Physiotherapists’ Perceptions of work in Housing for the Elderly : An Interview Study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Förutsättningarna för sjukgymnasters arbete på särskilt boende ser olika ut beroende på brukarantal, möjlighet att vara tillgänglig samt resurser från kommunen. Flera studier visar på att resursbrist försvårar sjukgymnasters arbete och att det är svårt att tillgodose brukarnas behov när sjukgymnasterna har det medicinska rehabiliteringsansvaret för ett stort antal brukare. Rehabilitering sker på specifik och allmän nivå, och till stor del genom omvårdnadspersonal. Syfte: Syftet med studien var att beskriva sjukgymnasters upplevelser av sitt arbete på särskilt boende för äldre. Metod: Datainsamling skedde genom sju semistrukturerade intervjuer med sjukgymnaster som arbetade på särskilt boende. Data analyserades med kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultat: Vid analys framkom fem huvudkategorier: styrande faktorer, prioriteringar, samarbetet runt brukaren, arbetets bredd samt självbild och status. Konklusion: Deltagarna upplevde sitt arbete på särskilt boende för äldre som roligt och varierande, men påverkat av stress och resursbrist. Arbetet upplevdes bestå av mycket prioriteringar men vad de grundade sig på varierade, liksom upplevelsen av stödet från riktlinjer. Deltagarna uppgav att det är önskvärt med ett väl fungerande samarbete med omvårdnadspersonalen eftersom de sjukgymnastiska insatserna i stor utsträckning delegeras till dem.

Abstract [en]

Background: The conditions for the physiotherapists’ work in housing for the elderly vary depending on number of care recipients, the availability of the physiotherapists and the resources provided at the county level in Sweden. Previous studies have shown that the lack of resources makes the work difficult for the physiotherapists. Moreover, it is hard to meet the needs of individual care recipients when physiotherapists have the medical rehabilitation responsibility for a large number of care recipients. Rehabilitation is carried out on a specific level and a general level and often delegated to care assistants. Purpose: The aim of this study was to examine physiotherapists’ perceptions of their work in housing for the elderly. Method: Seven physiotherapists working in houses for the elderly were interviewed with the help of a semi-structured interview guide. The interviews were analyzed with qualitative content analysis. Results: The analysis revealed five categories: controlling factors, priorities, cooperation around the care recipient, the breadth of the work and self-image and status. Conclusion: The participants’ perceptions of work in housing for the elderly were that the job was fun and varied but influenced by stress and lack of resources. The work was perceived as consisting of a lot of prioritizing; however, the grounds on which the decisions were made varied as did the perception of support from guidelines. The participants reported that they desired a well-functioning working relationship with the care assistants because the physiotherapy inputs were often delegated to them.
