This paper aims to understand what is meant by “caring” in professions. It is often said that in professions, “functional diffuseness” is required in “caring”. However, it is also said that “functional speciality” is necessary for professions because the relationship between professionals and their clients is specialized. In this search, I tried to understand the content of these assertions, through an analysis of the process of judging patients' needs. After such consideration, I raised the question of the general model of professions.
