Objectivities of a Post-Normal Guideline Project: The Introduction of a Guideline for Sick-Listing Practices in Sweden
Sager, Morten; Eriksson, Lena
Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, v11 n3 p351-376 Aug 2015
In this article we describe and diagnose ailments suffered by the so-called "medical insurance decision-making support tool" that was published in 2007 as part of a major reform of the Swedish social insurance. Through document studies and interviews the guideline is analysed and compared with a reference case, a guideline within cardiology. Particular attention is paid to different types of objectivity and how they relate to the sick-listing guidelines and their uncertain, multi-professional, high-stakes or "post-normal" character. Conflicting concerns and probably unavoidable choices are found in the ambitions, formats, implementation mode and experts of the guidelines.
