Collaboration- Common aims with care recipients in focus. : A qualitative study of the collaboration between assistance administrators and unit managers in elderly care. (English)
The study is about the collaboration between assistance administrators and unit managers. The aim of the study was to understand the assistance administrators and unit managers interpretation of the concept of collaboration, as well as their experience of collaboration in the practical work in elderly care in the common work around care recipients in the evaluation and execution of home help services.
The analyse of the interview material was conducted by using collaboration and New Public Management (NPM). We used the qualitative method in our study with semi-structured questions. The interviews were transcribed, coded and thematised based on our questions. When interpreting the interviews we used the hermeneutic circle in which we analyzed the study's various parts and then attached them to the collaboration, NPM and also to earlier research and to each other.
The conclusions that emerged raises the important factors for collaboration and could be linked to collaboration, NPM and previous research. Our discussion highlights how the professions interpret the concept of collaboration and what the conditions are that enable collaboration but also what kind of barriers that restrict a well-functioning collaboration.
