Keywords:Rehabilitation, People with disability, Health education
Objective: To interpret and build a theoretical model of the user's experience in the health education process inside the physical rehabilitation scenario. Method: Qualitative research, based on Grounded Theory (PDT). The setting was a Rehabilitation Center of the Lucy Montoro Network located in the interior of São Paulo State. The Data collection was performed from 28 interviews with three sample groups. The collection and analysis process was guided by theoretical sampling. Results: 122 conceptual codes emerged. It was established as the central category: "Experiencing health education in rehabilitation". As conditions, the following categories: counting on the support of the team and pondering the group dynamics; as Actions-Interactions, the category: experiencing orientations; and as Consequences, the categories: promoting change of habits and encountering resistance in the follow up. Conclusion: The participants’ experience in the process of health education in rehabilitation indicates that it is an action that requires adequate communication and welcoming by the team. In group activities although the exchange of experiences exist among the members, it is necessary to consider the heterogeneity of situations.
