Abstract

ARAUJO, Claudia Regina Gomes de et al. THE PHENOMENON LIVED BY WOMEN IN NURSING CONSULTATION IN THE GYNECOLOGICAL BRACHYTHERAPY. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2017, vol.26, n.2, e00140016.  Epub July 10, 2017. ISSN 1980-265X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0104-07072017000140016.

Objective:

to understand the phenomenon lived by women in the nursing consultation in gynecological brachytherapy.

Method:

a qualitative study, with an approach using the Sociological Phenomenology of Alfred Schutz. Thirteen women submitted to brachytherapy treatment participated in two radiotherapy services: one located in Rio de Janeiro and the other in São Paulo, Brazil. The data collection took place between February and November 2012, through a semi-structured interview.

Results:

two concrete categories emerged: Seeking guidance and Experiencing fear. The experience lived by patients is that people who need guidance, fear the illness and treatment caused by the diagnosis and by the performance of procedures.

Conclusion:

the nursing consultation for the patient aids the nurse to understand that each patient has a different degree of understanding and that it is effective to personalize this teaching in order to take care of others.
