MASSUDA, Adriano and CAMPOS, Gastão Wagner de Sousa. The Paideia support method at the hospital setting: the experience of Hospital de Clínicas of Universidade Estadual de Campinas (HC-Unicamp). Salud Colectiva [online]. 2010, vol.6, n.2, pp. 163-180. ISSN 1851-8265. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1851-82652010000200004.
This research analyses changes produced in a university hospital using the Paideia support method. This experience happened during a hospital management fellowship course offered to professors, managers, and professionals who work at administration and health care by the Preventive and Social Medicine Department and the Hospital de Clínicas of Universidade Estadual de Campinas (HC-Unicamp). The results were analyzed using triangulation methods. Changes in management, health care practices and hospital relationship with the care network were observed. We infer that the changes were influenced by both the project and the activities of the course. We conclude that this method empowered and widened the changes observed due to the political and pedagogical approach based on the creation of dialogical networks in groups, using a dialectic method on the praxis, with a theoretical-conceptual support introduced by the external tutors. However, it was possible to identify limits to the method application in hospital mainly due to political, ideological, cultural and organizational aspects.
