ACEBEDO-URDIALES, Sagrario; JIMENEZ-HERRERA, María Fca.; RODERO-SANCHEZ, Virtudes y VIVES-RELATS, Carme. Re-thinking the complexities of the professional role from Bourdieu's theory. Index Enferm [online]. 2011, vol.20, n.1-2, pp.86-90. ISSN 1132-1296. http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S1132-12962011000100018.
The objective of this article is to do a critical appreciation from the theoretical and practical perspectives of the professional role, in an effort to exceed the language and the dominant practice. We highlight the necessity of working beyond the descriptions of autonomous tasks and tasks of collaboration, and showing forms which situate our practices in a culture of compromise to promote the creation of contexts which have the potential to offer knowledge and recognition of intentional caring. We analyse the professional role from the theory of the Bourdieu practice, trying to clarify our role with the help of this practice and mainly to redefine structures and modify dispositions, paying special attention to the concept of habitus and symbolic capital.
