  • The impact of contraceptive counseling on choice of method after voluntary
           termination of pregnancy

    • Authors: Sara Palma, Adriana Taborda, Nídia Nunes, Mário Cardoso, Helena Presado
      Pages: 11 - 20
      Abstract: Introduction: The voluntary termination of pregnancy (VTP), is a public health problem that reveals absence, discontinuity or incorrect use of the contraceptive. Scientific evidence suggests that the ideal time to adhere to a contraceptive is during VTP, since women do not wish to live the same experience. Objective: To know the impact of contraceptive counseling (CC) on the choice of a method by women to experience VTP. Methods: Literature review according to the guidelines of the Joanna Briggs Institute, carried out from January 1st to 31st, repeated from October 2nd to 5th, 2020, with the research question “What is the impact of contraceptive counseling given to women in the process of VTP, in choosing the method'”. The EBSCO platform and the CINAHL, MedicLatina and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials databases were used. Results: Eleven were eligible, published in English between 2014 and 2020 in different clinical contexts. Evidence shows that: it is after VTP that most women choose a contraceptive and adherence is related to the quality of the information transmitted; the CC must respond to the needs of women undergoing VTP; to provide quality CC it is essential to train professionals. Conclusion: Quality CC as an integral part of the VTP process, combined with the accessibility and free use of contraceptives, favors the choice and adherence to contraceptives.

  • Qualitative approach to safety culture

    • Authors: Cintia Silva Fassarella, Larissa de Angeli Guirra, Maria João da Rocha Silva, Cristiane Pavanello Rodrigues Silva, Maria do Céu Barbieri Figueiredo
      Pages: 21 - 29
      Abstract: Introduction: Safety culture is transversal to all subjects and helps managers in decisions at all hierarchical levels. This theme became more evident, since it directly affects the safety and the quality of care, revealing one of the principles of risk management. Objetive: To analyze the patient safety culture from the perspective of nurse managers in a Portuguese university hospital. Methods: This is a descriptive study, with a qualitative approach, carried out in the university hospital of Porto, Portugal. Data collection took place between May and July 2014, with 14 nurse managers, applying the semi-structured interview guide, based on the dimensions of the Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture. The interviews were analyzed using content analysis. Results: Six thematic categories emerged, namely: Management; Teamwork; Shift change and transfers; Supervisor’s expectation and actions to promote patient safety; Organizational learning, information feedback and open communication; and Management support for patient safety. From each of the thematic categories, a more expressive subcategory was chosen. Conclusion: The nurse managers analyzed safety culture with different perspectives and values, despite being part of the same institution.

  • Perspective of specialist nurses on atraumatic care in paediatrics

    • Authors: Maribel Carvalhais, Andrea Oliveira, Carina Silva, Joana Rocha, Maria João Roque
      Pages: 31 - 39
      Abstract: Introduction: Hospitalization consists of a health-disease transition which enhances negative effects on child and family, such as changes in family dynamics, setbacks in development, anxiety and fear. The provision of atraumatic care should be a basic premise in Pediatrics to minimize these effects. Objective: Identifying the knowledge of Specialist Nurses about atraumatic care in pediatric hospital context; identifying interventions and strategies promoting atraumatic care implemented by Specialist Nurses; identifying the obstacles to the implementation of atraumatic care in practice mentioned by Specialist Nurses. Method: Descriptive, exploratory study of qualitative nature, using focus group, with a convenience sample of eight Specialist Nurses in Child and Pediatric Health, and analyzing the data according to Bardin method. Results: From the analysis of data related to the four pre-established dimensions for the study, 12 categories emerged. Conclusion: Specialist Nurses recognize the importance of atraumatic care in Pediatrics, implementing them intrinsically in practice. The main obstacles to its implementation are the lack of time and resources. They recognize the need for the management of human and material resources, the importance of professional qualification in this subject, and the need to create protocoled interventions related to atraumatic care, in order to promote the humanization of care.

