“Unfortunately, it can be many at times” : - A qualitative study about unit managers views on staff continuity in municipal home care services (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate unit managers views on staff continuity within municipal home care services to get a wider understanding regarding the organization’s work with staff continuity, which action dilemmas the unit managers encounter and how they handle these. The study was conducted by qualitative research through semi-structured interviews with six unit managers in one middle-sized municipality in Sweden. The results showed a diverseness in working methods regarding staff continuity between the home care services in the municipality. It was also concluded that the home care services are guided by goals and guidelines regarding staff continuity which the unit managers finds unclear and undeveloped. The conclusion highlights that the unit managers finds themselves in a position where the care users needs and requests of a staff continuity does not always match the conditions and regulations within the organization. Lastly the results showed that this position causes the unit managers to make priorities in the work for staff continuity. It can be concluded that the unit managers either finds themselves adjusting to the organizations conditions or regulations or they find solutions to meet the request and needs from the care users regarding staff continuity.
