Children with neurogenic bladder in majority of cases require the realization of clean intermittent catheterization, which is done by informal caregivers, especially mothers. The healthcare team, especially nurses, should use health education to empower the informal caregiver and prepare the child for the completion of this catheterization. Education mediated using multimedia, it is still little used to carry out of health education, especially in caring children with neurogenic bladder. Our objective is to develop educational content in the form of entitled course "Educational activities children with neurogenic bladder", translate them into a virtual environment to support classroom learning and not face provided children with neurogenic bladder their informal caregivers. It is a qualitative and quantitative study of the use of action research methodology. The project will be conducted at the Children's Urology Clinic, called Neurogenic Bladder, at the Botucatu Hospital - UNESP. Children are served by medical and nursing staff, and the clinic serves approximately 20 children per month. The study will be divided into four stages: 1. Development of different teaching resources; 2 Availability of teaching resources in the virtual environment; 3- Validation of the developed resources and the virtual environment by the experts and subsequently the caregivers; 4- Providing the virtual environment children with neurogenic bladder and their informal caregivers and other health professionals want to use them. The study aims to generate a public domain product that can be used to incentive the self-care children with neurogenic bladder, empower informal caregiver and health professionals. (AU)
