CARNEIRO MUSSI, Fernanda; SANTANA FREITAS, Kátia  and  ALMEIDA MORAES GIBAUT, Mariana De. Nurse care practice for the promotion of comfort. Index Enferm [online]. 2014, vol.23, n.1-2, pp.65-69. ISSN 1699-5988.

Considering the promotion of comfort as a basic motivation of the nursing actions, a political and ethical category guiding nursing practice, the purpose herein is to reflect on the practice of nurse care for promoting the promotion of comfort. Such reflections originate from the results of a doctorate thesis which proposes the investigation of comfort in the perspective of the definitions of the subjects that experienced it and of their interaction with heal practices. In this study, it was possible to observe that the nurse care practices promote comfort when individuals interact with the technical-scientific, ethical and humanistic competence of the health professionals. It is, therefore, in this perspective and experience that some dimensions of this practice that can promote comfort are approached, without any intention of depleting or standardizing this practice, but to give relevance to the interactions which dignify the subjects, users of the health services.

Keywords : Nursing Care; Interpersonal Relations; Humanism; Comfort Care.
