Observations on Health Care Networks from the Spiel perspective

Fábio Solon Tajra Gustavo Silvano Batista Ricardo José Soares Pontes Francisco Herlânio Costa Carvalho About the authors


This study seeks to reflect on the movement towards the construction of Health Care Networks based on hermeneutic foundations, notably on the notion of Spiel and its repercussions for Collective Health. It was based on the experience of evaluative research of qualitative approach on the Maternal and Child Health Care Network developed in the state of Ceará. The discussion lists three units, namely: organization and operation of health services in networks; Hermeneutical game: fundamentals and relationships; and, Health Care Networks and the Spiel: a possible approach? From this, it was possible to understand that the movement towards the constitution of the networks goes beyond the technical dimension and the availability of equipment, devices and subjects. Sometimes it is able to constitute itself independently of the design already formatted by managers and health professionals. The Network is also built from the subjects themselves, whether they are users of health services or not and it is perceived as something in movement and that is renewed in constant repetition. It is independent of the performance of each of the subjects that compose it. The Network itself is the subject itself, as well as the Spiel.
