The International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNPÂ®) in the Nursing consultation to the puerperal woman
Introduction: The International Classification for Nursing Practices (ICNP) articulated to the Systematization of Nursing Assistance (SNA) in the puerperal consultation is necessary in view of the importance of offering quality care for mother and child.
Objective: Discuss the contributions that ICNPÂ® brings to the nursing consultation and the quality of care to the puerperal woman.
Method: This is a descriptive, qualitative study, the integrative review type, performed by the BDENF and LILACS databases.
Results: The databases returned 45 publications, but only 10 responded to the proposed objective of the study.
Discussion: The collected data were analyzed and point to the importance of conducting effective interventions for the monitoring of puerperal women and children. Another observed point was the deficit in the knowledge of nursing professionals on the ICNP.
Conclusion: Thus, one understands that using SNA and implementing ICNP enable the strengthening of the unified language, favoring the assistance in a universal way and, therefore, a better quality of health of the population.
