The plan is to transform a fragmented and largely uncoordinated model into a multidimensional care model that integrates social care systems with health care systems. To achieve this integration successfully, a strong conceptual framework must be constructed, in which terminology will play an important part. Since language mediates a particular vision of reality, when creating a new care model it seems important to focus on terminology.
