Abstract [en]

Introduction:

Development processes in health care often narrowly focuses on more efficient work processes even though health care employees’ report an increased strained working environment. Furthermore, Occupational Health Services (OHS) in Sweden have been criticized for not contributing to improved organizational health and for not always having competence on leadership and health. In this context an ongoing research project has developed and implemented OHS-driven leadership interventions on sustainable leadership in health care. The interventions focused on supporting managers to integrate health promoting processes into ongoing quality developments at their workplaces.

Aim:

To explore experiences of the implementation of g different kind of OHS-driven methods for sustainable leadership within health care. The aim includes analyzing key actors’ and managers’ experiences of the content and different forms of intervention methods, as well conditions important for a successful implementation.

Method:

Researches developed in a first step a working material on sustainable leadership as well as five different intervention methods including web-based methods in collaboration with practitioners. Represents from OHS were given education on leading interventions based on the developed material. In a second step leadership interventions were implemented at 32 different workplaces within health and elderly care. Qualitative interviews with key actors and managers were performed for studying the implementation process. Latent and manifest content analysis was applied.

Results and Conclusions:

A dedicated and functional collaboration between OHS and Human Resources, as well as with the researchers, was one important success factor for the implementation of the interventions. Support from and collaboration between researchers and different strategic key actors within the participating health care organizations was further more critical for succeeding with the interventions. Web-based interventions required more engaged managers compared to interventions with physical meetings. In-depth results comparing the implementation of different interventions methods in the different organizational context will be presented at the conference.
