Task shift and Cooperation in Everyday Rehabilitation


Task shift and cooperation in everyday rehabilitation Overall aims for the study: To describe and understand how task shift and cooperation among health professionals (skilled and unskilled) and the users of everyday rehabilitation take place. To describe the negotiation process resulting in everyday life benefits. Background: Demographic changes, age carrying capacity of the population and the expected shortage of certain professions, have given the acceleration of new professional practices within health services in the municipalities. Everyday rehabilitation or reablement is considered an appropriate approach to meet the challenges. Increasing amount of care and rehabilitation in the user’s home environment, means that everyday life becomes a more important arena for cooperation, and should be subject to further studies. Field task shift is little explored in Norway. The study will especially look for the challenges and dilemmas in cross professional procedures using Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM), since this OT assessment tool seems to be popular and often used by other work groups(Law and Kjeken et al 2015) Method: A descriptive and qualitative approach, through focus group-interviews with skilled, unskilled and professionals, and thereafter observation of teamwork together with users and professionals, have been chosen to illustrate and understand this new constellations and organizational forms. Conclusion: Tentative conclusions after focus group interviews (n = 4) give notions about having a closer look at; • the gaps between professional and personal/users preferences and aims o exercise versus activity/occupation • user and next of kin involvement o expectations of caring and helping • motivation • assessing • teamwork and supervision Application to practice: More widely and precisely be aware of and bring into discussion how tasks, task shift and interaction are experienced for the user and for professionals, and what the changes entail for professional thinking in everyday rehabilitation.
