Abstract [en]

The purpose of this research is to describe and gain a deeper insight in the dual role of the unit managers and their practical work situations in terms of applying and managing the work environment act as well as the social services act and possible oppositions between the two. The following research questions have been formulated for the subject: Which are the tasks and responsibilities of the unit managers and which factors determine these? What is the opinion of the unit managers, in terms of their dual role, towards the work environment act as well as the social services act? How is the opposition in the work environment act and the social services act dealt with by the unit managers? The research is of qualitative nature based on an interview study in which six unit managers within the geriatric care participated. In order to analyze the outcome a coding system was used, which resulted in the different categories and themes under which the outcome is presented. The outcome of the research indicates that the work environment act and the social services act are the base for the work of the unit managers, the laws permeate the whole unit as they are used as tools in order to reach solutions to oppositions. The unit managers consider the management of the two acts as a natural task in their work and they do not, in general, perceive the management of the acts as problematic. The possible problematic and difficult areas are the issues, which can be said to be in the grey zone between different acts, and it is the responsibility of the unit managers to solve these difficulties. The outcome of the research is strongly showing that the unit managers are focused on HOW the task should be performed and difficulties solved rather then WHAT they should be doing. Oppositions are solved through cooperation between the involved parties and it is the unit managers who have the coordinating role. The work environment act and the social services act are regarded equally important but nevertheless the latter is prioritized in practice since it is necessary to fulfill the needs of the users.
