Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of the study was to describe the clinical reasoning for occupational therapists working in primary healthcare with individuals experiencing stress-related disorder. Seven occupational therapists working in primary-health care participated in the study. Data was collected through semi-structed interviews. Data was analyzed by qualitative content analysis. The analysis resulted in three categories “Changining clients’ life situation to achieve a better balance in everyday life”, “Facilitate change through good collaboration” and “Factors influence on the work”. The clinical reasoning is running parallel with each other even if some of the aspect is more frequently used in some part of the rehabilitation. The major responsibility within the rehabilitation is depending on the client. The occupational therapist supports and motivates the client to change, the rehabilitation goal is usually to trigger a change in the life situation, this requires time and support. There is a need of further research of the impact that occupational therapist have in the rehabilitation of individuals with stress-related disorder, with regard clinical reasoning, intervention for the clients and research on the gender perspective.
