Abstract

The focus of this research is the use of an Educational Technology in Health (ETH) to train the family caregiver in the adherence of hypertensive users to treatment. The participation of the effective family is a factor that can interfere favorably in the other factors, due to its salutary importance in the involvement of the health-disease process of its members. Participant research with the objective of evaluating the changes in the participation of the family caregiver in the adherence of the hypertensive user to the treatment with the application of the Educational Technology in Health, carried out in a Primary Health Care Unit (PHCU) in Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil, with a group of eleven family caregivers (CF) indicated by the same number of hypertensive users registered in the cited PHCU. The ETH was elaborated based on the assumptions of health education. The ETH consists of 11 (eleven) weekly meetings, with an average duration of sixty minutes. The information was organized through the Bardin content analysis. After the analysis of the results with the application of ETH, we noticed the occurrence of learning among the FC, but in an unequal way. It is seen that the deficit of previous knowledge about arterial hypertension and the treatment differentiated between them, since each one reported diversified experiences.
