Health Education in Family Health Strategy Under Users' Perspective
This study aimed to know the perception of a user group on the subject. It is an exploratory, descriptive study with a qualitative approach. It was held in a Family Health Unit in the municipality of Campina Grande/PB. It was used a semi-structured interview script. For the analysis, the technique of collective subject discourse was used. The interviews were divided into three categories: Users´ knowledge on health education; perception of users about health education activities; and the importance of health education. The speeches associated health education to a biological perspective, characteristic of medical care model and focused on the transmission of knowledge, where the disease is the professional´s care object, opposing the perspective of health surveillance model.
