Abstract [en]

Purpose: The aim of this study is to describe social insurance officers' experiences of a work rehabilitation process at a rehabilitation centre in the northern parts of Sweden. In Sweden the social insurance company has a key role to coordinate all efforts concerning work rehabilitation planning between all rehabilitation actors. Method: Ten social insurance officers at the social insurance company in a city in northern Sweden were interviewed using a narrative approach about their experiences of work rehabilitation processes in general. The interviews were analysed by qualitative content analysis with a focus on their experiences of goals, content and results of a work rehabilitation process. Results: The social insurance officers' experiences of how a work rehabilitation process could be improved were described in six categories; (1) Early identification of problems, needs and interventions (2) clear goal formulations, (3) a focus on psychosocial factors (4) a greater variety of possible interventions, (5) activating employers to a higher extent in work rehabilitation and (6) a closer cooperation and information exchange with other rehabilitation actors. Conclusions: It is possible to improve a work rehabilitation process by focusing on early identification of problems, needs and interventions, with a variety of interventions to choose between and with clear goal formulations and recognizing psychosocial factors in the process. To activate employers to a higher extent in work rehabilitation and to make the information exchange between rehabilitation actors more frequent may also improve work rehabilitation processes. © 2004 Taylor & Francis Ltd.
