This essay’s focus lies on the collaboration that takes place in hospitals and called a care-plan (vårdplanering) between the two organisations: Health-care (landsting) and social-care (kommun). According to the Swedish-law are these organizations responsible for the care of elderly individuals in Sweden. The aim of this essay has been to study closely this collaboration in order to see which partner has the most influencing power.
This essay is of a qualitative character, which means that the results that are presented are based on six individual interviews with employees from the two organizations. The employees chosen for this essay all have job experiences from the collaboration that takes place during care-plans in hospitals.
One of the main results of this essay has been that the two organizations are not equal collaboration-partners. All the interviewed individuals talked highly about the importance of collaboration while in reality they end up in an subliminal battle against each other. The main conclusion of this essay is that the focus of a care-plan meeting appears to be on gaining the most power, in order to influence the outcome of a care-plan, rather than giving priority to the elderly individual’s needs and concerns.
