Title Professional development in social work : elderly care in Sweden and Denmark
Author(s) Christensen, Jonas
Date 2016
Swedish abstract
The purpose of this article is to highlight and give reflections on elderly care in two welfare states, Sweden and Denmark, on the basis of the question: how can the elderly care profession be understood from a transnational perspective? The empirical data consists of a project, and the analysis is based on an ecological model. The main conclusion is that by focusing on societal and professional knowledge sharing from a regional perspective, we can develop our understanding of the driving forces behind access to knowledge, professional identity maintenance and the professional position of the elderly individual.