  • Factors that influence customer and family satisfaction with palliative

    • Authors: Igor Pinto, Sónia Novais, Maribel Carvalhais, Sara Gomes, Custódio Soares
      Pages: 41 - 51
      Abstract: Introduction: The assessment of satisfaction with palliative care (PC) from the perspective of its primary beneficiaries is essential and is consolidated with the ethical duty of health professionals to provide the best care. Objective: To synthesize the scientific evidence on the factors that influence the assessment of customer satisfaction with PC and identify the instruments used for its assessment. Methods: Review according to the Joanna Briggs Institute method for carrying out a scoping review. The search was carried out in Scopus, CINAHL Complete and Web of Science databases, and in OpenGrey, and Dart-Europe in July 2021. The selection was carried out by two independent researchers and the data were grouped into themes according to their contents. Results: Forty studies were included. From the analysis carried out, researchers concluded that the factors that influence the assessment of satisfaction were grouped into five themes: Availability of Care, Physical Care, Psychosocial Care, Communication of Information and Care for the Patient in Imminent Death. Conclusion: FAMCARE is the most widely used measurement instrument to assess customer satisfaction with PC. Knowledge of influencing factors allows both organizations and professionals to promote better personalization of care, to ensure safety and quality, and to adjust to the expectations of clients and caregivers.

  • Health literacy of informal caregivers on alzheimer's disease

    • Authors: Beatriz Sarmento, Liliana Caetano, Maria João Serra, Mônica Costa
      Pages: 53 - 60
      Abstract: Introduction: Considering population aging and the demographic projections for Portugal, is expected an increase in the development of chronic degenerative diseases, as is the case of Alzheimer's Disease (AD). Thus, Informal Caregivers (IC) have a fundamental role in the provision of care, which is influenced by the literacy level of such population. Objective: To explore the level of literacy of Informal Caregivers on Alzheimer's Disease. Methods: Descriptive, exploratory and quantitative study, with a sample of 28 participants. The data collection took place through a questionnaire and the Alzheimer's Disease Knowledge Scale, on Google Forms, after informed consent. Results: Most IC were female (75%), with an average of 54,04 years of age (12,46), a high level of educational qualifications and a close relationship with the person cared for. They provide care on average 4,18 years (±2,41), approximately 12 hours a day, seven days a week. Regarding the difficulties felt, the majority reported neurobehavioral changes in AD, management of personal and professional life, lack of support and uncertainties of personal training to care. It is considered that 57,14% of IC have an intermediate level (3 on a scale of 1-5) in the way they provide care. Conclusion: Due to the difficulties and needs mentioned by IC, the creation of new health literacy programs in the community is essential. In future studies it is important to evaluate the effectiveness of these programs in order to promote care strategies for IC of people with AD.

  • An alternative in menses management

    • Authors: Joana Correia Rodrigues, Sara João Branco Cardoso
      Pages: 61 - 71
      Abstract: Introduction: The menstrual cup (MC) is a menses management alternative, being little known. This study objective was to discover if Lisbon School of Medicine (FMUL) medical students know the MC. Objective: The main objective of this study was to verify whether the medical students of the Faculty of Medicine of Lisbon (FMUL) know the MC well. Methods: In the study first phase, a bibliographic review was made and a questionnaire was structured and tested in a pilot population. The second phase started after the Ethics Committee approval and consisted on giving the questionnaire to all FMUL medical students. Results: Of the 2169 students who received the questionnaire, there were obtained 970 responses. The majority of participants knew of the MC (93.8%), mainly from social networks, friends and social media and less frequently from family, lessons, workshops/conferences and doctor. Most of them were familiar with MC functions, although there were misconceptions. Of the 755 women, 108 already used the MC, being more recently used. Most women (39.6%) considered its use, being the most susceptible the ones with average-heavy menstrual flow and those who used tampons. Conclusion: Although FMUL medical students heard about the MC, there is a lack of knowledge of all its potentialities. So, it is required to provide information about it in academic/scientific events and healthcare-centers. Finally, there should be a bigger investment in the medical curriculum regarding menses management.

