IANEZ DOMINGUEZ, Antonio et al. The demedicalisation of women's daily lives: socio-educational groups in the Andalusian Public Health System. Gac Sanit [online]. 2019, vol.33, n.4, pp.398-400.  Epub Dec 02, 2019. ISSN 0213-9111.

The socio-educational groups (GRUSE) are a health and emotional well-being promotion strategy, from an asset-based positive health approach. They principally target women who attend health centres with signs of discomfort with no organic basis finding. The strategy was evaluated through a quasi-experimental longitudinal design, with a mixed methodology. Information was collected from 228 women with a battery of scales and from an analysis of health system databases. Ten in-depth interviews with women were conducted, and 3 discussion groups with professionals. The aim of this article was to introduce the GRUSE strategy as a non-medical alternative intervention and to present the research design, seeking to identify the evidence of this practice implemented in primary health centres of Andalusia (Spain).
