“Collaboration and service quality among health care professionals working with children and their families in Norwegian municipalities”
Kort sammendrag av avhandlingen:
There are many different professions and services that work with health in children, young people, and their families in municipalities in Norway. Poor collaboration between these various services and professions can be problematic. It can cause children not to get the help they need when they need it the most. On the other hand, collaboration and teamwork can also be viewed as job resources for the professionals that work in the different services. Job resources are characteristics of the job that support goal achievement and are motivating and increase learning.
The thesis aims at examining the importance of interprofessional collaboration and teamwork as job resources for professionals that work in health and social care services with a focus on professionals working in Family’s House or family centers in Norway. Four different studies, with different aims, participants, and methodology, were conducted to answer different parts of the research questions. As a whole the thesis examines possible influences of collaboration (such as co-location), its relationship to individual outcomes (such as worker well-being) and to organizational outcomes (such as service quality).
