Abstract

The responsibilities for delivery of care in Sweden is divided between the regions and the municipalities. The regions run the hospitals and the primary care centres (PCCs) whereas the municipalities are responsible for homecare nursing and nursing homes. The homecare nurses and the doctors they need to seek advice from, thus belong to different organizations/contexts. As more patients with multi- and long-term illnesses are taken care of in their homes the workload of the homecare nurses has increased. A new healthcare agreement has thus been signed between a region in South Sweden and its municipalities. The healthcare agreement states that doctors from the PCCs are to form mobile teams together with the homecare nurses. This paper... (More)

The responsibilities for delivery of care in Sweden is divided between the regions and the municipalities. The regions run the hospitals and the primary care centres (PCCs) whereas the municipalities are responsible for homecare nursing and nursing homes. The homecare nurses and the doctors they need to seek advice from, thus belong to different organizations/contexts. As more patients with multi- and long-term illnesses are taken care of in their homes the workload of the homecare nurses has increased. A new healthcare agreement has thus been signed between a region in South Sweden and its municipalities. The healthcare agreement states that doctors from the PCCs are to form mobile teams together with the homecare nurses. This paper reports from a pre-study investigating how the agreement, in terms of translation sociology, is interpreted in four of the municipalities. The aim of the research project as a whole is to develop digital support systems for the mobile teams.
