Integrality in women's health in the prevention of cervical-uterine cancer: a case study

This study aimed at analysing attention-based management based upon women's health integration in the prevention of cervical-uterine cancer, using interviews with two patients who were given care in a healthcare service in the northeast region of Brazil. In this case study the data was analysed according to the Analysis Fluxogram of the Healthcare Attention Model. In one of the cases total integration of attention scores was identified; while in the other total fragmentation of attention scores was identified. In this study the relevance of greatest attention was played by the manager in the sense of better planning, organization, and evaluation of the service's interventions in women's healthcare; services that sought efficiency, and effectiveness, assuring that the principles of the Brazilian National Health Care System are respected.
