The clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) is an effective alternative to indwelling catheterization, being used for the management of bladder dysfunction including in the home environment through clean technique. The objectives of the study were: Identify, analyze and summarize the scientific evidence on caring for clean intermittent catheterization in the home environment; organize, from the review of the data, the contents of a support tab for adults; and develop a prototype application for mobile devices with organized content. It is a study with a quantitative approach, descriptive exploratory and technological development. It was carried out in three stages, being them the Integrative literature, Organization and content, and Mobile Application Prototyping. From the review, it was possible to evidence the related factors of the CIC success in the home enviroment, guiding the elaboration of the educational content. These data were organized along with other current related subject works in the literature, composing the guide’s educational content, based on recommendations on the development of health’s educational materials. The review of the data contributed to the evidence-based information to make up the mobile application prototype to be built on a digital platform, aiming to promote the improvement of care provided by nursing professionals to individuals using intermittent urinary catheterization, as it is related to the self-care education. The application prototype development involved its preparation in Unity platform by a multimedia professional, structuring the interface, preparing the navigation features and creating icons. Finally, we performed the evaluation of the usability of the built prototype that demonstrated good usability of it, though it is still necessary to carry out evaluation by experts of the end product development. We hope the results of this study can contribute to the advancement of research related to the use of CIL, by developing technologies that bring customers to scientific knowledge on the subject in order to provide these individuals the required quality and safety, and so, achieve higher levels of adherence to the practice of clean intermittent catheterization.
