CARVALHO, Luís Claudio de; FEUERWERKER, Laura Camargo Macruz  and  MERHY, Emerson Elias. The debate over care plans in home medical care: a necessary reflection. Salud Colectiva [online]. 2007, vol.3, n.3, pp.259-269. ISSN 1851-8265.

In Brazil, home medical care emerges as a potential alternative that offers quality care, ensuring relatives and patients the opportunity to handle health and disease from an innovative perspective. This article provides a reflection on the analyzer -debate over care plans- identified in one of the case studies on home medical care implementation's investigation within the Single Health Care System (SUS). The analysis focuses on the micro policy of health care work in care production, involving both the team and carers.
