CARDOSO, Cíntia Garcia and HENNINGTON, Élida Azevedo. Multidisciplinary meetings: the health team work in construction and waiting for the subjects of change. Trab. educ. saúde (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.9, suppl.1, pp.85-112. ISSN 1981-7746. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1981-77462011000400005.
The article focuses on team work within multiprofessional health meetings. It presents results of a research that intended to understand how workers experience the interrelationships, in the context of health care practices in infectious diseases in the hospitalization sector of a Research Institute. The theoretical and methodological references articulated contributions of Schwartz's Ergology and the National Policy of Humanization. The qualitative research used observation techniques and semi-structured interviews. The analysis of empirical material was based on the technique of content analysis in its thematic analysis. Among the main results, we found that workers want to find an effective way to work in teams, resulting in a comprehensive and humanizing health care, but a prevailing attitude of waiting for the subject of change, demonstrates the need to make the management they do of their own work process become visible, to encourage the protagonism of subjects and a management perspective in which all subjects can feel coresponsible for the direction of health care provided.
