Short description

IMPROVE consists of two sub-studies that focus on the work to support the introduction of more person-centered care (PCV). In IMPROVE I, the change process is studied as part of the development work in the organization and in IMPROVE II facilitation is tested as a strategy to support the implementation of PCV. The project is a collaboration between researchers at Dalarna University and the University of Gothenburg and performed in collaboration with Region Dalarna. The overall aim is to increase the knowledge of strategies to support work for more person-centered care as well as whether these strategies lead to changes in staff behavior. The project also aims to increase knowledge on how policy decisions regarding person-centered care are perceived at different management levels and health-economic aspects of the work.
