Hälsofrämjande arbete utfört av hälsopedagoger inom företagshälsovården
2010 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [sv]

Studien var en undersökning riktad till hälsopedagoger verksamma inom en företagshälsovård i

Sverige, med syftet att beskriva deras hälsofrämjande arbete. Genom ett tillfällighetsurval

kontaktades åtta hälsopedagoger via mail med en förfrågan om de kunde tänka sig att delta i

studien. Studien var av kvalitativ form där respondenterna fick svara på muntligt ställda frågor

under enskilda intervjuer. Fem av intervjuerna genomfördes under personliga möten och tre av

dem genomfördes via telefon. Resultatet visade att respondenterna arbetade på individ-, gruppoch

organisationsnivå. Deras arbetsuppgifter var mycket varierande och bestod av

hälsoprofilbedömningar, hälsokartläggningar, viktminskningsgrupper, rökavvänjningskurser,

främjande av arbetsmiljö, föreläsningar, utbildningar och strategiskt arbete med mera. Arbetet

upplevdes av dem själva bidra till förändrade vanor hos deras företagskunder och kunde därmed

ses bida till en förbättrad folkhälsa. Flera av dem nämnde att det hälsopedagoger specifikt kunde

tillföra företagshälsovården var ett unikt främjande perspektiv med fokus på det friska.

Majoriteten av dem var även säkra på att hälsosamma medarbetare bidrog till en mer effektiv och

lönsam arbetskraft, och att de arbetsgivare som investerade i företagshälsovård hade mycket att

vinna i längden.

Abstract [en]

The study was a survey among health educators working with an occupational health in Sweden,

with the aim to describe their health promotion work. Through a sample of convenience eight

health educators was contacted by e-mail with an inquiry if they were willing to participate in the

study. The study was based on a qualitative form where the respondents answered verbal questions

during private interviews. Five of the interviews took place during personal meetings and

three of them took place during the telephone. The results showed that the respondents worked

on individual, group and organisations levels

profile assessments, health surveys, weight loss groups, smoking cessation courses, promotion of

health and safety, lectures, training and strategic work among other things. The work was perceived

by them to contribute to healthier habits among their organizational patients, and could

therefore be seen wait to improved public health. Several of the respondents mentioned that the

focus on positive parts was something that the health-educators specifically contributed to the

work of the companies health services. The majority of them were also confident that healthier

employees contribute to a more efficient and profitable labor, and that the employer who invested

in occupational health had much to gain in the long run.

. Their work was very varied and consisted of health
