THE TRAINING OF COMMUNITY HEALTH AGENTS AND CONSTRUCTION FROM THE MEETING OF THE SUBJECTS

Abstract This article presents a synthesis of observations developed in a research that had as objective to elaborate a pedagogical project to qualify the community health agents in health surveillance of the worker based on the perception of the subjects themselves. It was a qualitative study carried out in 2016, in Vitória da Conquista, Bahia, Brazil, which used the theoretical reference of action research and the focus group technique to approach the subjects. The first stage of the results exposes the view of the nurses regarding the qualification of the agents in health surveillance of the worker, and the second describes the participation and the perception of the community health agents in the construction of the pedagogical proposal of training. The nurses recommended that the training in health surveillance of the worker be built based on the assumptions of permanent education and showed interest in participating in this educational process. There was unanimity of the participating agents regarding the need for training. They suggested contents, methodology and didactic material for the construction of the pedagogical proposal, expressing the desire to participate in an educational process able to overcome the barriers of training, as a true process of permanent education in health.
