STREFLING, Ivanete da Silva Santiago et al. Comprehensive care in abortion and reproductive counseling to the woman who miscarried: perceptions of nursing. Esc. Anna Nery [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.4, pp.698-704. ISSN 1414-8145.

The aim in this study was to know how nursing professionals perceive comprehensive care delivery and reproductive counseling to women who miscarried. This exploratory and descriptive study with a qualitative approach was conducted with 19 nursing professionals who work at the maternity and birth center of a University Hospital in the South of Brazil. The data were collected through semi-structured interviews in November 2012. For data analysis, the Collective subject discourse method was applied. In the results, the central ideas gave rise to two categories: comprehensive are to women hospitalized for abortion and reproductive counseling as a strategy to promote reproductive health. In these, the subjects showed that they perceive comprehensive care as the satisfaction of biological needs and reproductive advice centered on contraception guidelines. Thus, the importance ofthe qualification of nursing professionals and other studies with different approaches is highlighted.
