Abstract
The purpose of this study was to investigate and describe inter-professional team
collaboration inside Swedish family centres. When the idea for this study formed, the
impression could be gathered that family centres are depending on the professionals’
collaboration, since they are organisationally divided. One may perceive less positive

The purpose of this study was to investigate and describe inter-professional team

collaborating, and there are flaws in their work. The aim of this study was therefore to find
out how the professionals look at their collaboration, and how significant, from their
perspective, the family centres are for the families. This study has been concluded from two
specific family centres, in different municipalities in southern Sweden. Six people have been
interviewed, three from each centre who represent three different professions, which are
common in family centres. Moreover, this study consists of a qualitative method, and the
analysis is based on Bronfenbrenner´s theory “the ecology of human development”. The
professionals’ point out advantages with working in inter-professional teams inside the family
centre: for example the access to multiple professions under the same practice. Also, they
claim that it is easier to help families, since they have a broader competence. According to the
occupational workers at the centres in question, their work and efficiency become negatively
affected by the fact that they are organizationally divided. Furthermore, they state that they do
not get sufficient support from the management which also leads to complications within
collaboration. However, if they do get pass these obstacles which the collaborations contains,
the results have shown that the professionals at the family centre can attain a synergism. (Less)
