Dreaming with the strengthening of Teaching-Service Integration Actions with Multi-professional Interns in Health: An Appreciative Inquiry


Objective: Dreaming about strategies that strengthen these actions of teaching-service integration in the context of multi-professional internships in health can be a way to stimulate creativity and start a journey to build collectively, based on dialog and interaction.

Material and Methods: This article describes the dreams that can strengthen actions of teaching-service integration from the perspective of interns linked to a Multi-professional Health Internship Program. For this purpose, an Appreciative Inquiry was carried out with seven interns linked to a lato sensu graduate program, of the Multi-professional Health Internship type, located in a Public University in the south of Brazil.

Results: Data collection was conducted in the 4D Cycle: Discovery, Dream, Design, and Destiny, from July 2017 to April 2018, by means of discussion groups and individual interviews. Data analysis was performed according to Green, with Edgar Morin's theoretical reference.

Conclusion: In order to strengthen teaching-service integration, it is necessary to agree with the health teams, managers, interns and others involved about the activities to be carried out; in addition, there are ways that the interns idealize to carry out these actions, as moments that favour interprofessional dialog among peers and promote democratic spaces for sharing knowledge.
