Medical - Medical (general) / General Medicine
Swedish term or phrase: beforska
Context:
Att ”beforska” primärvården
This is the heading of a section in a text dealing with the objectives of a department of a medical university. I seem unable to find a translation of "beforska". Any suggestions welcome.

do research on
Explanation:
Det är en nybildning av relativt färskt datum, men den är baserad på prefixet "be-" som svenskan lånade från tyskan under medeltiden, och som har som grundfunktion att skapa ett transitivt verb av ett intransitivt.

Så rubriken här kanske borde bli något i stil med "Doing research on primary care"

agree  Transcrit: So the "be" in become is from Swedish, via German, right

  -> Don't think so. If it had been a loanword, I think it would have been directly from German, but actually I believe it's from old Anglo-Saxon "bicumen" or something of the kind. But related to German "bekommen".
