Abstract [en]

This study looked at 13 mental health nurses and social workers who were recently trained as case managers (CMs) and the work-related challenges they faced in community mental health services. Data were collected during ten peer supervisions sessions. Participants expressed pride and enthusiasm about their new function as CMs, but they also acknowledged that their new position meant they had to confront existing systems and posed several challenges, including organizational hindrances, economic prerequisites, nominated administrators, role function, and model fidelity. We conclude that the existing organizations seemed to be unprepared to hold and facilitate more person-centered approaches, such as designating CMs. The model fidelity is important, but has to be flexible according to clients' daily state.
