Abstract [sv]

Denna studie behandlar mellanchefer inom vården i den offentliga sektorns arbetssituation. Mellanchefer inom vården innehar ofta en roll som sjuksköterska och en roll som avdelningschef. Den dubbla rollen kan vara problematisk då man ska tillgodose den etik och moral som professionen innebär samtidigt som resultat ska levereras till verksamheten. Syftet med studien var att söka ökad förståelse för om det finns en konflikt mellan profession och verksamhetskrav samt hur denna konflikt uppstår. Intentionen var också att undersöka om det kan leder till brott mot Det psykologiska kontraktet.

Resultatet visade att professionen som sjuksköterska kommer i konflikt med verksamhetskraven och att detta kan leda till brott mot Det psykologiska kontraktet. Av studien framgick även att konflikt kan uppstå mellan de olika professionerna på sjukhusen, framförallt mellan sjuksköterskor och läkare. Även politisk påverkan har en effekt på verksamheterna dock leder det troligen inte till upplevt brott mot Det psykologiska kontraktet.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to seek greater understanding of middle managers in public sector work situation. This is by studying whether there is a conflict between their profession and business requirements and how this conflict can arise. The intention was also to investigate whether or not this could lead to violations of the psychological contract.

The study deals with middle managers in healthcare that often has a role as a nurse and a role as the manager. The dual role can be problematic as they are aimed to satisfy the ethics and morals that the profession means and at the same time deliverer result to the business.

The results showed that the profession as a nurse comes into conflict with the business requirements and that this may lead to violations of the psychological contract. The study also showed that the conflict may occur between the different professions in hospitals, particularly between nurses and doctors. Also the political influence has an effect on operations; however this does not lead to violations of the psychological contract.
