Clinical management in nursing requires structural changes. In order for the creation of Management Units for Treatment of Patients to be successful, a predisposition is necessary as well as the need for professionals to assume the role of a participant in this innovation. It is obligatory to carry out an investigative process prior to putting this change into effect. In our study, we ran a two phase investigation: in the first phase, brainstorming was the method employed, with a subsequent process during which ideas were grouped together according to their common traits; in the second phase, a nominal group technique was used. Four groups each having a different profile for the four segments to be analyzed were set up. There were 39 participants. Samples selection was carried out in a non-probabilistic systematic manner, by means of key informants. The results indicated there is a high interest level in this topic, as well as controversy. There is a variety in expectations and information is abundant, prioritized and classified.
