TEMIDO, Marta Alexandra Fartura Braga; CRAVEIRO, Isabel  e  DUSSAULT, Gillles. Perceptions of portuguese family health care teams regarding the expansion of nurses' scope of practice. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2015, vol.serIV, n.6, pp.75-85. ISSN 0874-0283.  https://doi.org/10.12707/RIV14076.

Theoretical framework: Expanding primary health care nurses' scope of practice is a strategy that has been used in various health systems to good advantage. Its feasibility depends on the health professionals' consensus as to its suitability. Objectives: To find out the perceptions of Portuguese family health care teams regarding the expansion of primary care nurses' scope of practice. Methodology: Focus groups. Results: The team perception is that citizen expectations, the shortage of nurses and the need for specific training are the main issues to be faced. The teams discussed various roles that the nursing profession could take on in Primary Health Care (PHC) via a work reorganisation included in the regulatory framework. Conclusion: The assignment of wider clinical roles to PHC nurses is not unanimously approved of, since it is perceived by some doctors and nurses as inappropriate and unfair. Some health care teams expressed their willingness to take part in this option, due to its potential contribution to improving the response to care needs not currently being met.

Palavras-chave : primary health care; advanced nursing practice; perception; patient care team.
