[Empowerment and power: their relationship in the proces of caring for the chronically ill in primary care].

Rev Enferm 2014 Jun;37(6):32-9

The concepts of "power" and "empowerment" are used in various disciplines, both political and social. Now are these terms frequently in the field of health. Our goal is to know its meaning as a synonym of expressions: "energy", "force", "domain", "vigour", "power", "capacity", "authority" and "control", which have been always within our practice nurse's own lexicon. Semantically analyzing them will help us in the understanding of its nuance. The literature review facilitates their understanding and allows us to link these words within the management of care. In this way we can propose diagnoses, interventions and outcomes specifically related to these concepts, which will help us optimize the efficiency in the management of care plans. The purpose of various collective nurses from different institutions is that the person is able to not generate dependencies and have the option of choosing your own lifestyle according to their culture and environment, independently or with the help. Generate knowledge is to generate power. The person should be educated and informed, to be expert and active and taking action to help control and minimize the progression of your health problem chronic and its possible complications. We are in the process of reformulation of the health system, whether it is private or public, and is necessary to know the power of the various actors involved in the management of the care to us. Each of these main actors--person ill, family/caregiver or nurse--has to know what is his role in this process.

Atención Primaria, SAP Esquerra de Barcelona.

Due to the celebration of the 90th anniversary, 1917-2007, of the Santa Madrona University School of Nursing, an International Conference on "the humanization of treatment" took place in Barcelona. At the same time, a four-day workshop session was organized at which the attendees had the chance to meet and share professional experiences with three renowned nurses on the art of caring. Dr. Benner, Dr. Watson and Dr. Bower are well-known in the international and the teaching fields for their paradigms and theories on managing treatment. The contribution of their knowledge, their creation and their constant work with humanistic criteria is supported by a long bibliographical trajectory which offers a professional history based on continuous improvement, learning and evolution. As participants in these workshops, the authors provide a narration on the content of each one, from a personal and practical perspective, emphasizing some concepts and strategies which we can apply in our own environs, confronting a new integrated care challenge and management of treatment underneath a focus less mechanical and more humane.
