[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Estudo descritivo de abordagem qualitativa, realizado com oito enfermeiros de um hospital público, por meio de entrevistasemi-estruturada, objetivou compreender como estes percebem a dimensão ética do cuidado ao idoso. Os dados foram analisados conforme o método de análise de conteúdo e organizados nas categorias: Valores éticos no cuidado ao idoso e Problemas éticos no cuidado ao idoso. Revelou-se que os enfermeiros percebem a importância dos valores, principalmente o respeito e a responsabilidade e identificam problemas éticos, como a violação dos direitos do idoso e conflitos nas relações de cuidado. Faz-se necessário que esse tema seja trabalhado no cotidiano dos serviços de saúde; que o Código de Ética dos Profissionais de Enfermagem seja mais difundido; que os direitos do paciente hospitalizado e do idoso sejam divulgados entre os pacientes e familiares, a fim de garantir o conhecimento e exercício dos direitos e deveres a todos os atores envolvidos no cuidado.
[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: This study evaluates milk producers' knowledge regarding cattle ticks and practices for controlling them. Ninety-three dairymen in Minas Gerais were interviewed. These producers had no information regarding acaricide efficiency tests. To analyze the information, open responses were categorized through "content analysis", and descriptive analysis consisting of extracting the profile highlighted by the highest frequencies. The association between schooling level and knowledge was tested by means of chi-square trend tests. It was observed that 92.3% had no knowledge of the nonparasitic period. For 96.4%, what determined the time to apply treatment was the degree of tick infestation; 93.3% used spray guns to apply the acaricide. In seeking to cross-correlate the biological and control variables with education, cooperative action, length of experience and herd size, it was found that there was a linear association between schooling level and implementation of acaricide solution preparation. The other factors didn't show any significant association. These data demonstrated the need to instruct the producers in relation to the biology and control of Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus. It was concluded that the majority of milk producers were unaware of cattle tick biology and the factors that influence choosing an acaricide, which makes it difficult to implement strategic control.

Study subjects may not understand the study process or may participate in clinical studies because they do not have access to medical care. The objectives of the present study were 1. to analyze the motives that might cause a volunteer to participate as a study subject; 2. to identify the social-demographic profile of this study subjects; and 3. to determine whether the motives to volunteer as a study subject are in accordance with the established legal and ethical principles for research in Brazil. METHODS: Mixed-methods research was used (a qualitative-quantitative approach). A sample of 80 volunteers underwent a semi-structured interview, which was based on a survey script that was elaborated from discussions with key informants. The sample was randomly selected from a database of clinical study volunteers that was provided by Brazilian clinical study centers. The interviews were recorded and transcribed. Descriptive statistics were used for content analysis, including contingency tables with hypothesis testing. RESULTS: The motivations for clinical study participation were linked to types of benefit. The most frequently encountered motivations were financial gain and therapeutic alternative. Altruism was not a common motivator, and when altruism was present, it was observed as a secondary motivator. All participants reported that they understood the Informed Consent Statement (ICS). However, only two parts of the form were remembered by all of the volunteers: the section on being able to leave the study at any point and the section that stated that there would be some responsible professional at their disposal for the entirety of the study. CONCLUSIONS: The present study shows that study participants are primarily motivated by personal benefit when volunteering to participate in clinical studies. Whether these study participants had an integral understanding of the ICS is not clear.
