DE MARTINI, André. Rehabilitation, ethics and technique. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2011, vol.16, n.4, pp. 2263-2269. ISSN 1413-8123. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-81232011000400025.
This paper initially includes the presentation of some ideas on the deficiency and the process of rehabilitation, whereby the latter is defined in its "condition" as a process. A few differences in relation to the idea of a program in the strict sense (defined as a fixed set of previously defined procedures or techniques) will be detected, as well as some ethical implications in the social, health or educational fields for professionals working with the disabled. Thus, the handling of the technique and the use of institutional measures will be discussed in this context, inasmuch as they are related to subjective and educational processes inherent to rehabilitation work. In so doing, we hope to contribute to a better understanding of the role pertaining to these professionals.
