SEVERO, Silvani Botlender and SEMINOTTI, Nedio. Integrality and transdisciplinarity in multi-professional teams in collective health. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2010, vol.15, suppl.1, pp. 1685-1698. ISSN 1413-8123. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-81232010000700080.
This article brings about both a discussion and reflection on the activation of integrality in the work process of multi-professional teams in collective health. It has been grounded on the theory of complexity, by Edgar Morin, as well as on the transdisciplinary logic, by Basarab Nicolescu, to understand paradoxes in the collective action of workers when challenged to integrate disciplinary formations with the practice requirement of inter/transdisciplinary processes. Workers have found difficulty in reorienting the health assisting model whenever their logic is focused on illness.
