Abstract [en]

The importance of inter-professional co-operation in the care of the elderly is stressed in the

legislation. The aim of the present study was to obtain insight in home-care caregivers’ and

district nurses’ experiences of co-operation in the care of patients suffering from dementia

living in their own home. This was done by carrying out interviews with four home-care

caregivers and three district nurses with a minimum of one-year experiences from home care

of patients suffering from dementia. The interviews were tape-recorded and transcribed. The

texts were analysed by means of qualitative content analysis. Well functioning co-operation

and not functioning co-operation emerged from the analysis. Well functioning co-operation

was characterised by trust, openness, honest communication, respect, shared responsibility,

and experiences of being a member of a working team. Organisational forms that allow space

for planned and regular staff-meetings and the continuity of caregivers promoted this kind of

co-operation. The not functioning co-operation was characterised by an absence of these

qualities. The co-operation was more focused on patients’ needs associated of caring for

other problems and diseases than on needs of care arising from dementia. Eventual

experiences of common care planning were mentioned. It was obvious that the different

professionals were dependent upon each other when it came contributing to patients´ wellbeeng

and comfort and by gainging satisfaction from their daily work.
