FRANCO, Camilla Maia and KOIFMAN, Lilian. Care production and pedagogical production in participative planning: a dialogue with continuing health education. Interface (Botucatu) [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.34, pp. 673-682. Epub Sep 17, 2010. ISSN 1414-3283. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1414-32832010005000016.
This paper is the result from the experience of participative planning workshops developed in a Family Healthcare Unit in the municipality of Rio de Janeiro. It demonstrates the importance of participative planning and continuing education as tools for organizing work and teaching aimed towards in-service improvement of qualifications. It seeks to establish the relationship between care production and pedagogical production that may occur through educative practices developed within the participative planning process, thus enabling a dialogue with continuing healthcare education. Within local realities, this allows social control to be wielded (democracy in action), which has the capacity to boost and continue the transformation process within worker-user and worker-worker relationships and enable greater autonomy for users. Thus, this experience portrays one of the ways to resolve conflicts, through using instruments of recognized capacity for helping in the teams' work process and moving closer to the community.
