"I am in love with my house" : a qualitative study of how unit managers within healthcare experience stress and mental health (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur kvinnliga enhetschefer inom vård och omsorg upplever att den dagliga stressen påverkar kvalitén i deras arbete samt hur detta påverkar det psykiska välmåendet och om det finns något stöd att få från kollegor. Studien bygger på semistrukturella intervjuer av sex stycken kvinnliga respondenter verksamma inom vård- och omsorg. I studiens resultat framkom att arbetsrelaterad stress är en konsekvens av belastade förhållanden i arbetet. Det finns främst två faktorer som kan leda till arbetsrelaterad stress, hög arbetsbelastning och det sociala samspelet på arbetet. Ytterligare en faktor som kan vara bidragande är att balansen mellan krav och resurser inte är fungerande, som Karasek och Theorell beskriver med deras krav- kontroll- stöd- modell (Arbetsmiljöverket, 2017).

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to find out how female unit managers in healthcare perceive that the daily stress and strains affects the quality of their work and how this affects their perceived mental wellbeing. The study is based on semi-structured interviews of six female informants who are active in healthcare. The result from this study showed that work related stress is a consequence of encumbering work conditions. There are first and foremost two circumstances that can lead to work related stress, high workload and social interaction at work. Another contributing factor may be an improper balance between requirements and resources in the workplace, as Karasek and Theorell describes in their demand- control support- model (Arbetsmiljöverket, 2017).
