COSTA, Rachel Franklin da; QUEIROZ, Maria Veraci Oliveira  and  ZEITOUNE, Regina Célia Gollner. Care to adolescents in primary care: comprehensive perspectives. Esc. Anna Nery [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.3, pp.466-472. ISSN 1414-8145.

The study has as objective to describe the actions of managers and nurses with adolescents in primary care, based on the comprehensive perspectives care. It's a qualitative research with four managers and thirteen nurses from the primary health care net, carried out from April to June 2010, using interview and content analysis. From the analysis the following theme emerged: Actions of care to adolescents and comprehensive perspectives care. The participants emphasized reception as a team action, but with the need to establish bonds and create tactics to motivate the reflection on adolescents about their responsibility on health issues. Such actions lead to the possibility of comprehensive care. We concluded that the professionals showed the limitations of care to this population and presented the comparison between thinking and acting, encouraging reflections on strategies that support the care of adolescents in the comprehensive perspective care.
