O número temático sobre Educação, Saúde e Cuidado socializa estudos inovadores na interface entre educação e saúde, ao centrar-se na noção de cuidado como potencializador dos processos de aprendizagens relacionadas ao adoecimento e de narrativas biográficas de pessoas com doenças crônicas. Os textos discutem dimensões metodológicas no campo das narrativas de pacientes com doenças crônicas (esclerose, hipertensão, diabetes, câncer, AIDS, doenças mentais, entre outras), implicando reflexões que partam das experienciais biográficas com o adoecimento, mas, também, análises sobre políticas públicas de saúde, formação dos profissionais de saúde e ações de cuidado em saúde. O número busca ampliar discussões entre narrativas, educação, saúde e cuidado, em diálogo com princípios da educação terapêutica do paciente, de ações interdisciplinares no campo da saúde, do trabalho dos profissionais de saúde e de narrativas de pacientes. O dossiê contribui com reflexões teóricas sobre educação e saúde, bem como apresenta resultados de pesquisas que se dedicam às narrativas e aprendizagens com a doença, de crianças ou adultos, na vertente da pesquisa biográfica em educação, da medicina narrativa e de ações de cuidado em saúde.

Sisyphus — Journal of Education aims to be a place for debate on political, social, economic, cultural, historical, curricular and organizational aspects of education. It pursues an extensive research agenda, embracing the opening of new conceptual positions and criteria according to present tendencies or challenges within the global educational arena.

The journal publishes papers displaying original researches—theoretical studies and empirical analyses—and expressing a wide variety of methods, in order to encourage the submission of both innovative and provocative work based on different orientations, including political ones. Consequently, it does not stand by any particular paradigm; on the contrary, it seeks to promote the possibility of multiple approaches. The editors will look for articles in a wide range of academic disciplines, searching for both clear and significant contributions to the understanding of educational processes. They will accept papers submitted by researchers, scholars, educational administration professionals, teachers, students, and well-informed observers of the educational field and correlative domains. Additionally, the journal will encourage and accept proposals embodying unconventional elements, such as photographic essays and artistic creations.
