Abstract [en]

This study was undertaken to explore the views of occupational therapists concerning their competences in healthpromotion, and their perceptions of how they apply these competences in their daily work. The study also elicited their views onthe contributions that occupational therapists could make to health promotion if given the opportunity.Methods:Data werecollected infive focus-group discussions with 24 occupational therapists. These discussions were tape recorded andtranscribed verbatim; data were analysed using qualitative content analysis.Results:The mainfindings are that the informantstook an individualized salutogenic approach in their work and rarely engaged in health promotion on a systemic or societallevel. They believed that their patients and collaborating partners, as well as public officials, remained unaware of theircompetences in health promotion.Conclusions:Thefindings of this study could enrich the discussion among occupationaltherapists on how they could make a more significant contribution to health promotion on a broader level.
