”Hygiejne på tværs”: tværsektorielt samarbejde omkring patient/borger med behov for infektionshygiejnisk bistand – hvordan løses opgaven?

Intersectoral collaboration surrounding patients in need of infection control measures : how do we do it? (English)
Abstract [da]

Baggrund: Patientbehandling på sygehuse sker i et højt specialiseret tempo, hvor flere patienter modtager kompliceret pleje og behandling, som ofte fortsætter i kommunerne efter udskrivelsen. Efter strukturreformen skal aftaler om infektionshygiejnisk bistand fra sygehus til kommune indskrives i sundhedsaftaler.

Formål: Formålet med studiet var at udforske og analysere samarbejde på tværs af sektorer, og få en øget forståelse for fænomenet tværsektorielt samarbejde i relation til patient/borger med behov for ydelser, hvori der indgår infektionshygiejnisk bistand.

Metode: Studiet er et kvalitativt multiple casestudie, hvor empirien hentes via semistrukturerede interviews. Teorigrundlaget er perspektivet på tværsektorielt samarbejde, eksempler på modeller for samarbejde, og styrker og svagheder i samarbejde.

Resultat: Studiet viste, at motiverende faktorer for tværsektorielt samarbejde i praksis var: fokus på organisering og struktur i organisationerne, at arbejde sammen i netværk, bevidsthed om klare kommunikationsveje og fokus på faglighed og kompetencer i forhold til infektionshygiejne. Struktureret samarbejde mellem kommune og sygehus med oprettelse af hygiejneorganisation mellem sektorer, gav adgang til ekspertviden, tryghed hos plejepersonalet og motivere til at arbejde med infektionshygiejne som indsatsområde.

Konklusion: Nosokomielle infektioner hos patienter og borgere i sektorovergange, kan sandsynligvis forebygges ved dels at tilføre viden om infektionshygiejne til personale på alle niveauer i organisationerne, og dels ved at indgå et formelt samarbejde mellem kommune og sygehus omkring etablering af en tværsektoriel hygiejneorganisation.

Abstract [en]

Background: Today, patient care in hospitals is highly specialised and undertaken at high speed. Many patients receive complex treatment and care, which often continues in the primary-care sector after the patient is discharged. Structural reform of the health care sector requires infection control measures in intersectoral health agreements.

Aim: This study aimed to investigate and analyse intersectoral collaboration and gain better understanding of collaboration across health sectors in relation to the treatment and care of patients requiring treatment and care for infection control.

Method: This is a qualitative, multiple-case study, wherein semi-structured interviews form the basis of the empirical knowledge. The theory underpinning the study is the perspective on intersectoral collaboration, examples of models of collaboration, and the strengths and weaknesses of collaboration.

Results: The findings showed that the motivational factors for intersectoral collaboration include focus on organisational structure and organisation, collaboration through networks, awareness of the importance of clear communication, and focus on the relationship between professional competencies and infection hygiene. Structured collaboration with the establishment of an actual infection control organisation resulted in access to expert knowledge, security among personnel, and motivation to work with infection control as an area of focus.

Conclusion: Patient transference of nosocomial infections from one health sector to another likely can be prevented by increasing workers’ knowledge of infection control in all sectors, and by formalised collaboration across health sectors to establish an intersectoral, infection control organization.
