Experiencing integration: a qualitative pilot study of consumer and provider experiences of integrated primary health care in Australia

The terms integration and integrated care describe the complex, patient-centred strategies to improve coordination of healthcare services. Frameworks exist to conceptualise these terms, but these have been developed from a professional viewpoint. 

The objetive of this study was to explore consumers and provider´s concepts, expectations and experience of integrated care. A key focus was whether frameworks developed from a professional perspective are effective models to explore people´s experiences.
