104-0707.

The following paper aims to report the experience in using the Ecological Insertion Methodology and Urie Bronfenbrenner's Human Development Bioecological Model and their use in research involving rural families experiencing cancer. Ecological insertion involved the follow-up of three rural families, who had one of their family members undergoing chemotherapy treatment in the Oncology Services at the Federal University of Pelotas Hospital, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The use of the Model and the Insertion allowed to understand the processes involving a rural family while caring for a person with cancer. It is understood that nursing, being a profession committed to care beyond biological, analyzing the phenomena through the four axes of the model (person, process, context, and time) will promote care actions geared towards the singularity of each family.
