The directions of thecompleteness of the care had revealed innovative, to the measure that value thesingular, global and the ways for the SUS. They reveal the directions, giving the careto the human being in its social reality, with its specificities and subjectivities,considering the social nets of care and where they are inserted. They have tried todevelop learn to learn and make, and learn to be and to live together as strategies forthe learning, creating possibilities for the students to apprehend all the directionsmanifested by the professors. We waint that the results, of this research, cancontribute for the reflection of the professors of the HE on the direction of thecompleteness of the care, in the area of education, as well as, to reorient theformation process, giving potency to the human resources and to the strategies thathave already been used in the direction of the continuous construction ofcompleteness of the care, in the health area.
