Historically, attendance to the emergency room in Brazil are weak, in view of the lack of professional qualification, low capacity and lack of educational spaces decentralized and technologically equipped for specific training in this area (BRAZIL, 2003).

To do so, we created the Environmental Education in emergencies that have the purpose to promote a profound process of training and continuing education of health workers to adequately meet the urgent and emergency cases at all levels of care system.

Adopted as the methodological procedure Integrative Review of Literature which is a method of literature review that allows for searching, critical evaluation and synthesis of available evidence about the research theme.
