The objective of this study consists of understanding the relationship of care between health professionals and the person diagnosed with an HIV infection. The constructivist approach of grounded theory was used in this analysis as the study method, with data collection between 2020 and 2021. The analysis of the in-depth interviews gave rise to the central category: ’Revealing the relationship between the professional and the person at the time of the positive result for HIV/AIDS’. The proximal relationships between the nurse and the person influence the emotions and actions of both, reflecting on care, bonding, acceptance, and adherence to the therapeutic regimen. Full article

The rapid evolution of the pandemic did not allow for the preparation of different clinical settings. For this reason, the evaluation of the repercussions and the investment in improvement strategies has become important.

The cancer diagnosis in a child is the trigger for a demanding and complex transition, which requires parents to acquire the knowledge and skills that allow them to take care of their child safely at home.

In the elaborated scoping review, the topics to be addressed and the recommended strategies were identified, which allowed the construction of a systematized, personalized, and adapted intervention plan for the purpose of parental education in paediatric oncology.

The description of this clinical nursing intervention reaffirms the therapeutic potential of art therapy in the promotion of mental health in a psychiatric setting. Ten patients participated.

The nursing diagnoses related to the intervention group were identified. The aims and the planning of the art therapy sessions were delineated, and, in addition, the assessment strategies. We concluded that art therapy promoted the relationship between the nurse and the therapeutic group, with positive results in self-concept and mood balance. Full article
