ZAMBERLAN, Claudia; MEDEIROS, Adriane Calvetti de; DEI SVALDI, Jaqueline  and  SIQUEIRA, Hedi Crecencia Heckler. Environment, health and nursing in the ecosystem context. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2013, vol.66, n.4, pp.603-606. ISSN 0034-7167.

This is a theoretical and philosophical review that aimed to reflect on the interrelations between environment, health and nursing in an ecosystem perspective. The understanding of the environment and its influence on people's health, as well as the possibilities that the systems leverage, can produce input for the formulation of new public policies in various contexts, or even provide a (re)organization of existing practices by bringing additional opportunities for attention, in addition to direct and enhance caring in health / nursing. It is concluded that nursing professionals in taking ecosystem actions in their daily, advocates the comprehensive human attention, because they have the opportunity to put in practice actions of environmental, ecological, physical, psychological, spiritual and social nature, thus creating possibilities for a full and interactive care.

Keywords : Nursing; Environment; Health; Ecosystem.
