Abstract: Resumo O objetivo deste trabalho e conhecer os significados que o uso de plantas medicinais como terapia complementar no cuidado a saude tem para docentes do curso de enfermagem na Catalunha. Trata-se de uma pesquisa qualitativa, do tipo exploratoria e descritiva, realizada por meio de entrevista semiestruturada com quatro docentes do curso de enfermagem de uma universidade espanhola situada na regiao da Catalunha, no mes de maio de 2016. Para interpretacao dos dados foi utilizada a analise de conteudo proposta por Bardin. Na analise de conteudo, emergiram dois temas: conhecimento e utilizacao de terapias complementares; e a cultura familiar influenciando o uso das plantas medicinais. Na primeira categoria, destacou-se que, alem de conhecer, os professores tambem faziam uso das plantas frequentemente. Na segunda, ressalta-se como a influencia familiar esteve presente e foi importante para perpetuar o conhecimento e formas de utilizacao durante as geracoes. Evidenciou-se a popularizacao das terapias complementares e, portanto, e indispensavel a articulacao da pratica pelos profissionais de saude desde o processo de formacao, sobretudo na enfermagem, tendo em vista a integralidade do cuidado oferecido ao usuario.

Abstract: From the perspective of Collective Health, this study aimed to analyze how the teaching of health education in undergraduate Nursing courses is processed contemporarily. The Educational Institutions were selected so as to represent the public and private sectors. The subjects, teachers responsible for developing the theme, were identified from the indications of the Coordinators of the Courses. An exploratory, descriptive, analytical, study with a qualitative approach was developed, which utilized documental analysis and a semi-structured interview based on a script, the analysis of which followed the steps of content analysis and identification of thematic nuclei. The results showed that the teaching developed remains largely linked with the biomedical preventive model and that the concepts of critical education and ‘popular’ educational practices are scarce, due to the deficient political education of the teachers, and more broadly, as a consequence of coping with an academic context of the implementation of the neoliberal ideas.

TL;DR: The results indicate the need to implement changes in the professional education of nurses in order to recover the humanistic view while preserving the scientific view and undergraduate courses should develop an interactive methodology capable of supporting a more humane, sensitive and inter-subjective care praxis.
Abstract: This study identifies the perceptions of undergraduate nursing students concerning their education to provide transpersonal care. This qualitative study was conducted in four public universities in Bahia, Brazil with 16 seniors (non-probabilistic sampling) through semi-structured interviews, analyzed through the Collective Subject Discourse. The results expressed the students’ feelings in the face of the challenge to provide transpersonal care; the psycho-cognitive competencies required by inter-subjective praxis; their perceptions concerning the curriculum in relation to the psycho-emotional dimension of being, untying critical knots; strategies suggested. The final reflections indicate the need to implement changes in the professional education of nurses in order to recover the humanistic view while preserving the scientific view. Undergraduate courses should develop an interactive methodology capable of supporting a more humane, sensitive and inter-subjective care praxis.
