Definition of terms relating to the health and social services network

This glossary, published by the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux, presents a definition of the French terms most often used to describe the structure of the health and social services network. 

The document contains a number of terms used under the Act respecting health and social services, such as installation, autorité régionale and fusion. The glossary also reflects the changes made to the Act to modify the organization and governance of the health and social services network, including the types of institutions, missions, and territorial divisions and services networks. 

In addition, five diagrams are presented at the end of the glossary to illustrate the newly reorganized administrative structures.
