Student thesis: Master's Thesis


In order of personal and professional development, motivation led to the acquisition of skills in the Masters program in Nursing with specialization in Medical-Surgical Nursing (EMC), conducted by the Institute of Health Sciences in Beiras’ Regional Centre of Catholic University,, which became the answer to address the identified needs and develop a body of knowledge in the area of EMC, understanding it as an asset for my professional practice. For the production of this document, I followed an analytical, descriptive and critical strategy. For better perception and understanding, this report is structured into 5 general chapters: Introduction, Module I, Module II, Module III (which includes sub - chapters with the objectives outlined for each of the modules as well as the activities and their examination), and Conclusion. The objectives of this report are: to describe and contextualize each location chosen for the modules, to disclose all activities in the modules, connecting them with their objectives and field throughout each stage to perform a critical analysis of the same; to describe my journey of learning, reflecting on clinical placements. I developed instrumental skills acting in accordance with the international "guidelines", solving problems, making appropriate decisions and increasing the capacity for organization and planning of care. I have expanded investigative skills in the performance of literature for the various works done and to support my decisions and actions. The abilities of autonomy, leadership, adaptability to new situations, learning, practical application of theoretical knowledge and implementation of management have developed my systemic skills. I have broadened my interpersonal skills and abilities of criticism and self-criticism. In the ICU, I conducted two in-service training sessions on "Communicating with the ventilated patient." I organized a conference at the institution on the topic: "Therapy and Spirituality." I drafted a paper on "Compatibility of administration of antibiotics in 'y'. Also drafted a case study on “Maxillofacial osteomiocutaneous graft due to thorn-cell carcinoma of the buccal mucosa”. In the Operating Room, I developed an in-service training session on "Assertive Communication in the Operating Room" and drafted a literature review on: “Ligament”. In the emergency department, I drafted the Nursing discharge letter, I made a paper on the theme: "Patient satisfaction: Contact with the triage nurse of the Emergency Department" and I wrote a case study on "multiple injuries". After deep reflection on the experiences and relating them to my personal and professional growth, I can say that all stages undoubtedly contributed to the consolidation of my learning.
