Abstract [en]

In this paper, we explore the meaning of a specific follow-up system in different social work practices. We want to gain understanding about if the system can be an empowering tool for the practitioners to learn in their professional work. We interviewed four practitioners in different teams in order to find out how they describe the follow-up system as a tool, how they describe the knowledge they produce with help of it and what this means to them.

We have found that the practitioners describe the tool as an easy way to present results which are often described as 'facts'. The teams mainly use their specific follow-ups to present their work to others and in relation to that the tool serves a purpose for the team to gain credibility and be considered as professional. Their use can be understood in light of Evidence Based Practice and performance measurement as a discourse which sets limits and have effects on professional learning.
