Abstract

This article discusses the need for nurses to actively participate in the process of information to patients/users, especially when the news are bad. It reviews the concept of autonomy and proposes the care as ethical model for information and communication to help the person to understand his situation and make decisions. This way, it focuses the nurse's responsibility in the information and creation of spaces and contexts that promote and respect the autonomy of people with a health problem.
