Professionalism in nursing and care finds expression in the interactive dialogue of physical encounters between the professional carer (actor perspective) and the patient (client perspective). In her book, Ulrike Böhnke discusses the core task of professional nurses and carers. In their day-to-day work, professional carers face the challenge of discovering culturally and historically informed traces of the life course and socialisation of their patients, constructing and re-constructing them, and then integrating the findings in a resource-oriented care and treatment process. The performativity of professional care highlights the relevance of the body, knowledge of the body, mimetic processes and concomitant practices of enactment, presentation and performance. Understood thus, a professional reflexive ability, based on an understanding of the cases from a carer perspective and the ability to form judgment, is a pre-requisite of care work. From an interdisciplinary angle the theoretical framework is explained for developing a professional reflexive ability for nursing and care education and practice.
