Abstract [en]

The majority of individuals on long-term sick leave experience negative effects in their lives associated with limitations on their participation, decreased income, and feelings of guilt. The aim was to describe the experiences that women on long-term sick leave have of participation in occupation. Unstructured interviews were used for the data collection, which involved eight women; a grounded theory approach was used. The results showed that the women's long-term sick leave changed their roles, daily habits, and routines, and their participation in occupations was negatively influenced. Their occupational performance also diminished, thereby having a negative influence on their social relationships. However, over time they came to find different strategies that contributed to a feeling of occupational competence and thence they started to rebuild their occupational identity. Through this began the process of occupational adaptation, which resulted in an increased experience of participating in occupation. As a conclusion, it should be noted that occupational therapy interventions should be directed at women on long-term sick leave at an early stage in the rehabilitation process to address the adaptation of their roles, habits, routines, and social environment
