Abstract [en]

Purpose The aim of this study was to analyze how different types of sick leave narratives were related to return to work (RTW), job mobility or continued sick leave for people sick-listed with common mental disorders. Special attention was paid to how the respondents described their contacts with employers and rehabilitation professionals.

Methods Eight persons sick-listed with common mental disorders were interviewed at two occasions (2005–2006 and 2008–2009) about their self-perceptions, their sick leave, and their contacts with their employers and rehabilitation professionals, first during their first months as sick-listed, and a follow-up after approximately 4 years.

Results Two types of narratives were identified: restitutive (with focus on recovery and RTW), and contingent (focusing on managing the present). A common theme was that mental problems were not recognized and talked about in the same way as physical problems. This had consequences for peoples’ acceptance of their diagnoses and for the RTW processes. In restitutive narratives, RTW was essential for returning to life as it was, where support from managers and colleagues facilitated a successful return. In contingent narratives, the experience of sick leave was part of a broader story of change where work relations were of less importance.

Conclusions A narrative understanding of rehabilitation involves sensitivity toward the stories people are caught up in, and what role professionals may play in them. Promotion of job mobility may be difficult to accept for persons with restitutive narratives, while persons caught up in contingent narratives may be more open—and benefit more—from such solutions.

Abstract [sv]

LiU har en tradition av att lärare framgångsrikt har sökt och även erhållit, resurser för pedagogiska utvecklingsprojekt på den tiden när sådana medel fördelades i konkurrens på nationell nivå av t.ex. Rådet för grundutbildning, NSHU etc. Sedan 2008, när NSHU lades ner, finns inget sådan nationellt organ utan varje lärosäte har i uppdrag att själva arbeta med sitt interna kvalitetsarbete när det gäller utbildning. Under 2010 utlyste CUL medel för att stimulera sådana utvecklingsprojekt vid LiU, och tio projekt beviljades medel. I denna rapport finns bidrag från Laura Alvarez et.al; Madelaine Johansson et.al och Gunnel Östlund som är resultat av denna satsning. Under samma tid utlystes pedagogiska utvecklingsmedel inom LiTH, och bidragen från Ingrid Andersson och Johan Hedbrant, Henrik Brandén, Johan Renner och Björn Oskarsson är resultat av denna satsning. Utöver dessa personer bidrar också ett antal lärare med arbeten som grundar sig på deras kunskaper och insikter från deltagande i högskolepedagogiska kurser, undervisning och arbete med studenter, t.ex. på biblioteket. Bidrag från Chun-Xia Du, Ann-Sofie Bergeling, Christina Brage et.al och Magnus Dahlstedt är exempel på detta.

Bidragen är skrivna på både svenska och engelska och varje författare är ensam ansvarig för innehållet. Vid redigeringen av bidragen har en ambition varit att de skall kunna läsas av icke ämneskunniga personer, men ibland är det svårt att förklara det konkreta genomförandet av kurser utan att använda fackuttryck. Vad gäller sättet att skriva referenser så har riktlinjerna varit att detta skall göras konsekvent, utifrån ett givet system, inom respektive bidrag. Bidragen är organiserade i tre delar:

  1. Lärandeideal och utformning av lärmiljöer
  2. Betydelsen av hur utbildning och kurser designas – för lärande och undervisning
  3. Utveckling och förändring av läraktiviteter och lärares förhållningssätt

Abstract [en]

Purpose The objective was to explore the role and contribution of co-workers in the return-to-work process. The social interaction of co-workers and supervisors are analysed within the framework of the Swedish national and local employer organisational return-to-work policies.

Methods An exploratory qualitative method was used, consisting of open-ended interviews with 33 workplace actors across seven work units. Organisational return-towork policies were collected from the three public sector employers.

Results Three key themes about the return-to-work process emerged during analysis: (1) policies and organizational structure for return to work do not take co-workers into account; (2) return-to-work social demands and expectations interact with broader social interaction and attitudes in the workgroup; (3) supervisory management of return to workis linked to workgroup communication and management.

