The national core values in practice : A qualitative study based on managersdescriptions of the implementation process at residential homes for elderly (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to increase the knowledge of the implementation process of the national core value at residential homes for the elderly, based on manager’s descriptions. The national core values were introduced in the Social Service Act (SFS 2001:453) 2011 with the aim to increase the quality in the elderly care. According to previous research, leadership has a major impact on the implementation of the national core values; therefore the study takes its outset from the managers perspective. The study is designed as a case study where qualitative interviews are used as a method. Through semi-structured interviews, managers at residential homes for elder have been interviewed. The collected material from the interviews has been analyzed based on theories of implementation and leadership. The result shows that the managers use different methods to implement the national core value in their operations and that different factors affect the implementation process. The factors that arise are mainly the manager, the staff’s attitude and resources. The result shows that managers are important in the implementation process, it is about the meaning that the managers gives the national core value and that the managers can be seen to take an active or a passive role in the implementation process. The managers are requesting education about the national core values, despite the government’s formulated guidance materials and education. The result shows that the managers don’t use these instruments, witch means that the managers are asking for something that already exists. In order for the operations to work in accordance with the national core values, the result shows that both managers and employees requires to provide the right conditions in terms of resources.
