Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate how home care staff experience, detect and handle intimate partner violence among elders as well as investigate the level of knowledge they perceive they and the workgroup possess concerning intimate partner violence. The study was conducted through qualitative interviews with four home care staff. The main results showed that home care staff have difficulties detecting all forms of violence, the most common signs of violence they discovered were bruises, injuries and mean words. The staff experienced limitations in their professional role in relation to intimate partner violence and difficulties in knowing the boundary for what is considered violence. Education in the field is missing and the conception about the level of knowledge differed between the staff. The authors argue that there is a need for more education and knowledge to increase the possibility to detect intimate partner violence among elders.

Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka hur hemtjänstpersonal upplever, upptäcker och hanterar våld i nära relationer bland äldre samt undersöka vilken kunskapsnivå de upplever att de och arbetsgruppen innehar gällande våld i nära relationer. Studien genomfördes via kvalitativa intervjuer med fyra hemtjänstpersonal. De huvudsakliga resultaten visade att hemtjänstpersonal har svårigheter att upptäcka alla former av våld, de tecken på våld de märkte var blåmärken, skador och elaka ord. Personalen upplevde begränsningar i sin yrkesroll samt svårigheter i var gränsen för våld i nära relation går. Det saknas utbildning inom ämnet och uppfattningen om kunskapsnivån skiljde sig åt. Författarna argumenterar för att det behövs mer utbildning och kunskap för att öka möjligheten att upptäcka våld i nära relation bland äldre.
