PEREIRA, Maria José Bistafa, MISHIMA, Silvana Martins, FORTUNA, Cinira Magali et al. Home care producing subjectivity and possibilities of (re)creation of health work. In Proceedings of the 8.

The nurse's work in the Home Care Service provided by the Ribeirão Preto Municipal Health Secretariat made up the object of this study. We started from the assumption that delivering home care allows for reflection in order to review how to act in health care. We aimed at analyzing the work process developed by nurses in the Home Care Service as a trigger for the transformation of the nursing practice and care model as well as at identifying the technology used by nurses in the Home Care Service. The qualitative methodological approach was adopted in order to develop this investigation and the focal group, as proposed by Morgan (1977), was used as a data collection instrument. Eight nurses from the Home Care Service of the Ribeirão Preto Municipal Health Secretariat served as research subjects. In order to arrange and organize the material produced in the focal groups conducted with the nurses, we based ourselves on the methodological process as proposed by the Collective Subject's Discourse - DSC, which has recently been elaborated by Lefèvre et al. (2000). As soon as data had been arranged, we proceeded to the thematic analysis (MINAYO, 1993), which allowed for the identification of the subjectivity category. In this process, home care was revealed by workers with the potential for reflection and who had the power to perform in a way committed with a health/nursing practice directed at responsibilization, attachment and humanization relationships, which means the incorporation of low technology in health production.

Keywords : subjectivity; home care; work process.
