In hospitals, several professions need to collaborate to be able to offer patients the best care possible. The aim of this study was therefore to examine and analyse counselors experiences of interprofessional collaboration on hospital clinics within Skånes University Hospital (SUS). The study consists of qualitative semi-structured interviews of four hospital social workers. The interviewees were contacted and selected with the help of an employee of the organisation, who had a good overview of the social work at the hospital. The interview questions are about interprofessional collaboration, power, status and hierarchy. The interviewees described the collaboration at their hospital clinics and presented that for instance communication face to face and getting to know each other on a personal and professional basis facilitates the interprofessional collaboration, while misunderstanding and lack of interprofessional meetings can prevent the collaboration. The counselors stated that their status and power are relatively high and that they are positioned fairly high in the hospital hierarchy, although they mean that it’s hard to compare themselves to the other professions because of the differences in the work assignments.
