Margarida Sotto Mayor, Carlos Sequeira, Belén García.
The Nursing Consultation is one of the strategies nurses can use to obtain diagnosis and provide guidance to patient/family: learning of techniques, specific care and referal to other professionals.
The authors present a study based on data collected from Nursing Consultations. Using a transversal approach on a sample of 50 caregivers and following an “ evaluation and intervention protocol with caregivers ”, they found that the consultation is beneficial for health and promotes reciprocal satisfaction during caregiving, for both caregiver and elderly.
