What do we mean by integrated care? A European interpretation

J.R. Billings

Journal of Integrated Care, vol.13, Oct. 2005, p.13-20

There appears to be a common understanding across the nations of what integrated care means, and a belief in the rightness of the approach. However, there is a mismatch between how staff think that the service should work and what happens on the ground.
