"It evokes more ethical concerns about older people" A qualitative study of social workers' experiences about the ethical view of elderly people with alcohol abuse (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to investigate how social workers looked at the possibility that their ethical view of elderly with alcohol abuse affects their assessments. We used semi structured interview, where we interviewed six social workers that works with addiction. The result showed that the social workers felt that the biggest difference between people over and under the age of 65 was the needs, which meant that the assessments of contribution differed. The result showed that the social workers resonated very much about LVM, since coercion in relation to older people created many ethical dilemmas. The personal values of the social workers did not affect the assessment themselves, but they were always there, both in private and working life. In order to avoid their own values affecting their assessments, this was frequently discussed between colleagues. The result showed that ageism is both in structure and jargon, but that there was no opportunity for ageism to influence the social security assessments.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur socialsekreterare såg på möjligheten att deras etiska syn kring äldre med alkoholmissbruk påverkade deras bedömningar. Vi använde oss av semistrukturerade intervjuer som metod, där vi enskilt intervjuade sex stycken socialsekreterare inom missbruksenheten. Resultatet visade att socialsekreterarna upplevde att den största skillnaden mellan personer över och under 65 år, var behoven, vilket gjorde att bedömningarna kring insatser skiljde sig åt. Resultatet visade även att socialsekreterarna resonerade väldigt mycket kring LVM då tvångsåtgärder i relation till äldre skapade många etiska dilemman. De egna värderingarna hos socialsekreterarna påverkade inte bedömningen i sig men de fanns alltid där, både privat och i arbetslivet. För att undvika att de egna värderingarna skulle påverka deras bedömningar diskuterades detta ofta mellan kollegorna. Resultatet visade även på att ålderism både fanns i struktur och jargong men att det enligt socialsekreterarna, inte gavs möjlighet för ålderism att påverka deras bedömningar.
