Abstract [sv]

Studien har gjorts mot bakgrund av den pågående diskussionen gällande införandet av sprutbytesverksamhet i Jönköpings län och vill till den diskussionen tillföra de skilda erfarenheterna som finns i fyra olika existerande sprutbytesprogrammen i Sverige, att jämföra likheter och skillnader i praxis och att relatera dessa erfarenheter till deras mål och resurser. Trots att lagen om sprutbyte trädde i kraft år 2006 är sprutbyte fortfarande ett kontroversiellt ämne i Sverige. I denna omtvistade form av preventiv verksamhet finns det dock en viktig del som gör ämnet mer relevant och det är de goda, sociala bieffekter som programmen medför. Dessa omnämns i studien som paramedicinsk vård. Metoden som ligger till grund för studien är kvalitativa, semistrukturerade intervjuer. Materialet har sedan analyserats för betydelsen av sitt innehåll och genom organisationsteori. Utgångspunkten är avhandlingar, vetenskapliga artiklar och litteratur i ämnet sprutbyte. Vid sprutbytesprogrammen i Sverige skiljer sig uppfattningarna åt gällande behovet och implementeringen av den paramedicinska vården i verksamheten. Likaså går åsikterna isär mellan de forskare, politiker och professionellt verksamma som intervjuats. En gemensam nämnare är dock synen på paramedicin i stort som något betydelsefullt för personer i aktivt missbruk, oavsett om det är landstinget eller socialtjänsten som bedriver den. Studiens konklusion blir således att denna form av verksamhet kräver ett holistiskt perspektiv av den vård som ska bedrivas. Samarbete utanför landstingens och kommunens gränser verkar gynnande. Landstinget har större inflytande än kommunen men kommunen har å andra sidan större resurser när det gäller paramedicinska vårdinsatser. I de landsting där eventuella sprutbytesverksamheter diskuteras kan studien ge exempel på goda respektive mindre goda paramedicinska insatser vid de program som idag är verksamma.

Abstract [en]

In light of the ongoing discussion regarding the possible introduction of needle exchange programs in Jönköping county, this study aims to compare similarities and differences in practice at four different needle exchange programs in Sweden and to relate these experiences to their objectives and resources. Despite the fact that the law of needle exchange entered into force 2006, needle exchange programs are still a controversial subject of discussion in Sweden. In this contested form of infection care there is an important part though which makes the subject more legitimate. That is the positive social side effects which come as a result of the programs. These effects are mentioned in the study as paramedic care. The method underlying the study is qualitative, semi structured interviews. The material has been analyzed for the relevance of its content and also through organization theory. The starting point is theses, scientific articles and literature on the subject of needle exchange. At the needle exchange programs in Sweden the perceptions regarding the need for and the implementation of paramedical care differs as well as the views of researchers, politicians and professionally active that we interviewed on the subject. A common denominator, however, is the perception of paramedical care at large as something significant for people in active addiction, whether it is the country council or the social services that engaged in it. The conclusion of the study is thus that this form of activities requires a holistic perspective of the care that should be conducted. Cooperation outside the county and municipal boundaries seems favorable. The county councils have more influence than the municipalities but the municipalities on the other hand have greater resources in terms of paramedical care efforts. In the county councils where any needle exchange activities are up for discussion this study could give examples on favorable and less favorable paramedical activities at programs that are currently active.
