    © 2016 International Council of Nurses. Background: The recent Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant accident was one of more than 200 serious nuclear/radiation incidents (accidents and disasters) that occurred worldwide since 1945. The current Fukushima disaster is in the recovery phase with the decreasing levels of radiation in the environment. However, fears and stigma related to the perceived risk of radiation exposure persist among the general population. Introduction: To improve on students' preparedness for social and public health challenges after a radiation incidence, radiation education was provided for undergraduate public health nursing students. Aim: This case study reports the development and implementation of the first class of radiation education in public health nursing, as well as students' reflections on their class experience. Methods: We included a 90-min radiation class in an undergraduate public health nursing course in Tokyo, Japan. Lectures/discussion on technical and environmental aspects provided the minimally essential content for basic radiation knowledge. After class, all the 65 students were invited to freely write their reflections on the class. With their consent, 61 students' anonymous written accounts were qualitatively analysed. Results: Five themes emerged: awareness of ignorance about radiation, problems produced by the mass media, becoming knowledgeable about radiation, public health nurses' role, and trustful and enjoyable lecture. Discussion: The class inspired students to consider social, psychological and relational aspects of knowing and not knowing about radiation and their future professional role. Conclusion and implications for nursing: Once radiation is taught at school, nursing students will emerge as professionals with the belief that radiation is within their professional purview. Education is key to disaster prevention, preparation, response and recovery. Given the ubiquitous nature of health challenges after a radiation incident, radiation education is indispensable for nursing students worldwide.

    目的 より質の高い保健師養成を目指し、保健師教育は保健師・看護師の統合カリキュラムから学部選択制や大学院教育への変革期を迎えており、その教育成果を適切に評価していく必要がある。しかし、従来の保健師教育の評価に関する国内外の研究は、一機関の学生のみを対象にしたものが多く、評価の精度を高めるためにも多角的な視点による調査が求められている。そこで本研究の目的を、保健師学生の卒業時の技術到達度について、東京都特別区内7大学の学生・教員ならびに特別区保健師を対象として多角的に評価し、統合カリキュラム最終年度の各対象からみた学生の到達度評価の現状と、保健師教育の課題を把握することとした。方法 対象は、特別区内7大学の学生663人と教員20人、特別区の保健師86人とした。統合カリキュラム最終年度にあたる2013年度に地域看護学実習を行った学生が、「保健師教育の技術項目と卒業時の到達度」の98項目を到達しているかどうかを問う無記名自記式質問紙調査を実施した。結果 学生が各項目を「到達できた」と回答した割合(到達割合)の平均は、学生67.9%、教員40.9%、保健師44.4%であった。各項目の到達割合が8割以上の項目数は、学生23項目、教員7項目、保健師0項目であり、5割未満の項目は、学生13項目、教員66項目、保健師70項目であった。到達割合上位10位のうち3者共通のものが6項目あり、アセスメント、信頼関係の構築、個人情報やプライバシーの保護などが含まれていた。下位10項目中、共通項目は4項目であり、当事者とのチーム形成や、健康危機管理に関することなどが含まれていた。結論 各対象の到達割合は8割に満たないものが多く、さらに、教員・保健師の結果では半数以上の項目が5割未満であり、統合カリキュラムにおいて、実習期間も制約された中で保健師養成のための講義・実習を行うには限界があると考えられる。(著者抄録)

     13(2) 17-24 Jul. 2009
     The objective was to obtain useful concrete measures for strategic practices in People-Centered Care (PCC), basedon the results of five years of PCC activities of the St. Luke's College of Nursing 21st Century Center of Excellence(COE) Program: “Nursing for People-Centered Initiatives in Health Care and Health Promotion”.This qualitative research gathered recorded interview data from those involved in all 15 PCC projects and data fromvarious records and documents. Categories signifying outcomes indicated the results obtained from PCC activities. The PCC outcomes could be compiled into a matrix composed of three data aspects and four activity actors. Thevertical axis indicated the three characteristics of the outcomes: “the ability formation process outcomes,” “healthpromotion outcomes,” and “system expansion outcomes.” The horizontal axis displayed: actors―individual “peoplein general/people involved” and “professionals”. The two other dimensions were “activity groups” running theprojects, including the reciprocal effects between individuals, and “the community,” which included the individuals,environment and culture affected by

