BAGGIO, Maria Aparecida; ERDMANN, Alacoque Lorenzini y SASSO, Grace Teresinha Marcon Dal. Human care and technology in contemporary and complex nursing. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2010, vol.19, n.2, pp. 378-385. ISSN 0104-0707. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-07072010000200021.
The objective of this article is to promote reflections concerning human care, information technologies, and complex thought in the contemporary scenario of nursing. The text relates the presupposed principles of the complexity paradigm with information technologies and nursing care in its multiple dimensions, highlighting human relationships with such technologies. From questioning and reflection, we deduce that conceiving the use of technologies and contextualizing their professional reality in order to better comprehend complexity is a complex challenge for contemporary nursing. We further point out the possibility for innovating care practices for others in a manner which corresponds to the necessities of a globalized world, not ignoring human interaction, seen as necessary and important for managing healthy and constructive care relationships. This opens up the possibility for new questions under the perspective of a more advanced and technologically better organized care practice.
