PIRES, Maria Raquel Gomes Maia. Politicity of care and work process in health: knowing to take a better care, taking care to confront, taking care to emancipate . Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2005, vol.10, n.4, pp. 1025-1035. ISSN 1413-8123. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-81232005000400025.
Politicity of care is about handling the disruptive of the relation between help and power for the construction of the autonomy of subjects. Such conception is expressed mostly by the trihedron knowing to take a better care, taking care to confront and taking care to emancipate, that, in social-historical specific contexts and adapted to the working process in health, can constitute a reoriented reference of the domain relations. It is a theoretician-philosophical reflection, based in a doctorate thesis, which deepens the ambiguity of the care, conceived such by the way of being solidary, such as by becoming to be political. This article aims to indicate the applicability of the politicity conception of the care in the scope of the health professionals working process, signaling emancipatories potentialities. The first part makes a deep reflection about the policity of caring in its ontological, social and political dimensions, arguing about the tense relation existing between help and power which is present in the gesture of taking care. The second part contextualizes this theory in the unlike form of organizing and producing health care, presenting the discuss about the change of the attention model to the health. The third part is based in the emancipatory trihedron of caring and points emancipatory indications to the working process of the professionals.
