SAUPE, Rosita; CUTOLO, Luiz Roberto Agea  y  SANDRI, Juliana Vieira de Araújo. Building descriptors for the permanent basic care education process. Trab. educ. saúde [online]. 2007, vol.5, n.3, pp.433-452. ISSN 1981-7746.

Permanent education and basic care have been part of the Brazilian health system from the beginning. These public policies were recently updated, leading to an innovative knowledge construction movement to support their implementation and consolidation. This study, which used a quantitative approach, attempted to single-out the main descriptors that must guide the permanent basic care education processes. The method originated at the University of North Carolina and is carried out in two stages. The data shown in this article concern the first stage, which includes these phases: elaboration of a diagram with all components to be assessed; analysis by a group of specialists, indicating what must be preserved, removed or included; evaluation by judges, based on the 1-to-5 Likert scale; verification of the agreement among the judges. The diagram was decomposed in four dimensions, seeking to answer these questions: for whom? audiences or target population; what? content modules and learning experiences; for what? competencies to be developed; and how? approach to be prioritized. The results showed the validity of the descriptors that were proposed and evaluated, a material that may contribute to decision-making regarding permanent basic care education.
