Abstract: This thesis describes the role of a problem solving intervention approach in improving quality of work and well-being of health care employees. The promising results of a problem solving intervention as well as the strength and limitations of it, point at the possible importance of problem solving research within the field of health care employees interventions. The study limitations that are described in the general discussion, however, also point at the need for carefull interpretation of the study results. Therefor, more extensive research is needed to further understand the interventional and theory based mechanisms that underlie health care employees problem solving behaviors. There is stil much more to know about the role of specific problem solving mechanisms in health care interventions. Implementing the results of this thesis in future problem solving studies in health care employees might bring the appli cation of problem solving theory in the field of worksite health promotion up to a next level.
