The Issue on “Care and Health professions” shows how health professions, and more exactly the nursing profession, by its history and in spite of its diverse developments according to countries, is a paradigmatic example of difficulties to identify the role played by care in connection with the curative or technical work, on the boundaries of the health, educational and social activities. Organized into a hierarchy around a valuation of the acute care, the healthcare professionals have difficulties in engaging their activities within inter professional care settings. Those practices are needed for people with complex chronic conditions. They require care integrated over time.