Conclusion An examination of the role of co-workers suggests that the social location matters, and highlights how different return-to-work actors interpret the return-to-work situation differently. Employers and workplaces should consider re-integration of sicklisted workers in the light of workgroup social relations and acknowledge social interaction and the heterogeneous experiences of returning workers, supervisors and coworkers.

Abstract [en]

The focus is on how students construct, deconstruct and reconstruct the meaning of being an engineering student and of becoming an engineer in relation to the concept of employability. Four cohorts of students in a Masters program in Engineering were monitored annually with a “follow up” one year after graduation. Results show that there were differences in the way students talked about their curricular design, career plans, job search, becoming an employee and employable, and job satisfaction. Throughout the interviews certain turning points were identified, where the students had to make various decisions. Many students argued that generic skills and cultural values are best learned in extra-curricular activities and in work contexts, and that doing a thesis project in a firm was the best learning experience . During this thesis process students became conscious of their valuable employability skills, which in the job search process were a good thesis project; a diploma from the program, self-efficacy, problem-solving skills and a broad knowledge base.  On the job, the most valuable acquired key skills were considered to be mathematics and subject specific knowledge; problem solving skills; time management skills; learning skills; and, an ability to manage stress and heavy workloads.

Abstract [en]

The focus in this paper is on how students experience their transition from their education to being employed as engineers in relation to the concept of employability. Four cohorts of students in a master’s programme in engineering were monitored annually with a ‘follow-up’ one year after graduation. Results show that there were differences in the way students talked about their curricular design, career plans, job search, becoming an employee and employable, and job satisfaction. Throughout the interviews certain turning points were identified, where the students had to make various decisions. Many students argued that generic skills and cultural values are best learned in extracurricular activities and in work contexts, and that doing a thesis project in a firm was the best learning experience. During this thesis process, students became conscious of their valuable employability skills, which in the job search process were a good thesis project, a diploma from the programme, self-efficacy, problem-solving skills and a broad knowledge base. On the job, the most valuable acquired key skills were considered to be mathematics and subject-specific knowledge, problem-solving skills, time management skills, learning skills, and an ability to manage stress and heavy workloads.

Abstract [en]

In a multicultural society, ethnocultural empathy has become an important element in most health settings and development of this capacity has become a central component for health care professionals in their interactions with patients and clients. In this study, differences in basic empathy and ethnocultural empathy were explored in a sample of 365 undergraduate students at the beginning and end of four masters programs in health care ( medicine, psychology, nursing, and social work). Results showed that it was mainly psychology students in the first semester who had significantly higher general empathic skills and ethnocultural empathic skills compared to students in the other study programs. Few signs of differences between students in their first and in later semesters were obtained. The observed differences may be explained by ( a) levels of admission grades and applications requirements or (b) different cultures and expectations from the surrounding milieus in the investigated study programs.

Abstract [en]

Introduction Employers can use several strategies to facilitate return-to-work for workers on sick leave, but there seems to be limited knowledge of how workplace-based interventions are actually implemented in organisations. One public Swedish employer initiated a return-to-work programme which incorporated interventions suggested by earlier research, e.g. multi-professional health assessment, case management, educational peer-support groups and adapted workplace training. The overall purpose of the study is to analyse how the programme was implemented and experienced in the organisation, from the perspective of involved stakeholders, i.e. supervisors, occupational health consultants and a project coordinator. The objective of this paper is to identify and analyse how these stakeholders perceived that the programme had been implemented in relation to its intentions. Methods A qualitative method was used, consisting of individual interviews with eight supervisors and the project leader. Two group interviews with five occupational health service consultants were also conducted. Results The study revealed barriers to the implementation of return-to-work interventions. Not all of the intended interventions had been implemented as expected in policy. One explanation is that the key stakeholders expressed a more biomedical, individual view of work ability, while the programme was based on a more holistic, biopsychosocial view. Conclusion Implementation of a return-to-work programme is an ongoing, long-term multi-level strategy, requiring time for reflection, stakeholder participation, openness to change of intervention activities, and continuous communication.
