IBIC - A qualitative study about care managers perspective on the work with IBIC
The aim of this study was to describe and analyze care managers perspective on the working model IBIC in eldercare, launched by Socialstyrelsen, in relation to di- scretion and legal certanity. The working model IBIC is a tool for care managers that aims to meet the individual needs. This purpose was explored in qualitative, semi structured interviews with six care managers in eldercare. The material was analyzed using Michael Lipsky’s theory of street-level bureaucracy and Aleksander Pecznik’s theory absolut legal certanity. The conclusion of this study was that the care managers had a positive view about the working model IBIC due to its focus on the elderly's needs. But, the care managers felt limited in their work with IBIC because of the fact that they still needed to adapt to the performers in eldercare. Furthermore this study has shown that care managers experienced that they possess discretion. Some of them described that their discretion had not been affected neit- her positive nor negative by IBIC while others argue that it had increased. Another conclusion based on the empirical material of this study was that the care managers had different opinions about the legal certainty in relation to IBIC. Three of the care managers argued that the legal certanity had not been affected neither positive nor negative by IBIC. The other three care managers considered that there is a possibi- lity that IBIC can contribute to increased legal certainty. (Less)
