PASTOR BRAVO, María del Mar; ALMANSA MARTINEZ, Pilar; JIMENEZ RUIZ, Ismael  and  PASTOR RODRIGUEZ, Jesús David. Strategies aimed at approaching and preventing the female genital mutilation from nursing: video-graphic review. Index Enferm [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.3, pp.159-163. ISSN 1699-5988.

Objective: To identify strategies that can be used in the prevention of female genital mutilation on immigrant groups that come from countries where female genital mutilation is a traditional practice. Methods: Systematic videography review. Research was made between October 2013 and February 2014. Keywords used were "mutilación genital femenina", "ablación del clítoris" and "female genital mutilation". From all the videos obtained, 9 were selected. Thematic Sections: Information is the strategy to prevent the practice of female genital mutilation. Experience and testimonials are also effectives. In Spain, there are intercultural parameters and the no mutilation letter. Conclusions: Nurses can work in the prevention of the genital mutilation by providing information on the consequences of this practice, strengthening information by intercultural mediators or video testimonials. Nurses also have resources to prevent any imminent mutilation risk.

Keywords : Female genital mutilation; Ablation; Nursing; Prevention; Female circumcision; Audiovisual.
