MetadataShow full item record
This study aimed at reporting the experience of nursing consultation for leprosy patients performed at a university primary health care unit in inner São Paulo state as well as at presenting the instrument used. This activity is performed by two nurses who have worked in the program for over two decades and have thus become experienced in providing care to this type of patient. The effectiveness of instruments is evaluated as concerns form and content, thus enabling the assessment of actual health care needs based on an expanded analysis of the health-disease process. With this proposal, it is expected that nurses' action will be facilitated in the implementation of procedures aiming at comprehensive care.
