Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim of this study was to describe patients’ experiences of working in a training garden after neurological damage. Methods: The study employs a qualitative method with a phenomenographic approach. Interviews with 14 patients attending outpatient rehabilitation were conducted. The interview consisted of open-ended questions based on an interview guide covering: the activity, the training, its value and the environment. Results: The study revealed that activities in a training garden were experienced as beneficial, productive, voluntary and complicated. Certain conditions are necessary for performance and for drawing benefit from the activities. Conclusions: The results of this study may be of benefit in clinical work and may also apply to other groups of patients. Further research is needed on training gardens to enhance knowledge of suitable activities for different groups of patients to be used in the design of intervention programs.
