Abstract

The aim of this study is to describe and analyse an elderly care team’s prerequisite to anchor a salutogenic perspective and approach in an elderly care team in Kalmar municipality. The study identifies factors that could impede or promote the anchoring and examine how the organisation aims to work in a single direction even if the multidisciplinary team processes a diversity of knowledge, education and abilities. The study is based on qualitative semi-structured interviews from representatives of all professions in the multidisciplinary team; social workers, paramedical professions, nurses and care-givers. The theoretical frame consisted of a translating perspective, leadership and ideas of interaction and power. The anchoring will be impact by the team’s member’s background and relation to the new method and organization. Therefore is it vital that the multidisciplinary care team strive to achieve a consensus, a consensus of how the salutogenic perspective and approach in different ways will affect their work.
