Sammanfattning

A new way of working with complementary interventions was developed and conducted in a county in Sweden. The intervention, Culture and Health, was directed to adult clients with mental disorders and offered cultural, nature-assisted and physical activities once a week during 14 weeks. Implementation of new interventions might be challenging and one barrier might be the professionals (Grol & Grimshaw, 2003) who will carry out the intervention. Consequently, current study aimed to investigate the professionals’ expectations and experiences of the intervention. Focus group interviews (Krueger & Casey, 2015) with professionals before and after the intervention were conducted. The interviews were analysed by content analysis according to Burnard (1991). Result: The analyses of the interviews are under progress and will point out the professionals’ perceived advantages as well as barriers.
Applications to practice: The results strengthen the importance of involving and motivating the professionals when developing and implementing new interventions.
