Resumen

CEZAR-VAZ, Marta Regina et al. Skin cancer in rural workers: nursing knowledge and intervention. Rev. esc. enferm. USP [online]. 2015, vol.49, n.4, pp.0564-0571. ISSN 1980-220X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0080-623420150000400005.

OBJECTIVE

To identify the exposure of rural workers to the sun's ultraviolet radiation and pesticides; to identify previous cases of skin cancer; and to implement clinical and communicative nursing actions among rural workers with a previous diagnosis of skin cancer.

METHOD

Observational-exploratory study conducted with rural workers exposed to ultraviolet radiation and pesticides in a rural area in the extreme south of Brazil. A clinical judgment and risk communication model properly adapted was used to develop interventions among workers with a previous history of skin cancer.

RESULTS

A total of 123 (97.7%) workers were identified under conditions of exposure to the sun's ultraviolet radiation and pesticides; seven (5.4%) were identified with a previous diagnosis of skin cancer; four (57.1%) of these presented potential skin cancer lesions.

CONCLUSION

This study's results enabled clarifying the combination of clinical knowledge and risk communication regarding skin cancer to rural workers.
