Abstract [sv]

Denna studie hade som syfte att kartlägga arbetsförhållanden som präglar boendestödjarnas arbetsupplevelse mest positivt. Ett annat syfte var att undersöka hur dessa arbetsförhållanden och deltagarnas självskattade hälsotillstånd var associerade med varandra. Resultaten jämfördes med sjukvårdspersonalens skattningar av samma variabler. I en kvantitativ tvärsnittsstudie användes Work Environment Measurement Subscale (WEMS) för att studera deltagarnas upplevelse av arbetsförhållanden och Salutogenic Health Investory Scale (SHIS) för mätning av självskattad hälsa. Fyrtiosju deltagare (58,6%) besvarade frågeformulären. Studien visar att Individuella inre upplevelser och tidsupplevelsen präglade deltagarnas arbetsupplevelse mest positivt.  Deras egenskattade hälsotillstånd hade starkast association med individuella inre förhållanden och stödjande arbetsförhållanden – samma faktorer som visade starkast samband med självskattad hälsa hos den jämförda gruppen av sjukvårdspersonal.  Upplevelsen av arbetsförhållanden visade sig i enkla sambandsanalyser vara en betydande faktor för positiv arbetsrelaterad hälsa. Resultaten ger intressant information om vilka arbetsförhållanden kan utgöra en positiv resurs och främja hälsa hos boendestödjare som är en relativt outforskad grupp inom arbetslivsforskning. Det behövs fördjupade analyser av sambanden mellan arbetsförhållanden och hälsoupplevelse.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate which work related factors are on a positive way the most characteristic for professionals working with community based social support directed to people with psychiatric disabilities. Another aim was to investigate how these working conditions were associated with self-rated health. The results were compared with results from an earlier study among healthcare occupationals in a hospital. The actual study was a qualitative cross-sectional study and used Work Environment Measurement Scale (WEMS) for investigating how the responders perceived their working conditions and Salutogenic Health Investory Scale (SHIS) for investigating their self-rated health. 47 responders (58,6%) answered the questionnaire. This study reveals that Individual inner experiences and time variable were the most positive characteristics. Self-rated health had the strongest association with individual inner experiences and supporting conditions. These were the same factors as for the health care professionals. Bivariate analysis revealed that the perceived working conditions had a considerable association with self-rated health. The results gave interesting information about which working conditions can promote positive health for this relatively unstudied group within occupational health. More complex analysis are needed to investigate the relationship between working conditions and self-rated health.
