Summary

The care of the oral cavity is an important way to prevent local and systemic infections. This study aimed to: evaluate the use of video as a teaching strategy of oral hygiene for patients undergoing chemotherapy. The methodological design used was quasi-experimental before-after intervention. The sample consisted of 23 subjects who performed the technique of oral hygiene before and after watching an educational video. To do so was given a kit with a toothbrush with soft bristles, toothpaste with low abrasivity, mouthwash or product to mouthwash and dental floss for oral hygiene. For data analysis we applied the parametric test t "Student" paired.

The patient was asked to execute the technique used daily oral hygiene that, with the sequence, movements and technical procedures for its implementation evaluated and recorded an instrument to analyze the steps of oral hygiene. Subsequently, patients watched the video prepared individually in the ward where they were interned. After this step, the patient demonstrated again the procedure for oral hygiene. At this point the researcher also observed the sequence, movements and technical procedures used to analyze the steps of oral hygiene, using the same instrument for such employee initially.
