Abstract: The mellitus diabetes is a chronic disease that in recent years has contributed to the increased mortality in the world. The nurse stands out as a primary actor in diabetic care by performing nursing care at different levels of health care patient. The study aimed to describe the understanding of diabetic complications on his feet; identifying information submitted by nurses and examine factors that contribute to the incidence of vascular complications involving self-care. Descriptive qualitative research, developed in the months from May to July 2013, with thirty diabetic hospitalized at the University Hospital of Belém - Pará. Data were collected through semi-structured and subjected to thematic content analysis according to the model proposed by Bardin interview. All legal requirements have been rigorously considered. The study included seventeen women and thirteen men with a mean age of sixty . Most respondents had low level of education , ignorance and misinformation about diabetes which resulted in the realization of self-care. The data analysis allowed the learning of four core categories: discovery and control of diabetes, complications of diabetes and foot care; evidence that interfere with self-care of the feet; contributions of the healthcare team to practice self-care with their feet. The discussion was based on the theoretical framework that has supported the research and related theory of Orem Self Care. This research sought to emphasize inpatient hospital setting, as a characteristic for the curative treatment environment, however we believe that it can also be a place conducive to educational activities related to self-care and prevention for complications with the feet of diabetic patients.
