Professionalizing can also result in struggles between various professions and between classical, well-established professional groups and welfare professions, as is the case between doctors and nurses or between nurses and certified social and health assistants. Struggles occur in the professional field, over the most and least attractive parts of care. Struggles may occur when several professional groups struggle to ensure the most interesting and challenging elements of care work for elderly, for example, rehabilitation. Is it the nurse, the physiotherapist or the certified social and health assistant who should coach and train the elderly to enable them to do more by themselves? Here different professional groups struggle to create an image that qualifications and knowledge base are best suited to the task of rehabilitating the elderly. Other struggles are about avoiding those care tasks seen as ‘dirty, dangerous and degrading’ and to assign these tasks to the least privileged groups.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
