Level of EvidenceN/A
The transformative process of a nursing college institution in a health promoting higher education institution, by applying a model bottom-up, participatory health research PEER-IESS (Brito & Mendes,2009), promotes socio-environmental performance, cultural, political, ethical and deontological, scientific and continuous quality improvement, and requires the involvement of the academic community, helping students to acquire personal skills for the exercise of the future profession. Based on these assumptions we formulated the following research question:
How the involvement of a "seed group" in a participatory health research process mobilizes a community of higher nursing education to implement a health promoting context and increases the skills for the profession?
To answer the research question, we defined the following objective: To evaluate the process and the results of the transformative process using the PEER-IESS model from the perspective of representatives of school management boards, the degree course coordinator, student leader and local community leader.
