CRUZ RIVEROS, Consuelo. The nature of humanized care. Enfermería (Montevideo) [online]. 2020, vol.9, n.1, pp.21-32.  Epub June 01, 2020. ISSN 1688-8375.

The objective of the following thoughtful article is to analyze the nature of humanized care in Nursing. This discussion is contextualized during the practice of doing in the different fields of work where the health care professional is carried out, considering the subject of care, the act of care, communication and the holistic paradigm. The analysis was obtained through the multidisciplinary theoretical search presented by various authors. The literature used also seeks to understand and deepen, in the components necessary for the realization of humanized care. For the above, several authors were consulted through bibliographical exploration covering 34 documents. In conclusion, practice without the understanding of attributes only leads to the realization of attention by presenting as the main characteristic a vertical-one-way relationship between the professional and the user. The indispensable attributes in the realization of humanized care are: the human being, the professional-user relationship, the subject of care, communication and a holistic approach.

Keywords : communication; nursing care; humanization of attention.
