Abstract [en]

This qualitative research overview consists of the State of knowledge about people with dual diagnosis. The focus is on what Psychiatry reform meant for people with mental disabilities. Author`s ambition has been to consolidate current understanding in the problem area. The purpose of the paper is to make an analysis of the State of knowledge concerning individuals within psychiatry with simultaneously addiction problems. The issues that will be processed are: what it means to live with dual diagnosis, how to coordinate cooperation efforts, and what is the evidence-based mode. Authors process the empirical material from both an expert and an organizational perspective. The empirical material consists of fifteen articles written by expertise authors in the area. The material has been processed and compiled by hermeneutic method. Results from the empirical material show a consensus regarding the State of knowledge among staff concerning individuals with dual diagnosis, gaps between, the collaborative efforts and underdeveloped evidence-based practices. In the analysis, the theory of KASAM was used to highlight the result from a salutogenic perspective. The authors of the paper make the following conclusion, that Psychiatry reform meant both positive and negative changes for persons with mental disabilities
