Abstract

This study aimed to know the clinical profile and the configuration of children on renal conservative management. It is a descriptive methodology of qualitative approach, developed from semi-structured interviews and the construction of the genogram and ecomap of family caregivers of children on renal conservative management. The data collection occurred from April to August 2015 and it was used descriptive analysis. The results allowed us to characterize the children on renal conservative management, which showed a predominance female, white, from two months to 11 years-old age group; presented initial diagnosis of neonatal urinary tract malformations and glomerulopathies, on renal conservative management duration of two months to three years, family risk for chronic kidney disease; live with the nuclear family in urban areas and have siblings. They used public services for chronic renal failure treatment and most of them received Welfare Benefits. The importance for nurses assessing family history configuration and references to kidney disease using genograms as therapeutic tools is stressed, seeking to reduce the time between the diagnosis and early treatment. It should be noted that primary care nurses can reduce anxiety in families of children on renal conservative management in need of invasive procedures at school, as well as providing relevant healthcare information.
