NESPOLI, Grasiele and RIBEIRO, Victoria Maria Brant. Discourses that form knowledge: an analysis of the theoretical and methodological conceptions that guide the educational material for the training of facilitators of Continuing Education in Health. Interface (Botucatu) [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.39, pp.985-996. Epub Sep 02, 2011. ISSN 1807-5762. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1414-32832011005000033.
This study analyzes the main theoretical and methodological conceptions that guide the educational material of Curso de Formação de Facilitadores de Educação Permanente em Saúde (Education Course for Facilitators of Continuing Education in Health). The educational material, understood as an important pedagogical tool, articulates fundamental themes for the development of Sistema Único de Saúde (Brazil's National Health System). We have identified eight central axes of thought (propositions) that point to guidelines for the management of new practices in the health field. Continuing Education in Health is seen as a co-management strategy that considers work as a space of educational practices and of production of subjectivities.
