ARRIAGA PINEIRO, Esperanza  and  MARTINEZ RIERA, José Ramón. Nurses and the draft of the Bill of Promotion of Personal Autonomy and Attention to Individuals on a Situation of Dependency: challenges and opportunities. Index Enferm [online]. 2006, vol.15, n.54, pp.35-38. ISSN 1699-5988.

Next passing of the Law of Personal Autonomy and Dependency will cover a great amount of needs: as those of dependent people as those of their relatives. But at the same time it will permit to set a setting in which a great amount of professionals will combine their activities in order to give an answer to those people demands. In this setting, nurses, whose main job is the caring, should be the key element in the diagnostic of the situation, planning, management, assessment of cares and coordination of the communal resources, to give the answer to the communal demands and the approach of the Law. We are not demanding a place, as for that, it should be a space. We want to visualize what the nurses have always been doing: giving their cares -in this case to dependent people and their families- in the framework of a Law of such a great significance which means challenges and opportunities to nurses, mainly in the field of the Health Primary Care, in which strategies in this sense are being introduced.
