  • History of a Health Center's Activities in an Urban City in Japan-From 1935 to 1999 in Cyuo-ku, Tokyo.
    (28) 1-17 Mar. 2002
    This study aimed to analyze and clarify the historical changes in public health activities in an urban city in Japan.Chuo-ku Health Center, founded in 1935 and the first urban health center in Japan, was chosen as the site for this investigation. Historical materials from 1935 to 1999 were analyzed from the perspective of primary health care (PHC).Five periods were identified based on social conditions and the focus of public health activities. These periods are : time of war (1935-1945); ten years after WWII (1945-1955); rapid economic growth (1956-1974); increase in the aging population (1975-1988); and making the infrastructure for an aged society (1988-1999). These periods correspond to health transition phase I (1935-1955), health transition phaseII (1956-1988) and health transition phase III (1988- ). Findings describing each period are summarized in chronological tables.

  • Development of a graduate program in women's health and midwifery education and utilizing of international exchange agreement.
    (32) 28-36 Mar. 2006
    St. Luke's College of Nursing (SLCN) has expanded its graduate program by adding a Women's Health and Midwiferycourse in April 2005. There were major challenges both within the college and with other institutions in developing this new program. There are two courses, one for academic researchers and one for advanced practitioners. Permission to implement the program was granted with the understanding that, in addition to completing the master's course, those advanced practitioners who wish to qualify to sit for the national midwifery exam must also enroll in the specified courses necessary to take the exam. In the interest of developing midwifery education in the master's program, in August 2004 we invited faculty from our sister school, Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) School of Nursing, and held a seminar. This was easily accomplished due to the International Exchange Agreement between OHSU and SLCN. The seminar included the introduction and comparison of the midwifery programs at each institution, an educational lecture, observing training at the college, and visiting a birth center. In February of the following year we visited OHSU. In order to pr

    Today, although nursing students report working as volunteers in various community agencies, nursing higher educational institutions have just begun developing programs to prepare students as competent volunteers. Toward that end, the purpose of this study was to describe nursing students' perceptions of primary health issues and care, experiences of volunteer activities, and nursing students' needs to be supported for volunteer work. The Institutional Review Board of St. Luke's College of Nursing granted approval of this study. Sixteen nursing students were recruited after they read an informational poster about the study. Taped and transcribed focus group discussion data was analyzed using content analysis. The primary health issue identified by students was a healthy lifestyle that included diet, exercise, rest and sleep. Students reported that they knew the primary health issue, however they personally had difficulty practicing a healthy lifestyle. They used their nursing knowledge gained in the nursing program as they cared for family members or friends. They also discussed issues of a healthy lifestyle with those close to them. With regards to students' volunteer experience, thirteen of the sixteen participants reported working in elderly homes or hospitals as volunteers as junior or senior high school students. Also, some students worked in developing countries as volunteers. They all reported their volunteer work was not intended to address primary health issues in the community. In addition, the other people they worked with were not family or friends but strangers. Therefore, while they reported what they learned from their volunteer work, it did not occur to them to clarify the meaning of their volunteer work for the recipients. Their perception of primary health issues and care were within family members and friends, those close to themselves. The participants had minimal understanding of primary health issues and care of strangers and the impact or meaning of their volunteer work in the community. Further investigation is needed to explore how to use the volunteer experience to assist nursing students in developing a sense of professional caring for the broader community.

    This report traces international cooperation for a project between Brazil and the Department of Maternal infant Nursing and Midwifery at St. Luke's College of nursing over the past five years. As one of our goals as members of the WHO Collaborating Center for Nursing Development in Primary Health Care, we are searching for effective strategies to ensure safe motherhood.The Maternal and Child Health Improvement Project in Northeast Brazil was launched in April 1996, and will be carried out though march 2001 in the State of Ceara. This project is collaboration between the Government of the Federal Republic of Brazil and the Government of Japan with the purpose of improving health conditions in Northeast Brazil. One of the objectives of the project is to improve maternal and child health services and to promote health education activities at the community level by including the training of community - based health personnel.The initial survey revealed that cesarean section rates were high and there was much artificial intervention. In addition, laboring women did not receive humanistic care. It was felt that delivery related care, including care at the primary level, Would
