Purpose: The aim of this study was to describe the experiences of occupational therapists concerning priorities in Occupational Therapy in municipal home care.Method: Data was collected through three focus groups where licensed occupational therapists discussed priorities based on a half-structured interview guide. A total of 11 participants from three municipalities took part in the study. The collected data was analyzed using content analysis.Result: Experiences of priorities for participants were numerous and will be presented in three different categories; namely Priority is to do the right things, Support or barriers in priorities and Lack of time and resources affect the priorities. The result includes that a priority list can help the participant to do the right thing, that it is important to have good support from the manager and that the participants, due to lack of resources, only have time to help patients who have the highest priority.Conclusion: It is clear that a lack of resources is a major cause of the problems that arise regarding priorities in municipal home care. The experience of participants, specifically that time is not sufficient and that the workload is greater than the available resources, is a contributing factor to the stress they feel.
