Abstract [en]

This study explored the experiences and perceptions of professional service providers offering services to women with disabilities exposed to intimate partner violence (IPV). Eighteen in-depth interviews were conducted with service providers working in health care, social work, the police, women’s shelters, and the Centre for Violence Against Women. Our findings suggest that providing adequate IPV services to women with disabilities requires coordination and collaboration. IPV services were organized around five overarching themes: finding services; assessing the risk; identification; protection and care; and becoming independent. This approach was helpful for women who faced disability-related challenges in accessing IPV services.

Abstract [en]

Background: Living in the digital era, young adults with intellectual disabilities use diverse digital products, the Internet, and social media in their daily lives. However, they may need support in digital undertakings as in other aspects of life. In a disability service context, staff are primary support providers but are restricted and guided by organisational goals and strategies. Previous research has shown that staff have dual roles as support providers and executors of organisational ambitions. This study analyses the motivations and prerequisites, as well as the obstacles to the implementation of digitalisation at a strategic level of disability services.

Method: Qualitative semi-structured interviews were conducted with public officials and municipal politicians responsible for providing disability services. A thematic analysis was performed using a constructionist perspective.

Findings: Three themes were identified: Intertwined ideals of digital infrastructures in disability contexts, culture of vertical governance, and developing competencies. These themes can be seen as pillars of the digitalisation of digital services at the organisation's strategic level. In addition to shedding light on specific issues, these themes reveal underlying issues relating to conceptions of support practices and organisational culture.

Conclusion: Digitalisation is motivated by a desire to preserve the organisation's legitimacy and be a relevant service provider. Digital infrastructure is required for digitalisation but is lacking because of intertwined legal and moral issues. Digitalisation also appears to be hindered by organisational structures and organisational culture, whose impact greatly outweighs that of digital issues.

Abstract [en]

Information and communication technology (ICT) and digital media are less accessible for persons with intellectual disability (ID) but are important for citizenship. The aim was to conceptualize officials understanding of ICT usage among people with ID, and to analyze the possible influence of this understanding on the provision of services for people with ID. A qualitative study was conducted, using semi-structured interviews with municipal officials and politicians in the disability service area. Thematic analyses were conducted. ICT use is understood as an arena for democratization. Findings also illustrate the tension between integrity and protection as well as between legal and moral aspects of digital transformation in service provision. This understanding of digitalization is permeated by an individualized approach but conditioned by organizational issues. Disability services can be understood as undergoing digital transformation where regulative and normative elements in this area need to be harmonized to facilitate digitalization successfully.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a meta-analysis, drawing exclusively on qualitative research (n = 38), which contributes to findings on mental health service user experiences of received provisions and/or encounters in contemporary social and mental health services in the Nordic countries. The main objective is to identify facilitators of, and barriers to, various notions of service user involvement. Our findings provide empirical evidence regarding service users’ experiences of participation in their encounters with mental health services. We identified two overarching themes, professional relations and the regulative framework and current rule and norm system, in the reviewed literature concerning facilitators and hindrances of user involvement in mental health services. By including the interrelated policy concept of ‘active citizenship’ and theoretical concept of ‘epistemic (in)justice’ in the analyses, the results provide foundations for broader exploration and problematization of the policy ideals of what we call ‘epistemic citizenship’ and contemporary practices in Nordic mental health organizations. Our conclusions include suggestions that linking micro-level experiences to organizational macro-level circumstances opens up avenues for further research on service user involvement.

Abstract [en]

It is common knowledge In the Nordic countries, that user involvement is hailed as part of a larger societal development for democratizing and improving social work practices as well as challenging the history of paternalism against people in need of mental health services. The reasons for user-involving practices are abundant; it corresponds to democratic ideals, for redistributing power in professional relations, making welfare services more efficient, and making professional relations more reciprocal, etc. However, less is known about ways in which to implement inclusive practices and how to assess and value the effects and outcomes of different programs and initiatives with user-involving ambitions. 

This presentation provides fresh findings on these issues in the Nordic countries, drawing from empirical findings in a compilation of knowledge (published in 2022) and a meta-analysis (published in 2023). In detail, the presentation provides answers to Nordic experiences of a) methods used to study user involvement, b) effects and outcomes of user-involving strategies, and c) how they relate to the overarching ambitions of high-quality services in mental health organizations in the Nordic countries. The presentation also provides important insights into factors that differentiate positive/promoting and negative/restrictive user experiences of participation, involvement, and prerequisites for being seen as an epistemic citizen. Finally, the presentation suggests different ways in which these results are important to acknowledge for further empirical research and development of user involvement in the Nordic countries.

