Authors: Hildingsson, Emelie & Magnusson, JessicaSupervisor: Hjorth Aronsson, Christina

 

Essay topic related to stress and stress management in the geriatric care. The purpose of this study is to ascertain how the unit managers, within care of elderly, in their role as manager and leader handle possible stress reactions among its nursing staff. Our purpose will generate the following issues;         

How does the employer discover stress among the employees?        

In what way is the stress taken care of among the geriatric care staff?

What opportunities are there to prevent stress?

The study is based on a qualitative research method. As a data collection method we've used semi-structured interviews and we have implemented them in five female heads in a medium-sized municipality in Sweden. We have used out of an interview guide where we divided the issues into three different themes; observation phase, taking care of phase and the possibility of prevention. In the analytical part, we have structured and categorized the material under each theme, and used us to further sub-headings to create a transparency. In addition to previous research, the theories about stress, work-related stress and stress from a gender perspective has been used as a basis for analysis of interview material. Our conclusion after study is that the unit managers in home care have a systematic approach for working with the environment in the workplace. Because there is a standing item on workplace meetings where the work is discussed it allows the heads of units to identify stress in the staff group. The action taken when the stress revealed by the Working Group is primarily supported calls from occupational health services, but also support from the Head of Unit in the form of adjustment of duties. There is no clear stress prevention in the workplace, but health and wellness, can be interpreted as a prevention effort. Lack of resources out as an explanation for the heads of units cannot handle the work-related stress in an ideal way.
