LOPES, Marta Julia Marques  and  SILVA, João Luis Almeida da. Methodological education and care strategies in basic health care. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2004, vol.12, n.4, pp.683-688. ISSN 1518-8345.

This paper discusses methodological and care strategies or tools used in basic health care practice. It is based on the dialogue established between what we think and what we carry out at the Life Quality Promotion Outpatient Centers (APQVs). These centers are located at two basic health care centers in Porto Alegre/RS, Brazil. Its users are mostly adult and elderly patients with long-term illnesses. The proposal of this discussion arose from a research project financed by the Brazilian Council for Scientific and Technological Development - CNPq, and integrates a thematic network called Education and Care Methodologies to Promote Life Quality. Starting from this empirical and conceptual base, methodological tools were built to develop nursing consulting services in outpatient health care to individuals and groups. This article aims to present relational and operational concepts used in care at these services.

Keywords : nursing assessment; primary health care; basic health services; chronic disease.
