Social worker´s assessment of the security in the elderly (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur biståndshandläggare förhåller sig till ansökningar i trygghetsfrämjande syfte för att därigenom öka förståelsen för deras situation i beslutsfattningsprocesssen. Åtta intervjuer med åtta informanter, varav 7 kvinnor och en man, har genomförts med en kvalitativ ansats. Resultatet visade att biståndshandläggarens arbetssituation påverkas av olika faktorer som leder till ett ökat eller minskat handlingsutrymme. Faktorer är: organisationens struktur, riktlinjer och handlingsstrategier. Resultatet visade även att begreppet trygghet uppfattas olika mellan biståndshandläggarna på grund av att Sociatjänstlagen är en målinriktad ramlag. Vidare visade resultatet att trygghet är en del i arbetet fast det benämns inte alltid med ordet trygghet. 

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was researching social workers’ attitudes towards applications having the purpose of safety promotion in order to increase the understanding of their position within the decision making process. Eight interviews with eight informers, whereof seven women and one man, were conducted using a qualitative approach. The result showed that the work situation of the social worker are affected by different aspects which leads to either an increased or a decreased discretion. The following factors are evident: the structure of the organization, guidelines and action strategies. The result also showed that the concept of safety is perceived differently between the social workers because the Social Services Act is a goal-oriented frame law. Furthermore, the result showed that safety is a part of the work even though the word safety is not always used.
