Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This "report stage" contextualized in the area of specialization in Nursing Medical - Surgical, of the Master's Degree in Nursing, the Polytechnic Institute of Health Sciences, and Catholic University of Lisbon. Using the methodology descriptive, analytical and reflective, focuses on the stages made in the area of specialization, which continued the completion of the curriculum component of this cycle of theoretical studies. For the realization of these stages, I have chosen as an institution, the Centro Hospitalar Lisboa Central, EPE, specifically the São José Hospital, where took place the Modules I and II, and Intensive Care Unit / Intermediate, respectively, and the Santa Marta hospital, where helded the Module III, Prevention and Control of Hospital Infection. The explanation of the whole learning process, as well as the skills acquired and developed, were based on the interventions of different areas of practice, and activities, which allowed me to achieve the goals originally proposed, based on nursing care, differentiated customer-oriented medium and high risk / family. I conclude that the context of specialized clinical practice assumes a leading role in the development and enhancement of professional experience developed by consecrating, especially, greater competence and more scientific competence, to provide technical and human, as well as general care - skilled nursing care.
