ROCHA, Semiramis Melani Melo  and  ALMEIDA, Maria Cecília Puntel de. The process of nursing work in collective health and interdisciplinary studies . Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2000, vol.8, n.6, pp.96-101. ISSN 1518-8345.

This study aims at discussing and stimulating reflections on the need of an interdisciplinary dialogue when the object of work is the health-illness-care process. The authors discuss the definition of Nursing by considering its essence, care, its history and practice. Following, considerations about inter- and trans-disciplinary studies on collective health are presented and the authors conclude with a proposal of basing care on the theory of communicative action developed by Jürgen Habermas.

Keywords : health care; nursing care; health; disease; public health.
