Abstract  
  
Demographic and epidemiological changes in society have increased the need for comprehensive, high-quality care services. As the population in Lithuania ages, the need for outpatient and inpatient care services is increasing, and the services provided to patients at home do not meet the growing need for care services. Lithuania still has an institutional model of organizing health care services that is expensive for the state and does not always meet the needs of patients, and the need for an integrated network of health care and social services in the community is still being attempted to be enacted in draft legislation. In Lithuania, the integration of services is also challenged by the historical fragmentation of health and social care, which results in a lack of cooperation between the health care and social services sectors.
The main aim of the research: assessed the theoretical aspects of care services integration and implementing empirical research, to create the conceptual model of integrated health care and social care services in Lithuania, ensuring the outpatient long-term care services for patients at home.
Theoretical basis of the research consists of the paradigms of health care policy, which define the provisions of the EU countries in the field of organization and provision of integrated health care and social services and define the principles of organization of these services for disabled and elderly people with chronic diseases. The empirical part of the study is based on the insights presented in the theoretical part, and the empirical research was based on pragmatic research strategy and integration and triangulation of mixed research methods implemented in a sequential research sequence: quantitative research by interviewing potential integrated health and social care recipients and their relatives; qualitative research of expert discussion with included quantitative research, interviewing representatives of policy makers and implementers, service providers and NGOs representing patients' rights; and qualitative semi-structured interviews with representatives of policy makers and implementers, service providers and receiving NGOs. The triangulation of the application of mixed research methods encourages the discovery and development of new models.
