SILVA, Rita de Cássia Velozo da  and  CRUZ, Enêde Andrade da. Planning of the assistance of nursing to the patient with cancer: theoretical reflection on the social dimensions. Esc. Anna Nery [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.1, pp.180-185. ISSN 1414-8145.

Article discussion that focuses on the social dimensions involved in the planning of nursing care to patients with cancer, using as basic concepts of the Theory of Social Representations. Cancer brings a number of implications that affect the health of the individual, creating an impact not only organic, and affective, emotional and social. From this perspective, the authors seek to provide a contribution to the profession, as an aid to discussions on the topic, as when planning assistance, the nurse determines priorities, sets out measures to organize and guide the actions of their care team with a view to the results required. This practice, grounded in humanizing and respect for others, provides a stronger link nurse-patient-family. The results indicate the need to expand these ideas and to recognize the conditions and work processes to express and articulate the relationship between objectivity and subjectivity of the practice of professionals.