  • Parinaud’s oculoglandular syndrome secondary to sporotricosis

    • Authors: Paula Trindade, Clara Trindade, Raquel Barra, Arthur Silva, Edson Júnior, Jonas Cruz
      Pages: 73 - 78
      Abstract: Introduction: Parinaud's Oculoglandular Syndrome is a rare granulomatous conjunctivitis, accompanied by regional lymphadenopathy. It is caused by varied etiologies, one of which is sporotrichosis, which is a rare cause and little reported in the literature. Objective: To report a case of Parinaud's Oculoglandular Syndrome caused by atypical sporotrichosis, associated with dacryocystitis, attended by an emergency eye service. Methods: The study was carried out from the analysis of the medical record, along with the anamnesis, ophthalmological examination and complementary examinations of the patient. Bibliographic research was carried out with publications of up to twenty years for theoretical and methodological foundations. Results: It was possible to identify some of the most common changes in Parinaud's Oculoglandular Syndrome due to sporotrichosis. Such changes consist of hyperemic nodules in the tarsal or bulbar conjunctiva, related with adenopathy, hardened or fibroelastic, in submandibular and / or preauricular regions. Conclusion: Sporotrichosis is a disease with an effective treatment if readily identified and should always be considered as a possible cause of Parinaud's Oculoglandular Syndrome. This case can be a reference for professionals in the field, both in diagnosis and in the management of patients with such syndromic diagnosis, since it is a rare and rarely seen case.

  • Parents’ perception of the hospital playroom as a therapeutic

    • Authors: Fernanda Cesário, Suelen Pinto, Thaís Aniceto, Alessandra Jardim, Claudirene Araújo, Lilian Torres
      Pages: 81 - 88
      Abstract: Introduction: The hospitalized child experiences a process of suffering, anguish, pain and fear in relation to the unknown, represented by the new environment and the health team that performs the therapeutic procedures. Playfulness is one of the methods that contributes to facilitate and humanize pediatric care. Objective: To understand the perception of parents or guardians about the hospital playroom as a therapeutic resource. Methods: Research with a qualitative approach. Fifteen parents or guardians of children hospitalized in a reference institution for pediatric care participated. Data collection took place through interviews from a semi-structured script with questions relevant to the proposed objective. Lawrence Bardin's framework was used to analyze the content of the statements. Results: Parents and guardians perceived the hospital playroom as a strategy that reduces tensions, increases self-esteem and autonomy, enables a greater sense of security in the little ones, which contributes to greater adherence to treatment and consequent health recovery. The analyzed contents could be organized in three thematic axes: Occupation of the hospitalization time, Playing allows the bond between parents and children and Playing as a supporting therapy in child recovery. Conclusion: The hospital playroom has a therapeutic dimension recognized by parents and guardians in children's hospitalization. Managers and professionals must invest in their expansion and in the continuing education of the teams for their full use.

    • Authors: Ana Quesado, Margarida Vieira, Paula Quesado
      Pages: 97 - 105
      Abstract: Introduction: The person with intellectual disability is in a vulnerable situation, namely with regard to affections and sexuality. Generally, these people have precarious knowledge about sexuality, and their sexual education is insufficient or inadequate to their characteristics and needs, and it is essential for nurses to intervene in the field of sexual education with this population. The implementation of health literacy programmes aimed at people with intellectual disability, within the scope of sexuality, using inclusive strategies, can contribute to the development of healthy and safe relationships. Objetive: To assess the effects of a sex education programme on a sample of people with intellectual disabilities. Methods: Action-research developed in four cycles, between 2011 and 2015, in an institution to support people with intellectual disabilities. Results: In the first cycle, sex education was identified as a priority, and in the last one a sex education programme was implemented and its effects evaluated with the SexKen-ID scale, with improvements in the participants' knowledge being noted. Conclusion: The results of this study revealed the importance of sex education for people with intellectual disabilities and a better knowledge attainment over all the topics, when using homogeneous groups, adapted discourse and interactive strategies such as gamification. The promotion of a dynamic and reflective environment, promoted learning and experiences sharing.
