In health care there exists a medical culture that is based on proven experience and science. Hospitals are dominated by personnel who have a medical background and thus have a medical focus in their profession. In the health care context the hospital social worker also works. Despite that the hospital social worker has existed in health care for about a century, the role of the hospital social worker is not uncontested.

In health care there exists a medical culture that is based on proven experience and science. Hospitals are dominated by personnel who have a medical background and thus have a medical focus in their profession. In the health care context the hospital social worker also works. Despite that the hospital social worker has existed in health care for about a century, the role of the hospital social worker is not uncontested. Both national and international research describe the social worker's role in health care as diffuse and difficult to define. This paper focuses on the hospital social worker conditions for interprofessional collaboration with the more medically oriented professions, doctors, nurses and assistant nurses. Previous research shows that successful interprofessional cooperation cannot take place unless the various professional groups interacting knowledge contribution is valued equally. A survey form was distributed to a selected clinic at a hospital in a midsize city in Sweden (n = 88) to investigate how the social worker´s psychosocial perspective are implemented and integrated as the hospital social worker interacts with the more medically oriented professions, doctors, nurses and assistant nurses. The collected empirical data were analyzed based on collaboration theory, role theory and profession theory. Our essay has revealed trends that has been partially in similar directions that previous research regarding the unclear role of the hospital social worker. Our general response picture regarding the professional role of the hospital social worker in the clinic where the study took place, however, was more positive than previous research has shown. Overall, it seems that the medical professions have good insight into the social worker´s psychosocial perspective and the cooperating professions in the clinic usually seem to work based on common objectives. However, there are certain trends that indicate that the social worker´s perspective can become even clearer. (Less)
