MATUMOTO, Silvia; MISHIMA, Silvana Martins  and  PINTO, Ione Carvalho. Collective health: a challenge for nursing. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2001, vol.17, n.1, pp.233-241. ISSN 1678-4464.

This study takes public health as the point of departure to discuss both the concept of collective health and its object and field of action, emphasizing the concepts of man, collective and individual spheres, and health-disease, through a discussion of the interdisciplinary construction of the collective health field. The authors then place nursing within this field, emphasizing what appears to be the greatest challenge, i.e., to approach nursing as a practice of relationships.
