Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate the background to the introducing of professional certification among medical health care social workers and to investigate how social workers and union representatives discusses about the meaning of the certificate. As for today hospital social workers are the only profession in the health care context who are not authorized which sometimes affects them and their profession in a negative way in their daily work. Lawmakers finds lack of authorization a risk factor for the patient safety. Three social workers and two union representatives have been interviewed and the result has been analyzed with professional theory and related concepts. The informants believes that the authorization will increase the power of the social workers in the medical context including having stronger autonomy and higher status. But the study have also discovered some eventual negative consequences such as hierarchization among social workers and challenges attracting enough students to study another year if higher salary will not be guaranteed.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med uppsatsen var att undersöka bakgrunden till beslutet att införa yrkeslegitimation för kuratorer inom hälso- och sjukvård samt att undersöka hur kuratorer och fackliga representanter resonerar kring innebörden av denna yrkeslegitimation. Kuratorerna är idag den enda yrkesgruppen inom hälso- och sjukvård som saknar legitimation vilket emellanåt påverkar kuratorerna i sin profession negativt i deras dagliga arbete. Beslutsfattare menar att avsaknad av legitimation utgör en patientsäkerhetsrisk. Tre kuratorer och två fackföreningsrepresentanter har intervjuats och resultatet har analyserats utifrån professionsteori och tillhörande begreppsapparat. Informanterna tror att legitimation kommer att ge gruppen ökade befogenheter, högre autonomi och status men studiens resultat har även visat att yrkeslegitimation kan innebära eventuella negativa konsekvenser som hierarkisering inom socionomgruppen och kompetensförsörjningsproblem i form av att få studenter att studera ett extra år om detta inte lönar sig ekonomiskt.
