    Från policy till praktik: en studie om organisering inom LSS-området2019Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to explore what happens when the Swedish disability policy (LSS) is translated into practice. The study focuses on the organizing that takes place at a local, municipal level. It uses a qualitative approach with a mix of qualitative methods and is actively involving practitioners in the co-­‐ production of empirical data. Drawing on Actor-­‐network theory (ANT) as a conceptual framework, the analysis focuses on how actors and actants are assembled in networks. A detailed map is developed, comprising relations, formations and tensions that emerges from the efforts of translating policy into practice, Results identify the function of front-­‐line managers as a central and overloaded hub. It shows how unforeseen, unintended and undesirable effects arise as a result of both planned action programs and recurrent, not anticipated events. An ongoing professionalization, is described as a result of internal organizational conditions, rather than policy implementation or the self-­‐ interest of professions. The study illustrates the complexity and challenges of welfare organizations and the results can be used for further organizational studies as well as serve as a roadmap for organizational development within disability services.

    Practise Leadership in Practise2019In: Journal of Intellectual Disability Research, ISSN 0964-2633, E-ISSN 1365-2788, Vol. 63, no 7, p. 725-725Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: Research on implementation of disability policy has to a high degree focused on policy issues and evaluating the outcome. This ongoing study focuses on organisational aspects and uses actor‐network theory (ANT) as the theoretical perspective. Methods: By teaming up with the municipal disability services in the City of Malmo, results from the study will be supplemented and adapted for implementation. By semi‐structured interviews with key persons and quantitative human resources data, this follow up study aims to map out the occurrence of functions, roles and elements associated to the concept of Practice Leadership. Results: Results from the main ANT‐study, point out the significance of how person‐centred support is governed and organised, as well as the importance of the role of front‐line managers. Further, the organising shows an arbitrary element of self‐organising, and at the same time, innovative and knowledge‐driven efforts to shape new organisational structures. One conclusion is that further efforts of implementation could benefit from elaborating current research on Practice Leadership. Implications: A strategic and long‐term collaboration between service providers, researchers and educational institutions, creates a common ground for organisational structures that are anchored and supported by the educational system. This lays a foundation for a sustainable development regarding the professionalisation of disability services.

    Challenges for Group Homes in Sweden: Frontline Practice Leadership and Ethical Dilemmas2023Conference paper (Refereed)
    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.

    En modell för att leda brukarnära arbete i funktionshinderverksamheter: en förstudie2022Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: This study piloted an international, research-based training resourceon Frontline Practice Leadership (FPL). The aim was to examine whether this resource can be adapted and used by Swedish disability services and thus contribute to strengthening employees in occupational roles responsible for Practice Leadership.

    Method: Six service pedagogues and their managers (12 participants in total) participated in a pilot study to review the training resource. Participants provided their reflections on the training and the model for FPL.

    Results: Participants found the resource to be informative and useful, and potentially beneficial to staff who work in Swedish disability services. The study identified the need to consider how FPL will be implemented in the existing organizational structure in Swedish disability services.

    Implications: The study raises issues related to implementation of new working methods and emphasizes the significance of a comprehensive working model for person-centred support. Furthermore, the concept of quality of life, which is central in FPL, entails implications that need to be discussed in relationto a Swedish context. Finally, the emergence of occupational roles in the interface between management and practice calls for new support structures regarding education and competence development.
