Strategic changes from a professional perspective : A study of ambulance paramedics in Östergötland (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet är att beskriva och analysera hur en yrkesgrupp påverkas av förändrade kompetenskrav och upprepade verksamhetsövertaganden.

Metod: Vi har gjort en kvalitativ fallstudie av ambulanssjukvården i Östergötland, en del av sjukvården som är offentligt finansierad men som drivs av en privat entreprenör. Såväl primär- som sekundärdata har använts.

Teoretiska perspektiv: Teoriavsnittet innefattar offentlig sektors omvandling, kompetens, förändring, stress, yrkesroll och yrkesidentitet.

Empiri: Primärdata har inhämtats från tre intervjuer med personer som har god kontakt med den specifika verksamheten och de anställda. Sekundärdata har inhämtats från tryckt litteratur och ett antal elektroniskt publicerade artiklar.

Slutsats: Ambulanssjukvården har de senaste decennierna genomgått vissa förändringar. Verksamheten har privatiserats, blivit mer tekniskt avancerad och dessutom har Socialstyrelsen höjt kompetenskraven för de anställda. De ökade kompetenskraven har lett till en ökad fokusering på formell utbildning, och försök till att stärka yrkesidentiteten och strävan efter professionalisering.

Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim is to describe and analyze how a group of professionals is affected by changed skill requirements and repeated business takeovers.

Methodology: We have made a qualitative case study of the ambulance operations in Östergötland, a part of the health care that is publicly funded but run by a private operator. Both primary and secondary data have been used.

Theoretical perspectives: The theoretical perspective includes the transformation of the public sector, competence, change, stress, professional role and professional identity.

Empirical foundation: Primary data has been collected from three interviews with people who are connected to the specific operations and the employees in some way. Secondary data has been collected from literature and electronically published articles.

Result: The Ambulance operations have gone thru some changes the last decades. The operations has been privatized, has become more technologically advanced and there has been an increase in the skill requirements for employees. These increased requirements have led to a greater focus on formal education, and attempts to strengthen the professional identity and a strive for professionalism.
