This is an end of course work that has as its subject nurse training in the home care of special needs patients, particularly, of patients with cerebral paralysis. Its aim is to sensitize the nurse to the peculiarities of Attention Services at home and for patients with cerebral palsy. To direct the course of this work, we present as a study the problem of the identification of the main necessities of the patients with cerebral palsy in Attention Services at home. The general objective of this research will be to describe the training process of specialist nurses in home care and the specific objectives will be: To identify the main requirements of patients with special needs and cerebral palsy, and to describe how nurses are prepared for this type of care of patients and their family. It was opted to carry out a bibliographical research, contemplating a qualitative focus, of explorative nature, descriptive and explanatory, resulting in the following thematic categories: The perception of the importance of "being a nurse in home care" and the relevance of the knowledge of the needs of patients with cerebral palsy and their family, in regards to home internment. From its development, it was possible to perceive that the academic focus given to this type of service and to this type of patient is limited, and that a specific specialization for the peculiarities of the service of home care and the peculiarities of a patient with cerebral palsy is still restricted. We conclude that greater assessment and study of the service of home care, as well as the patient with cerebral palsy, is necessary. As much during study as after graduation because this is a service in expansion and the patient needs complete care. We hope that this study contributes to a greater interest in the subject, facilitating the assistance of patients in home care, particularly those with special needs.
