Studenteropgave: Basisprojekt


This project explores a Copenhagen-based health promotion tool, the Sociolance, and particularly the ways in which its practitioners provide necessary services to the socially vulnerable of the municipality. By their use of a unique approach which combines both health and social care, and doing a large amount of so-called ‘outreach work’, the Sociolance practitioners work to connect vulnerable citizens to resources that can help improve their situation in the long-term. This project will explore the elements that work to facilitate and hinder this work, and how these elements affect the practitioners’ ability to help their patients. The ways in which these conditions affect the Sociolance’s success and effectiveness as a health-promotion tool will be explored. The project uses empirical data collected from qualitative interviews with the Sociolance employees and a representative from the administration along with secondary empirical data from published reports about the Sociolance. Both the Social-Ecological Model and the Social Cognitive Theory will be applied to the empirical data to understand the elements at play and analyze what they represent about the results of the interactions between the Sociolance practitioners and patients for its effectiveness.
