Abstract (Swedish)
Denna studie har utforskat chefers erfarenheter av att arbeta med suicidprevention ur ett ledarskapsperspektiv. Detta gjordes inom ramen för den psykiatriska slutenvården. Fem enhetschefer intervjuades med semistrukturerade intervjuer. Data analyserades med en förkortad version av grundad teori och guidades delvis av tidigare teori. Resultaten visade att enhetscheferna uppvisade olika ledarskapsbeteenden, inklusive laissez-faire, konventionellt
ledarskap och transformativt ledarskap. Enhetscheferna uppvisade en mångfald av attityder till ett nuvarande suicidpreventionsprogram som används inom Region Skåne, SuicidPrevention i Skånsk Specialistpsykiatri (SPiSS). Resultaten indikerade att chefernas sätt att hantera sina enheter efter ett... (More)

Enhetscheferna uppvisade en mångfald av attityder till ett nuvarande suicidpreventionsprogram som används inom Region Skåne, SuicidPrevention i Skånsk Specialistpsykiatri (SPiSS). Resultaten indikerade att chefernas sätt att hantera sina enheter efter ett suicid påverkades mycket av vad deras egna chefer hade gjort tidigare i liknande situationer, och vad de tyckte om detta. Slutsatsen var att transformativa
och konventionella ledarskapsbeteenden kan underlätta i arbetet med suicidprevention, och att det fanns en villighet, beredskap och potential bland enhetscheferna att förbättra sig inom de områdena. (Less)
Abstract
This study explores leaders’ experience of working with suicide prevention within a mental healthcare setting. Qualitative semi-structured interviews were conducted with five healthcare unit managers. The data was analyzed using a shortened version of grounded theory and partially with the support of pre-existing theories. The results showed that the managers displayed a wide variety of leadership behaviors, including laissez-faire, transactional and transformative. There was some variation among the managers’ attitudes towards a suicide prevention program currently being used in the regional mental health services, the Suicide Prevention in Scanian Specialized psychiatry (SPiSS). The results also indicated that the managers’ own ways of... (More)
This study explores leaders’ experience of working with suicide prevention within a mental healthcare setting. Qualitative semi-structured interviews were conducted with five healthcare unit managers. The data was analyzed using a shortened version of grounded theory and partially with the support of pre-existing theories. The results showed that the managers displayed a wide variety of leadership behaviors, including laissez-faire, transactional and transformative. There was some variation among the managers’ attitudes towards a suicide prevention program currently being used in the regional mental health services, the Suicide Prevention in Scanian Specialized psychiatry (SPiSS). The results also indicated that the managers’ own ways of managing their units with regard to suicides amongst patients was largely influenced by their individual experiences, in terms of how their previous manager acted in similar situations. The study showed that transformative and transactional leadership behaviors could aid in the work with suicide prevention, and that there was a readiness, willingness and potential among the managers to improve in these aspects, that could be capitalized upon by their organization.
