Abstract [en]

This thesis aims to explore how medical social workers/counselors perform their work

with people during crisis and how they accumulate and practice scientific crisis

knowledge. This study is an empirical research paper based on qualitative interviews

conducted with eight medical social workers. The data was analysed with Kvales

model for categorization, which constitutes the basis of the research. The results of

the research was then analysed with the use of Cullbergs crisis theory and a model of

evidence based practice which is described by Topor and Denhov. The results show

that the medical social workers practice the evidence based practice model, described

by Topor and Denhov, in combination with Cullbergs crisis theory. The medical

social workers acknowledged the individuals’ experiences in their work as well as

their own experiences and scientific knowledge. Our conclusion is that the practice of

medical social workers/counselors is varying, depending on the varying needs of the

individuals. The social workers/counselor accumulates most knowledge through their

own and the individuals’ experiences, but also from scientific crisis evidence.
