This exploratory study identifies two existingconceptions of welfare technology identified from policy and practice. By using policy documents and previous research together with a survey of primary care managers and students, this paper identifies one wider and one narrower conception. The wider tends toinclude the whole society, making it difficult to specify end-user requirements, while the narrower focuses on the more vulnerable people in society, which can exclude possible users.
