Abstract [en]

Today's society places greater demands on how preventative and promotional efforts should be based on evidence for optimal results. Public health workers have a great responsibility to act and support the population ahead in a positive healthy direction where evidence-based methods are to form the basis of their actions, but simultaneously they perceive high demands, lack of resources and difficulties in controlling their work situation. This leads to the purpose; how this group of workers relate to and are affected by evidence-based practices in relation to the three themes of this thesis; demands, resources and control. Eleven participants went through semi-structured interviews and a content analysis was conducted by the author on the transcribed material. Results are presented in line with the content of the three themes where demands are represented by categories named time limits, workload and responsibility; resources are represented by cooperation, adequate guidance and budget; and control is represented by context adjustments and loneliness. Public health workers are affected by evidence-based methods where perceived demands lower their ability to function efficiently, where resources are vital and where control is threatened by perceived obstacles but is longed for. Together, public health workers are pillars for raising the well-being of residents and they need attention because their actions affect us all.
