The care of the health of women is a huge challenge for users, health professionals and the Health System (SUS, in Portuguese). The production of scientific knowledge in nursing, focusing on the area of women's health, contributes to the provision of care grounded in scientific evidence. In this way, clinical practice can place an emphasis on actions that guide the context of women's health services, in terms of the technical actions of health professionals in the field of good practice. However, an attentive and careful observation allows us to realize that this improved degree of care requires constant improvement in the technical and scientific capabilities of nursing staff in order to cope with new technologies. The correct use of such technologies will contribute to the quality of care to which women are entitled. It is therefore the duty of nursing professionals to attend to such needs by taking advantage of the knowledge acquired during their training, and also in their everyday professional lives.
