This project is a continuation of the FAPESP Process No. 2014 / 08663-1. After identifyed factors affecting adherence to the precautions to microorganisms control in primary health care (PHC), was developed and validated for the evaluation of knowledge and Self-referenced membership; and, elaborated and validated educational strategy (Webquest) for APS nursing professionals. Adherence of health workers to Standard Precautions and Specific Precautions is essential to prevent the transmission of microorganisms, both in the hospital setting and in primary health care. It is well known that among health professionals' adherence is very low to these precautions and that other factors besides knowledge may affect these practices. Adherence to precaution practices involves a complex process, which includes knowledge, awareness, social influence, attitudes, self-efficacy, intentionality and behaviors (actions) of control, maintenance and facilitation by the health structures in which the professionals are inserted. Methods and strategies that favor interference in one or more components of this complex system may increase compliance with good precaution practices. It is therefore necessary to develop new strategies with the potential to improve this. The present research proposes to evaluate the educational method developed and its potential to interfere in the adherence to the practices of precautions in PHC. In Brazil, to date, there are no large-scale studies aimed at instituting and analyzing strategies that propose to change professional practices in this area. Quantitative design project, randomized clinical trial, no blinded that aims to evaluate the effectiveness of an educational strategy in improving knowledge and the applicability of that to the world of work.
