The data were produced through semistructured interviews and submitted to thematic content analysis, proposed by Bardin. <strong>Results:</strong> Seven family-caregivers, all female, young people who left work to dedicate themselves to the sick person were interviewed. Three categories emerged after content analysis: family members seek guidance to care for patients with malignant neoplastic wounds at home; they adopt strategies in wound care; and report the need for support from health professionals and institutions, because they face difficulties in care, especially in primary care units. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> Family members of people with malignant neoplastic wounds face difficulties, mainly due to the scarcity of technical knowledge and lack of support from health institutions and from professionals.</p> 2022-04-20T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Taiane Rocha Lima, Marcia Sandra Fernandes dos Santos Lima, Evanilda Souza de Santana Carvalho, Rayssa Fagundes Batista Paranhos, isabelle Félix Meira Araújo, Anderson Reis de Souza ANALYSIS OF THE BUDGETARY IMPACT OF PRESSURE INJURY PREVENTION IN BEDRIDDEN ELDERLY 2022-05-02T20:51:50-03:00 Dayane Ferreira de Castro Roberto Carlos Lyra da Silva Alessandra Santos Portela Kenia Oliveira Barbosa da Hora Monique de Sousa Furtado Sarah Lopes Silva Sodré Glycia de Almeida Nogueira Thyago Bernardo da Conceição Bruna Dutra da Costa Graziele Feliciano Cristino Fábio Gonçalves Ferreira Alcione Matos de Abreu <p><strong>Objective:</strong> To analyze the budgetary impact and the increase in costs of the incorporation of special surfaces for pressure management to prevent pressure injuries in bedridden elderly patients. <strong>Method:</strong> Budget impact analysis, following the recommendations of the budget impact analysis methodological guideline. Two possible scenarios were out lined. In the first (alternative) scenario, the elderly receives a prevention strategy that includes the use of a viscoelastic mattress as a pressure distribution surface and a change in position with a minimum interval of 2 hours. In the second scenario (reference), the elderly receives a prevention strategy that only includes a change in position with a minimum interval of 2 hours. All costs were estimated using the macro costing technique. <strong>Results:</strong> The results of the analysis of the budget impact speak in disfavor, therefore, contrary to the eventual incorporation of the viscoelastic mattress as a complementary strategy to the systematic change of decubitus, of at least every 2 hours as a measure to prevent pressure injuries. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> The use of high technologies will not always be the differential for the best clinical outcome of the patient and it can result in more cost to the system.</p> 2022-06-30T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Dayane Ferreira de Castro, Roberto Carlos Lyra da Silva, Alessandra Santos Portela , Kenia Oliveira Barbosa da Hora, Monique de Sousa Furtado, Sarah Lopes Silva Sodré, Glycia de Almeida Nogueira, Thyago Bernardo da Conceição, Bruna Dutra da Costa, Graziele Feliciano Cristino, Fábio Gonçalves Ferreira, Alcione Matos de Abreu CLINICAL AND EPIDEMIOLOGICAL PROFILE OF PATIENTS SUBMITTED TO LOWER LIMB AMPUTATION 2022-03-25T17:32:17-03:00 Alessandra dos Santos de Araújo Rodrigues Andréa Pereira da Silva Adelzira Rodrigues Cardoso Augusto Cezar Antunes de Araujo Filho Kamilla Rocha Arrais Juan Victor da Silva Maiara Soares Gomes da Silva Rosilane de Lima Brito Magalhães <p><strong>Objective:</strong> To characterize the clinical and epidemiological profile of patients undergoing lower limb amputation in a public hospital in southern Piauí state, Brazil. <strong>Method:</strong> Retrospective and descriptive study, with document analysis and quantitative approach.
