Abstract [en]

This poster will present our ongoing work with implementing an international, research based training resource on Frontline Practice Leadership (FPL) within group homes for people with intellectual disabilities and autism. The aim is to examine the context in which the work is performed, and whether FPL can be adapted and used by Swedish disability services and thus contribute to strengthening employees in occupational roles responsible for Practice Leadership. This special form of group home is controlled by the Swedish LSS law and that shall provide users with support and care based on their individual needs. LSS stipulate how users should be able to live like everyone else, promote equality and full participation in everyday life. At the same time, this form of accommodation sometimes creates ethical dilemmas when supporting the users' right to self-determination. This poster focusses on those ethical dilemmas, and what it means to work and manage operations within LSS housing and clarify the problems that exist around leadership when ethical dilemmas arise. Together with (+) 60 service pedagogue’s various empirical collections have been made: individual interviews, focus group interviews, observations and surveys. The poster will raise questions related to implementation of new working methods and emphasizes the significance of a comprehensive working model for person centered support. Furthermore, the concept of quality of life, which is central in FPL, entails in relation to a Swedish context. Finally, the occupational roles that is presented in this poster calls for new support structures regarding education and competence development.
