When reality kicks in : employee stories about overdosing by residents of low threshold housing facilities in Oslo (English)
Abstract [no]

Målet med studien er å undersøke og beskrive ansatte i lavterskel botiltak sine erfaringer med overdoser hos beboere. Gjennom å belyse den ofte tause kunnskapen de ansatte i lavterskeltiltak har om hva som karakteriserer en overdosesituasjon, er studiens hensikt å systematisere og presentere denne erfaringskunnskapen, og gjennom det kunne bidra til en kvalitetsforbedring av den tjenesten som ytes til beboerne.Datainnsamlingen ble gjort gjennom fokusgruppeintervjuer med ansatte på lavterskel botiltak. Flere av kodegruppene som ble arbeidet frem i analysen var tema i begge fokusgruppene. Temaene var overganger, tilgang, å legge lokk på det vanskelige, å dempe kriser og relasjonen til andre. Disse ble igjen rekontekstualisert til «min virkelighet» og «den rusfrie virkelighet,» sammenfattet som «når virkeligheten strammer grepet.»Hovedfunnet i studien er at ansatte opplever at det er når virkeligheten strammet grepet, når rusens dempende slør ikke kan holde virkelighetens krav på avstand, at risikoen for overdoser oppstår. Dette taler for viktigheten av gode relasjoner til hjelpeapparatet, og at de ansatte kjenner til hva som beveger seg i den enkelte beboers liv.

Abstract [en]

Objectives: This study aimed to investigate and describe how employees working in low threshold housing facilities experience overdosing by facility residents. We also aimed to enlighten the often silent employee knowledge about the characteristics of an overdose situation, thus enhancing the quality of resident services.Materials and Methods: Data was collected through focus group interviews with employees working in low-threshold housing facilities. Many of the code terms identified through data analysis were common to both employees and residents (e.g., “transitions,” “access,” “putting a lid on the difficulties,” “attenuating crises,” and “relation to others.” We recontextualized these codes to “my reality” and “drug-free reality,” or “when reality kicks in.”Results: Our study determined that employees recognize the risk of overdosing as the point at which reality kicks in (i.e., when the attenuating effect of the drugs can no longer keep reality at distance).Conclusion: This study shows that employees are fully aware of residents’ lives and activities. Therefore, policies that maintain good employee relationships with and within the different social and health services may contribute significantly to overdose prevention.
