SANTOS FILHO, Serafim Barbosa  and  FIGUEIREDO, Vera de Oliveira Nunes. Internal management contracts within the context of the Humanization Policy: experimenting with methodology within the reference frame of co-management.Translated byMaria Aparecida Gazotti Vallim. Interface (Botucatu) [online]. 2008, vol.4Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1414-3283.

This paper describes the experience of implementing internal management contracts in a public hospital. These contracts were understood as tools within the context of co-management and, within the perspective of humanization, as interventions in healthcare and management practices. With this focus, the methodological lines of the collective construction of such contracts and the indicators for the implementation process are presented. Through the process of agreed targets and participative evaluation, the following results were observed: in addition to increasing the institutional efficiency and effectiveness, the effects unleashed through these tools revealed their potential for transforming the work relationships, promoting co-responsibility between subjects and teams, adding value to workers and forming commitment networks for improved care.

Keywords : Management contract; Humanization of care; Planning; Health management.
