The dual role of the unit manager : The view and management of oppositions between the work environment act and social services act (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med undersökningen är att beskriva och öka insikten om enhetschefernas dubbla roll och deras arbetssituation då det gäller tillämpningen av arbetsmiljölagen och socialtjänstlagen och hur de hanterar denna dubbla roll.

De forskningsfrågor som vi har sökt svar till är:

• Vad styr och vad består enhetschefernas arbete av?

• Hur ser enhetscheferna på sin dubbla roll gentemot arbetsmiljölagen och socialtjänstlagen?

• Hur hanterar enhetscheferna motsättningar mellan arbetsmiljölagen och socialtjänstlagen?

Studien är en kvalitativ intervjustudie där sex enhetschefer inom äldreomsorgen har intervjuats. Analysen har skett genom kodning som gav de kategorier och teman som resultatet redovisas under.

Resultatet visar på att socialtjänstlagen och arbetsmiljölagen styr enhetschefernas arbete och att lagarna genomsyrar hela verksamheten då de används som ett medel och redskap för att nå en lösning på motsättningar. Hanteringen av socialtjänstlagen och arbetsmiljölagen ses av enhetscheferna och organisationen som en självklar del i arbetet och de upplever överlag inte hanteringen som ett problem. De svårigheter som uppkommer är i den gråzon som finns mellan olika lagar och dessa svårigheter har de ansvaret för att lösa. Resultatet visar tydligt på att enhetscheferna är fokuserade på HUR de ska genomföra uppdraget och lösa svårigheterna och inte på VAD de ska göra. Motsättningar löses genom ett samarbete mellan berörda parter och det är enhetscheferna som har den samordnande rollen. Socialtjänstlagen och arbetsmiljölagen ses som två jämbördiga lagar men socialtjänstlagen prioriteras i tillämpningen eftersom brukaren måste få sina behov tillgodosedda.

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.
