Abstract [en]

Introduction:

Worldwide, educational interventions are carried out continuously as an ongoing activity linked to competence provision and development of the organization. In follow-up and evaluation of the interventions, the result, i.e., the effect of the intervention, has usually been the main concern whereas the mechanism behind the operation of the intervention is often obscured. The aim of this evaluation study is to contribute knowledge to the field of intervention research regarding aspects that should be considered in designing a learning-supportive educational intervention. Such knowledge would increase the likelihood that experiences generated from the intervention are implemented in the daily undertaking.

Accordingly, knowledge within intervention research increased significantly since the field expanded rapidly in the past decade. However, critical voices have been raised regarding aspects that are often overlooked in the field and highlighted the tendency that intervention studies frequently focus on the meth ods used to test the intervention whereas the rigor of intervention development and design has not received the attention it deserves. When it comes to educational intervention, concerning the aforementioned viewpoint, the process of learning cannot be lef t out. Studying learning processes and studies in designing education to support learners´ learning process is one of the main areas of interests in Work-Integrated Learning (WIL), particularly in the matter of learning in relation to working life, where the goal is to help the learners to integrate knowledge from education into practice. From the perspective of WIL, the social dimension has a certain influential effect on learning, which should be taken into account. A key word in this dimension is interaction. 

Nationally and internationally, within health care, recurring training, intraprofessional and/or interprofessional is given aiming to improve professionals' knowledge, attitudes, confidence levels and practices in care, in addition, to enhancing the collaboration to safeguard the patient safety and the quality-of-care. In Sweden, one area that has been debated and discussed regarding competence and knowledge scarcity among professionals and urged for measures to support competence provision, is health and social care for people with intellectual disabilities. In this context, the knowledge that can be applied in development and design of effective educational intervention appears to be almost zero. We are in the opinion that this knowledge gap should be a matter of concern and an area that needs to be explored.

Methods:

Data was gathered by way of semi structured interviews. Qualitative inductive analysis was applied using qualitative content analysis of Graneheim and Lundman.Totally, 24 individual interviews were conducted with the participating professionals. With guidance of the checklist COREQ, our ambition is to make the research process in this study as transparent as possible which further increases the replicability.

Results:

By exploring pa rticipants' experiences of the different components in an intervention with regard to their learning and knowledge development, both individual and of the group, in relation to their profession, finding answers to “what works” and “how it works”. Thereby gaining understanding and knowledge that can be applied in the design of future interventions and consequently, fill the existing knowledge gap.

Ethics:

Approval was obtained from the Swedish Ethical Review Authority, Dnr 35 517 for the project as whole. In addition, a supplemental application to phase two has made and is approved, on September 21, 2021, Dnr 2021-0460.
