BARTSCHI GABATZ, Ruth Irmgard et al. Vulnerabilities Experienced in the Schooling of Children and Adolescents with Chronic Diseases: Perspective of Education Professionals. Enfermería (Montevideo) [online]. 2022, vol.11, n.1, e2625.  Epub June 01, 2022. ISSN 1688-8375.


To know the perspective of education professionals about the difficulties faced in the school education of children and adolescents with chronic diseases, considering the aspects of vulnerability.


Descriptive and exploratory study of a qualitative nature. Data collection was carried out in a city in southern Brazil. The participants were fifteen education professionals who, in their daily routine, assist children or adolescents with chronic diseases. Data was analyzed through thematic analysis and interpreted through the concept of vulnerability.


Three themes emerged: programmatic vulnerabilities experienced in schooling and caring for children and adolescents with chronic illness; individual vulnerabilities experienced in the relationship between the family and the school and its influence on the schooling process; and social vulnerability and the schooling process of children and adolescents with chronic diseases.


There is an evident need for an accurate look at the dimensions of vulnerabilities experienced, involving the availability of human and material resources, to minimize adversities and limitations in schooling, aiming to address individual demands of students, their families, and educators.
