After the analysis four categories appeared: the specific competence and roll of the occupational therapist, the conditions of structure, the client and the occupational therapist, and education in patient handling. These categories creates opportunities and possibilities throughout the learning situation due to the supervision in patient handling. The result has given an insight in the subject supervision and education related to the patient handling. The occupational therapist needs to be flexible with enough knowledge and skills referring to working technic, ergonomics and adjust treatment and communication in the education in order to fulfill the needs of both client and nursing staff.
