Use of the Nominal Group Technique and the Delphi Method to draw up evaluation indicators for strategies to deal with violence against children and adolescents in Brazil. Rev. Bras. Saude Mater. Infant. [online]. 2010, vol.10, suppl.1, pp.s29-s37. ISSN 1806-9304. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1519-38292010000500003.
OBJECTIVES: the aim of this study is to present a method for the production and selection of indicators to evaluate and/or monitor strategies to: a) prevent violence and promote protective family and community relations; b) provide care for victims of such violence and their family members; c) upgrade the recording and reporting of such violence; d) guarantee the rights of child and adolescent victims; and e) ensure due prosecution of perpetrators. METHODS: consensus-generating participatory methodologies were used (Delphi Method and Nominal Group Technique). RESULTS: 113 indicators were produced, with 27 and 91 indicators selected in scenarios with different scores. CONCLUSIONS: the consensus methodologies were adequate for the selection and validation of evaluation indicators, but criteria need to be established for selection among the indicators adopted.
