Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka och analysera undersköterskors erfarenheterav arbetsrelaterad stress på särskilt boende inom äldreomsorgen. Detta för att ökakunskapen om hur en god arbetsmiljö kan främjas och minska den arbetsrelateradestressen. Sex stycken semistrukturerade har genomförts, samtliga med undersköterskorinom äldreomsorgen i olika åldrar. Slutsatsen av studien resulterade i att denarbetsrelaterade stressen ofta har sin grund i ekonomiska förutsättningar ochbegränsningar. Den visar sig i form av mindre bra scheman och arbetstidsmodell, enofullständig personalbemanning och låga löner. Detta leder i sin tur till en högarbetsbelastning, låg motivation och inre stress. Det rådde delade meningar kringhuruvida verksamheten arbetar för att minska den arbetsrelaterade stressen.Sammantaget visade det sig att undersköterskorna inte upplever att detta görs på etttillräckligt aktivt och effektivt sätt. Ett bra socialt stöd av både kollegor och ledning vardet som undersköterskorna menade kan minska den arbetsrelaterade stressen. Demenade att stöd från kollegor och en ledning som lyssnar, visar sig och försöker finnalösningar kan skapa en bättre arbetsmiljö och därmed minska den arbetsrelateradestressen.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine and analyze the assistant nurses experiences ofwork-related stress in elderly care. The purpose was to increase the knowledge regardinghow to create a good working environment and reduce the work-related stress. The studyhas included six semi-structed interviewes with assistant nurses from a retirement homein Sweden. The conclusion of the study resulted in the work-related stress often beingbased on economic conditions, and emerging in the form of bad schedules and workingtime model, incomplete staffing and low salaries. This in turn leads to a high workload,low motivation and internal stress. There were shared opinions about whether theorganization is working to reduce work-related stress, but overall it showed that thenurses do not feel that this is done in a sufficiently good way. A good social supportfrom both colleagues and management was what the assistant nurses believe can reducethe work-related stress. They believe that support from colleagues, and a managementwho listens, shows up and tries to find solutions, can create a better workingenvironment and thereby reduce the work-related stress.
