In Brazil, the National Health Policy is based in the 1988 Federal Constitution, which established the principles and guidelines for healthcare in the country, provided through the Brazilian National Health System. From 1994 the Family Health Strategy was implemented with its principles guided by user proximity, centrality in the family, and multi-professional work. Since teamwork in health comprehends specific knowledge of each professional field, it has many possible meanings which integrate into a particular element: human life. This theoretical essay proposes to construct reflection on the implications of power relationships in the teamwork process, from an arendtian perspective. Thus, the narrative research method was chosen, with presentation of the arendtian conceptual universe regarding the power and the power relationship of the teams of health and family health.
