At the beginning of the 20th century, new measures have been implemented to promote more return to work after sick leave and decrease the number of people who are dependent on social security as the source of income. In co-operation between the Directorate of Health and Welfare, the "Faster back to work scheme" was created. It was carried into effect by the Absence due to Sickness Commission in 2006. Under this Faster back scheme, specialist health services, the Central Norway Regional Health R & D, Health Mid-Norway, have entered into agreements with private rehabilitation centers. The purpose is to expand capacity and to create and evaluate new rehabilitation models under the scheme. At a private rehabilitation institution in Central Norway, Smednes trivselsgård as, a new model of AFEM rehabilitation is developed. AFEM stands for “Responsibility For Self-Mastery”. The model has a psychosocial and educational focus and includes a four-week rehabilitation stay with follow-up counseling over a year when needed.
