Background:
The recovery orientated practice was introduced to Psychiatric Centre Sct. Hans a few years ago, and we would like to investigate the effect on the patients and staff. After a review of the recovery models available, we chose to implement the Recovery-Star (RS) in unit M20, which is a part of department M. Department M specializes in treating patients with severe mental illness combined with substance dependence or abuse (dual diagnoses). The RS is an outcome measure which enables people using services to measure their own recovery progress, with the help of mental health workers. The RS is a dialogical tool where the patients together with staff evaluates 10 life areas (mental health management, physical health, self-care, etc.), in 10 levels, in the beginning of the admission and every month. The admissions are normally three months for patients that follow the whole treatment concept. In this study, Recovery is defined according to Shepherd´s definition as: ”Recovery is about building a meaningful and satisfying life, as defined by the person themselves, whether or not there are ongoing or recurring symptoms or problems”.
Aim:
To estimate how the RS scores develops during admission.
To estimate the influence of the background factors on patient´s personal recovery.
To investigate whether patients experience recovery during hospitalization.
To investigate whether the staff are working recovery-oriented when they are using the Recovery-Star.
Method:
The study is designed quantitatively, with a longitudinal design, to estimate how the RS scores develops during admission, and the background factors association to the patient´s personal recovery.
Background factors being: age, diagnoses, sex, lifetime trauma (BTQ), level of ducation, type of abuse (DUDIT-E), ethnicity, housing, depression (BDI), self-concept (RCQ), and anxiety (BAI). Also, the study has a qualitative design with individual interviews, to investigate patients experience and staff recovery-oriented work.
Result:
Preliminary descriptive statistics from the quantitative part of the study will be presented at the conference.
Discussion:
Preliminary discussions will be presented at the conference.
