Abstract [sv]

Syfte Denna studie syftar till att bringa mer kunskap kring hur managementkonceptanvänds inom privat äldreomsorg för att hantera de aspekter av sektornsregelmiljö som berör kvalitetsarbete.

Teori: Analys och tolkningar vilar på grunderna inom nyinstitutionell teori samt vidaredess skandinaviska inriktning, särskilt vad avser översättning avmanagementkoncept. Vidare tar studien hänsyn till tidigare forskning kringimplementering av Total Quality Management, såväl som konceptetshuvudsakliga egenskaper.

Empiri: Kvalitetsbokslut publicerade av Vardaga respektive Attendo tre år i följd, samtSocialstyrelsens föreskrifter och allmänna råd SOSFS 2011: 9 Ledningssystemför systematiskt kvalitetsarbete, utgör undersökningens empiriska material.

Slutsats: Regelmiljöns utformning gör tillämpning av Total Quality Managementpraktikerofrånkomligt inom äldreomsorgen. Det är vidare uppseendeväckandehur observerade företag utöver att enbart implementera TQM, även använderretorisk kommunikation som syftar till att legitimera praktikerna, sannolikt förbåde interna och externa ändamål. Vid sidan av TQM-retoriken, uttryckerföretagen även en annan inställning gentemot kvalitet, som snarare betonarvikten av professionell kunskap samt till viss del även problematiserarkvalitetsmätning. Detta indikerar möjlig översättning av kvalitetsbegreppet ochdess innebörd, ej helt osannolikt med syfte att hantera den problematik somframförts av TQM-kritiker.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: The study aims at bringing about more knowledge regarding the role played by management concepts within private elderly care, in handling the aspect of its regulatory environment concerning quality work.

Theory: The analysis and interpretations rest upon the basis of neo institutional theory and furthermore its Scandinavian branch, mainly concerning the issue of translation of management concepts. Further, the study takes into account, previous research on implementation of Total Quality Management as well as main features of the concept.

Data: Annual quality reports published by Vardaga and Attendo for three consecutive years were reviewed, as well as the regulations and guidelines SOSFS: 2011: 9 Management system for systematic quality work imposed by The National Board of Health and Welfare.

Conclusion: The design of the regulatory environment makes application of Total Quality Management practices inevitable in the elderly care sector. Striking, is however how both companies more than just implementing the TQM, additionally are using rhetoric seeking to legitimize the practices, possibly in order to gain internal and/or external recognition. Alongside TQM rhetoric, the two companies also express a different approach towards quality, emphasising the importance of professional knowledge as well as suggesting quality can be hard to measure accurately. This indicates possible translation of the quality term and its meaning, possibly for solving issues presented by TQM critics.
