Abstract [no]

Utilstrekkelig fysisk aktivitet erregnet somet av de største folkehelseproblemene. Helsepersonell i rehabiliteringstjenesten har en viktig rolle for å oppfordre pasienter til økt fysisk aktivitet.

Hensikt Studiens hensikt har værtå undersøke pasienters erfaringer og opplevelser med stavgang i spesialisert medisinsk rehabilitering

Metode Studien er basert påkvalitativ metode. Datainnsamlingen er foretatt gjennom tre fokusgrupper med til sammen 19 pasienter, åtte kvinner og 11 menn. Syv av disse ble fulgt opp med et individuelt oppfølgingsintervju.

Resultat Studien har vist at pasientene har mange postivive erfaringer med stavgang som aktivitet under rehabiliteringsoppholdet. Disse kan beskrives ut fra fire hovedkategorier: Opplæring i stavgang, opplevelser med stavgang som aktivitet, sosiale aspekter, planer om å fortsette med stavgang. Oppfølgingsintervjuene beskriver i tillegg årsaker til fortsatt stavgang eller ønske om fortsatt stavgang.

Konklusjon Pasientene har mange positive erfaringer med å lære, erfare og mestre stavgang som aktivitet under et rehabiliteringsopphold. Stavgang ble oppfattet som en trygg, meningsfull og lett tilgjengelig aktivitet, som kan avlaste ved balanse-og leddproblemer, men samtidlig brukes for å få en større kondisjonseffekt enn ved vanlig gange
