Abstract [en]

This is an examinaton of welfare officers and patients experiences of a course in mindfulnessbased stressreduction in primary care. The authors used a qualitative method and a phenomenological hermeneutics scientific philosophical position. The analys of the data appeared by using three theoretical perspectives; cognitive, coping and Antonovskys Sence of Coherence. The purpose was to get a deeper understanding of what mindfulness is, how a course in mindfulnessbased stressreduction can be arranged and how it is comprehended by the welfare officers and previous participators of the course. To get an opinion of the issue the authors wanted to know the welfare officers intention of the course, to which patients they provide the course, what the participators thought about their situation before and after the attendence and if they had assimilated the knowledge and if so how it was applicable. The results indicated that the welfare officers and the patients intentions of the course where incoherent. The welfare officers intention was to teach the patients a way of manner to incorporate and to handle stress and other disabilities. The patients intention was to get strategies to manage their stress and chronic pain. Their most customary strategies was breathing and consideration of their thoughts.
