Research article of International Research Journal of Health Education Build up in the oncological patients the capacity to acquire knowledge due to their suffering experience related to the disease Almeida, E.S.F1; Ramos, M.G2; Azevedo, M.C.F.G.C3 1Doutoranda em Ciências da Educação da UTAD (Portugal), Docente da Universidade FUMEC (Brasil); 2Docente/Pesquisadora da Universidade FUMEC (Brasil); 3Docente/Pesquisadora da UTAD (Portugal) Introduction/Objective: The present study is part of an educational sciences PhD program and aims to evaluate the educational process that can result from the suffering process experienced by oncological patients. The main purposes of the study are: (1)build up in the oncological patients the capacity to acquire knowledge due to their suffering experience related to the disease; and (2) be able to transfer the obtained knowledge to formal and informal caregivers. Methodology: Cancer patients were selected that met the criteria defined in the research. Questionnaires were given following the method of narratives beyond the questionnaire of Coherence Sense proposed by Antonovsky. Results and Discussion: We found that patients do not always know their ability to manage their difficulties about the disease and its real care needs, a situation which results in a lack of knowledge on the part of formal caregivers, about the experience that patients have of their disease, with order consequences technical and ethical. In this paper, the salutogenic perspective Antonovsky; and the ethics of care in the health context are the theoretical assumptions. Conclusion: We consider that each oncological patient has an educator status, as he/she can teach and is, more over, the one who can teach not only the possible direction of the disease, but the specifics of the illness; these specifics as the possible direction of the disease, are inextricably linked to what Antonovsky appointed as internal sense of coherence, for which evaluation he built the SOC questionnaire.

After this pretest, a lecture was performed for the students about the diseases and the correct methods of preventing those. The students were divided into groups and they were told to make a poster with images about what they have had understood about the lectures, the clinical aspects of the diseases. Results and Discussion: The students had a satisfactory perception of the sexually transmitted diseases, which was demonstrated by the answers of the pretest and the poster they had made. The action showed that students were receptive and aware that even with lectures and campaigns, the risks of infection were still a risk, and so they sought preventive methods that would protect them regularly ...
