Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This report reflects the terminus of the probationary period, included in the Master Degree in Professional Nature Nursing in the Area of Specialization in Medical-Surgical Nursing in the Portuguese Catholic University / Institute of Health Sciences (UCP / ICS). It is hereby that I describe and reflect the work that I have carried out in the development of the skills demanded in the profile of the specialist nurse in medical-surgical nursing. The probationary period was developed in three distinctive realities: Central Emergency Service, in Hospital de Santa Maria, Special Surgical Intensive Care Unit, in Hospital Professor Doutor Fernando Fonseca, EPE and Central Operating Room and Central Ambulatory Surgery Unit, in Hospital CUF Descobertas. To illustrate each module more clearly, it has been used a descriptive, reflexive and critical methodology of all the activities undertaken, considering the goals defined. In this path, the nursing care towards the patient with abdominal trauma has acquired special attention. However, other areas have been equally worked and which intended to promote safe nursing care, among which, the prevention and control of the infections associated to health care, hypodermoclysis in end-stage patients, of the nurse responsibility, auditing of the quality of the care provided in UCPA and augmentative and alternative communication to people who suffer from communicative dysfunction. The work developed throughout the probationary period has unequivocal and fully contributed to my personal and professional enrichment, allowing the development of the skills necessary to the specialist nurse in Medical-Surgical Nursing
