The emergence of family nursing in Brazil.J Fam Nurs. 2008 Nov; 14(4):436-41.JF
A family perspective has been influencing Brazilian nursing practice and research, in particular in the past decade. Despite this development, there is evidence from research and from nurses' narratives that nurses still experience serious challenges in providing nursing care to families in Brazil. These challenges are analyzed and strategies are offered to support nurses in Brazil to "think family" and stimulate advanced practice in family nursing.
