Abstract

SILVA, Thiago Privado da et al. CONTEXTUAL ASPECTS RELATED TO NURSING CARE MANAGEMENT OF THE CHILD WITH CHRONIC CANCER PAIN. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2018, vol.27, n.3, e3400017.  Epub Aug 09, 2018. ISSN 1980-265X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0104-070720180003400017.

Objective:

to discuss the contextual aspects related to nursing care management of hospitalized children with chronic cancer pain.

Method:

a qualitative research developed and based on the methodological framework of the Grounded Theory and the Complex Thought theoretical framework of Edgar Morin. Data were collected through a semi-structured interview and non-participant observation. The 21 participants of the research were organized into three sample groups: the first was composed of seven nurses; the second was made up of seven nurse technicians and the third was formed by seven professionals from the multiprofessional health team. The results of the research were validated by five examiners, three of whom were experts in the research method.

Results:

the “Unveiling contextual aspects of nursing care management of children with chronic cancer pain” category and subcategories revealed that hospitalization of these children is long and is marked by changes in family dynamics, losses and limitations imposed by the disease and/or treatment. Nursing care management is complex, performed through teamwork and requires planning that values the various needs of the child and the family.

Conclusion:

the results show that nursing professionals must contextualize their care relationships, by putting value on the aspects that transcend the biological dimension of hospitalized children with chronic cancer pain.
