Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This report is comprised in “Final Internship and Report” Curricular Unit, from XI Master’s Degree in Nursing with Children and Pediatrics Health Specialization, of Instituto de Ciências da Saúde da Universidade Católica Portuguesa – Porto, its final purpose being the acquirement of the necessary capabilities to provide specialized care and to earn the degree of Master in Nursing. This Master´s Final Internship was composed of three contexts of care practice: Primary Health Care, Emergency Room, Intensive Care Unit and Neonatal Intermediate Care Unit. It happened between the 5th February and the 30th June 2018, with 360 contact hours and 390 hours of individual work. This report is based on an attentive, self-pondering and expositional method. To its elaboration, I mobilized the knowledge acquired in this Master’s theoretical basis, verifiable, evidence-based bibliography and the activities developed and its individual records. It takes into account competencies, objectives and activities of four domains: care providing, care management, training and research, taking as cornerstone the advanced nursing care for the newborn, child, adolescent and family with a focus on health promotion and development and adaptation to disease processes. Some areas of nursing intervention are emphasized, such as communication with the child and family, parenting, care partnering, pain control, school health and vaccination. This document demonstrates my problem finding and solving capabilities, the aptitude to ponder my actions and to access its ethical, moral and social impact and to adequately communicate my judgement. I believe having earned the necessary characteristics to provide differentiated care in this area, and, consequently, to obtain the degree of Master in Nursing with Children and Pediatrics Health Specialization.
