Is collaboration well-functioning? : A qualitative study on how the social service and psychiatric care work with comorbidity (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka hur man inom socialtjänst och psykiatri i en kommun i mellansverige arbetar med samsjuklighet avseende missbruk och psykisk ohälsa, samt vilka utmaningar de yrkesverksamma möter i arbetet. För att uppnå syftet har en kvalitativ metod använts där datainsamling utgjorts av semistrukturerade intervjuer med tre yrkesverksamma personer från respektive verksamhet. Kvalitativ innehållsanalys har därefter använts för att kunna strukturera och tolka det insamlade materialet. Resultatet visade att det finns en tydlig uppdelning mellan de båda verksamheterna avseende arbetsuppgifter och ansvar. Psykiatrin arbetar med psykologisk behandling medan socialtjänstens arbete är inriktad på missbruksproblematik. Således kräver arbetet med samsjuklighet att de båda verksamheterna samverkar med varandra. Resultatet visade också att samverkan inte fungerar bra. Den största utmaningen är, enligt intervjupersonerna, att socialtjänsten får bära det största ansvaret för att kunna skapa en välfungerande samverkan. För att ytterligare förstå resultatet har systemteori tillämpats i analysavsnittet. Det systemteoretiska greppet om studien visar att socialtjänsten och psykiatrin kan förstås som delsystem av det mer övergripande välfärdssystemet. Den icke-fungerande samverkan gör att syftet med välfärdssystemet inte uppnås, eftersom de hjälpsökande människorna inte får tillgång till relevanta insatser.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to survey the work with comorbidity (mental illness and drug addiction), and to reach the purpose of this study a qualitative method was used. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with professionals from the social service and the psychiatric care, six in total, three from each organization. These interviews formed the basis of this study. A content analysis was applied to analyse the gathered empirical data. The result showed that there is a distinct division between the two organizations regarding duties and responsibility concerning people with comorbidity. The psychiatric care works with psychological treatment for their patients while the social service’s mission is to treat their clients’ drug addiction. According to these facts the result indicated that these two parties have to collaborate to be able to work with comorbidity. It also showed that collaboration between these two is not well-functioning. According to the study’s informants, the largest responsibility in order to accomplish a well-functioning collaboration concerning people with comorbidity lies with the social service. The result has been analysed with systems theory in order to obtain a more profound understanding. This analysis implied that the social service and the psychiatric care are two subsystems in a lager context, the welfare system. When the collaboration is not well-functioning the mission of the welfare system does not get fulfilled, because the people with comorbidity do not receive appropriate interventions.
