  • » Rehabilitation of Surgical and Cancer Patients Study Group - GARPO

    Lideres:
    Namie Okino Sawada

    Helena Megumi Sonobe

    Aims:

    The studies conducted by the group aim to support nursing care included in the National Policy of Oncological Care. The obtained results contribute to knowledge in the field of nursing intervention focused on surgical and cancer rehabilitation of those otomized for their survival (end) while also focusing on the rehabilitation of their family members’ quality of life (means), through physical and psychosocial actions. The studies follow distinct paradigms and methodologies. The following are highlighted: 1) studies seeking better evidence for care delivered to surgical and/or cancer patients; 2) studies with a quantitative approach in the validation of instruments, assessment of physical and psychosocial conditions and interventions; 3) studies with a social anthropological approach addressing the subjective experience of surviving surgery and cancer for ostomized patients and their family members. The education of human resources for intervening in rehabilitation has occurred through the introduction of scientific projects at the undergraduate level, and in Master’s and doctoral programs, as well as offering related courses in undergraduate and graduate programs. The researchers also coordinate extension groups caring for surgical, cancer and ostomized patients at different stages of survival, in which knowledge can be applied and evaluated.

    Aims:

    Based on questions and advancements in world psychiatry, the Brazilian Health System has undergone significant transformation, creating a network of services and actions in mental health to promote care at all levels of complexity. Mental Health Care proposes decentralized, interdisciplinary and inter-sector care and also links the concept of mental health to concepts of citizenship and life production, generating transformation in mental health conceptions and practices, in the organization of services, education and qualification of professionals in the field. Given this scenario, the PAHO/WHO has proposed to EERP/USP to develop an evaluation project, contextualizing mental health policies in Brazil as well as identifying the performance and understanding of professionals concerning practices, based on the education of these professionals. It is expected that these results will obtain a socio-demographic profile of professionals working in these services, diagnosing the context of their actions and their views of health policies in the country.

    Repercussions of Group work:

    • Since 1992, group members have carried out studies and research supported by CNPq (Productivity). The results of this group’s studies show its effects on teaching, practice and research. The studies of communication in interpersonal relations, concepts and attitudes in relation to mental health/illness, social representation and depression and other severe diseases, quality of life and self-esteem are presented and published in books, book chapters, and editing books (22), periodicals (130) and national and international conference proceedings (227). Another 10 are forthcoming. Eight studies received awards, one of which occurred at an international event (2004). The dissemination of knowledge concerning interpersonal relations and research strategies has been reflected in advising provided both in Brazil and internationally: Doctoral Advisory (20), Master’s (22), Specialization (16), nursing undergraduate program (27) and ongoing Advising (6). The teaching of interpersonal relations has been the primary source of production and reproduction of such knowledge. We are members of the International Association for Relationship Research (IAAR) in Indianapolis/USA. Most studies have been replicated by other nursing professionals and also professionals from related fields. We have been sought to evaluate projects, dissertations and selective processes in nursing, psychology and medicine both at USP and other Brazilian universities. We have implemented research a) on the theme of “depression” in different groups of individuals; one of the projects is supported by CNPq (Universal) and b) on the evaluation of mental health services and nurses’ practices. The use of the Social Representation Theory in the health field permits the identification of the daily content that guides social behavior and the thought of individuals in routine health practice.

    Repercussions of Group work:

    The Center for Studies, Teaching, and Research in the Primary School Health Care Program – PROASE is a result of an extension program work developed with the community and which enabled the implementation of a School Health Program with Primary Schools in Ribeirão Preto in 1985. Since its implementation, it has contributed to undergraduate and graduate teaching, development of research and strengthening of lines of research “Child and Adolescent Care” and “Society, Health and Nursing”. The group of researchers, which has a multi-disciplinary and multi-professional nature, has dedicated itself to the development of investigation mainly related to the themes of domestic violence, institutional violence, support networks, health education and promotion, with projects financed by FAPESP and CNPq, broadening the field of research to the family, health and education institutions, shelters, Child Protection Council, among others. The group has significant technical-scientific production, which also includes researchers from other national and international universities and professionals from different services directed to the care provided to children and adolescents.

    To prepare researchers in the field of collective health including inter-disciplinary and multi-professional issues highlighting nursing practice.

    Research Lines:
    » Health Practice, Knowledge and Policies

    Repercussions of Group work:

    The group’s greatest contribution has been the production of knowledge in this field. Such knowledge is related to: a) Policy and process of decentralization of health at a municipal level. These studies have made it possible to demonstrate specificities and diversity in the constitution and implementation of local health policies and the importance of studying concrete realities; b) Technological organization and management of health practices in the primary health care. NUPESCO’s theoretical-methodological foundation is the health work process and the micro space of health practices. It studies live work in action, which enables subjective action with certain autonomy. Within this theme, NUPESCO also conducts studies on teamwork, welcome/reception in health and communication in health; c) nursing work that is taken as a social practice and is connected to other work in the fields of health and social and health policies. All this production has contributed to the improvement of SUS, strengthening Primary Health Care and health services in the health network in different locations in the region and in the country.

    Repercussions of Group work:

    • A creative spirit, and especially a scientific curiosity, is always present in the genesis of a research group. It was not different when the idea to create this group emerged. Such an interest began with the experience as a professor working in an emergency service; a place of many studies because there was much to investigate concerning the service’s users and the nursing team (knowledge and stereotype), among others. It is a context where the inertia of the health system in relation to referring patients to other services and a lack of family support is evident. Mental health actions or care in the community, alcohol and drugs, and urgent psychiatric situations were emergent themes in practice as a professional and faculty member. The difficulty in choosing a single theme arises from the tie existent among them: the use of alcohol and drugs appears both in hospital and community services and in the diverse groups of the population. Undergraduate and graduate students participate in investigation in these themes, which are published or presented in national and international scientific events and originate from the relationship established with practice contexts. Hence, a body of knowledge, essential for the creation of a research group, was consolidated. Over the years, nurse and non-nurse researchers remain the group, participating in research and professional qualification. Graduate students form Brazil and Mexico have sought the Graduate Program in Psychiatric Nursing given the line of research addressing alcohol and drugs that was initiated by this group. It was also our initiative to create the SMAD – Electronic Journal on Mental Health, Alcohol and Drugs, a thematic journal already acknowledged in the mental health, alcohol and drugs fields. This enterprise was supported by other faculty members from the DEPCH.
