PERMANENT HEALTH EDUCATION FROM THE BASIC CARE MANEGEMENT PERSPECTIVE
Keywords:Health Education, Permanent Education in Health, Health education
Qualitative research that aims to analyze the knowledge and application of the Permanent Health Education policy, from the perspective of Primary Care managers in a city in the interior of São Paulo. The data were collected from 25 professionals, through semi-structured interviews. The data analysis took place using Bardin's content analysis technique (1979). The results were organized into two categories: Permanent Health Education: conceptual dimension and Permanent Health Education: challenges to operationalize PHE. These results showed that, in the conceptual field, there is a clear verbalization that professionals know about EPS; however, the space for discussion is poorly articulated, poorly organized and does not occur continuously. As for the challenges to operationalize Permanent Education in Health, it is concluded that it is necessary to invest in the implementation of this policy in order to create spaces and develop and improve the collective construction of reflections on the practice of work, which results in the use of the policy as another management tool.
