High-functioning autism : An interview study regarding the thoughts about treatment of psychiatric personnel (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna undersökning avser att belysa vad personalen anser är de bästa insatserna de kan göra för patienter med högfungerande autism. Intervjuer har utförts på en psykiatrisk klinik inom länet angående vad deras tankar är. Personalen bestod av fyra yrkeskategorier läkare, psykologer, arbetsterapeuter samt sjuksköterskor. Resultaten visar att de olika yrkesgrupperna har ett flertal gemensamma tankar kring personer med högfungerande autism, exempelvis vad dessa personers begränsningar består av, att en förtroendefull relation samt hög kontinuitet är viktiga faktorer i behandlingen. De skiljer sig åt när det gäller vilken vårdinstans som är mest adekvat. En reflektion över resultatet kan vara att det finns behov av en diskussion inte bara kring rätt vårdinstans utan också vad denna vårdinstans skall ha för kompetens och resurser. Denna intervjustudie är förhoppningsvis ett litet bidrag till att ytterligare synliggöra personer med högfungerande autism samt peka på möjliga förbättringar av en behandling som hittills är i sin linda.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study has been to focus on the interventions that members of staff consider to the most appropriate for patients with High Functioning Autism. Interviews have been conducted in a psychiatric clinic in the Västra Götaland region concerning the opinions of four different categories of personnel: psychiatrists, psychologists, occupational therapists and nurses. The results show several common opinions about persons with High Functioning Autism, for example what are the psychic limits of these persons, the importance of a trustful relation and a high degree of continuity. One reflection on the results could be that there is a need of a serious discussion, not only in relation to where these patients should be treated, but also in terms of the competence, skills and resources that is needed. This study thus hopefully provides a small contribution to the process of making persons with High Functioning Autism more visible and also an attempt to identify possible ways of improving treatment for persons with High Functioning Autism.