Abstract [en]

User participation is part of a larger societal development and an attempt to democratize and improve welfare services, challenging the history of paternalism against people with disabilities. Many theoretical and ideological arguments for user involvement have been made and many definitions have been formulated. Some have stated that involvement from users is one of the main ingredients in efficient and effective help- and support services. Others have put forth the democratic aspects and consumer aspects of involving users. While the first aspect assumes that user participation leads to more democratic decision-making, the other advocate participation, and involvement to make various welfare sectors more efficient through consumer choice. Although many well-funded arguments exist for user involvement, there are still apparent challenges regarding how to implement user involving programs and assess and value the effects and outcomes of different programs and initiatives.  

In this session, I present main results from a recently published knowledge compilation dealing with motives, methods, and effects on user involvement in the Nordic countries. The analysis has focused on adult citizens in socially disadvantaged living conditions, including people with disabilities. The empirical data is Nordic research literature published between 2010 and 2022, as two questionnaires issued to researchers and experts on user involvement in the Nordic region. The presentation provides empirical evidence to a number of questions, such as: what are the primary methods used to study user involvement in the Nordic countries? What are the main differences and similarities between the Nordic countries?  What is evident in research about the effects and outcomes of user involvement strategies? What is the implication of these results for further development of user involvement in the Nordic countries?

Abstract [sv]

Den här kunskapssammanställningen undersöker brukarinflytande i Norden med särskilt fokus på utsatta vuxna inom det sociala området. I sammanställningen beskrivs metoder, effekter och erfarenheter, men också vilka kunskapsluckor som finns. Med utgångspunkt i forskning och utvärderingar om brukarinflytande på framför allt verksamhets- och systemnivå beskriver rapporten metoder och effekter för brukarinflytande, hur brukares kunskap tas tillvara, likheter och skillnader mellan de nordiska länderna samt vilka kunskapsluckor eller framtida utvecklingsområden som kan identifieras i den fortsatta utvecklingen av brukarinflytande i Norden. Data har samlats genom två digitala webbenkäter och en databassökning om nordisk forskning om brukarinflytande inom det sociala området. Med den utgångspunkten, och tillsammans med en granskning av ytterligare litteratur såsom utvärderingar, rapporter och handböcker, innehåller rapporten tre olika resultatkapitel. Det första redogör för policy och praktiska initiativ för stärkt brukarinflytande i de nordiska länderna. Det andra beskriver vilka metoder som används i studier av brukarinflytande och vilka målgrupper diverse satsningar på brukarinflytande fokuserar på. Det tredje kapitlet beskriver effekter av brukarinflytande, vilka huvudsakliga motiv till brukarinflytande som framträder i materialet och vilka kunskapsbidrag som framträder i den nordiska forskningen. I rapportens sista del identifieras kunskapsluckor och utvecklingsområden i det fortsatta arbetet för stärkt brukarinflytande i Norden.

Abstract [en]

Given the crucial role professionals play in maintaining the well-being of people with intellectual disabilities, their views on work satisfaction are relevant to analyse. A comparative analysis that takes into account the support provided in different welfare organisations can be of certain importance. The aim is to analyse the most common aspects of professional work satisfaction in work with people with intellectual disabilities in schools, healthcare, and social services, and to apply a comparative analysis of such experience taking into account respondents’ organisational affiliations. Data were collected using a digital questionnaire. Given the aim of the study, we drew on one open-ended question: ‘describe aspects of your work that are most satisfactory for you’. The analysis shows that respondents associated positive work experience with seven aspects: autonomy, competence, nature of the work, collaboration, trust and recognition, work environment, and service users. Findings indicate that discretion is an important facet of work satisfaction among respondents in all three organisations. Flexibility, autonomy in decision-making, the ability to plan and act within certain institutional and legal frameworks, and the ability to prioritise among daily work assignments are empirical examples of this.

Abstract [en]

This article examines the role of advocacy organizations and their use of social media within the field of disability in Sweden. How do the organizations negotiate digital media, and what are the (intentional or unintentional) consequences related to the use of social media? With focus on the representatives of advocacy organizations, we study how they reflect and act in order to balance various motives, and what challenges and ambiguities that arise. On one hand, there is a perceived need to be online and communicate with members and the surrounding society. On the other hand, digital communication induces a divide between those who have the resources to take part in such communication, and those who do not – in terms of digital competence, economy, age, cognitive abilities, technical equipment and digital connection. The heterogeneity of resources and target groups inevitably challenges both the ideals of inclusion and intentions of advocacy organizations.