     The objective was to obtain useful concrete measures for strategic practices in People-Centered Care (PCC), basedon the results of five years of PCC activities of the St. Luke's College of Nursing 21st Century Center of Excellence(COE) Program: “Nursing for People-Centered Initiatives in Health Care and Health Promotion”.This qualitative research gathered recorded interview data from those involved in all 15 PCC projects and data fromvarious records and documents. Categories signifying outcomes indicated the results obtained from PCC activities. The PCC outcomes could be compiled into a matrix composed of three data aspects and four activity actors. Thevertical axis indicated the three characteristics of the outcomes: “the ability formation process outcomes,” “healthpromotion outcomes,” and “system expansion outcomes.” The horizontal axis displayed: actors―individual “peoplein general/people involved” and “professionals”. The two other dimensions were “activity groups” running theprojects, including the reciprocal effects between individuals, and “the community,” which included the individuals,environment and culture affected by

    Treatises and studies 18 31-42 1992
    We investigated two areas; (1) the attitude of nursing students toward their surgical nursing courses before beginning practices, and (2) the relationship between their attitude toward this course and their previous personal experience with surgery. Sixty-seven nursing students participated in this study. Twenty-three different words and 10 different colors were presented to students. Each student answered how each word or color corresponded to her attitude toward her surgical nursing course using a scale of 1 to 5. We also surveyed the background of each student to: (1) admission to hospital and/or surgery on herself or a family member, (2) duration of attending meetings in a surgical ward, (3) degree of self-confidence in nursing skill, (4) previous grade in surgical nursing course, (5) degree of self-esteem, and (6) lifestyle. Using factor analysis, We found five factors which were combined in students' attitudes toward their surgical course : (1) fearful and difficult (factor 1); (2) favorite (factor 2); (3) too fast and hard (factor 3); (4) uncomfortable (factor 4); and (5) gentle and human but negative (factor 5). High self-esteem correlated with factor 1 (P<0.01). Lifestyle correlated with factor 1 (P<0.01) and with factor 3 (P<0.05). Factor 4 correlated with a low grade on a previous surgical nursing course (P<0.01). We concluded that our students had negative attitudes toward their surgical nursing couses before practice and that these negative attitude related to previous lifestyle, a low grade in a previous surgical nursing course, or a high degree of self-esteem.
  • Study of the Learning Process in Three Weeks of Psychiatric Nursing Practice : Students' Self-Evaluation of Level of Understanding in the Areas of Self-Awareness,Patient Behavior and the Therapeutic Relationship.

    Treatises and studies 18 43-55 1992
    The purpose of this study was to evaluate the improvement of students' level of understanding during the three weeks of psychiatric nursing practice. Weekly eighty students evaluated themselves on their self-awareness, their comprehension of patient behavior and the quality of the therapeutic relationship. As a result of this self-evaluation system, according to the students, their level of understanding improved in all three areas after three weeks. T-test comparisons of students' level of understanding after the three weeks indicated significant differences. However, the rate and degree of improvement varied. We concluded as follows; (1) students' self-awareness developed from the initial self-conscious stage to a greater awareness of others' perception of their behavior, and then on to an objective, professional attitude and performance, (2) the comprehension of patient behavior evolved from a superficial observation of the patient to a more empathetic awareness of the patient's values, motivation, and the nature of the patient's illness, and (3) the quality of the therapeutic relationship changed from concern about the patients' feelings in general, to a more constructive approach to create a comfortable atomosphere, responding to each patient's needs.

  • Ethnography of administrative organizations related to the ethical practice of public health nurses in Japan
    Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology:Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(挑戦的萌芽研究)
    Project Year: 2010 - 2012  Investigator(s):Kiyomi ASAHARA
    The purpose of this study was to describe the relationships between the culture of Japanese administrative organizations and the ethical practice of public health nurses (PHNs). We collected data by conducting interviews, observation of participants, and examination of existing materials, and then the data were analyzed by content analysis. The results showed the culture of the administrative organizations was “accomplishing projects faithfully based on the procedures of their organizations or laws/systems,” while the culture of the PHNs was “promoting health and well-being of the population using their professional knowledge and skills.” Cognitive gaps between the administrators and PHNs occurred with interaction of these two cultures, particularly with regards the ethical practice of the PHNs’. PHNs and administrators must therefore recognize their different cultures, and develop a culture in which they can work together as partners.

    Project Year: 2007 - 2010  Investigator(s):Kiyomi ASAHARA
    The purposes of this study were to develop an educational ladder and the relevant programs for ethics education to promote effective practice of public health nurses (PHNs) and home visiting nurses (HVNs) in Japan. We conducted the interviews and questionnaire surveys with PHNs and HVNs to clarify : the contents and frequencies of encountering ethical issues in their practices, the components of moral behavior, experiences with ethics education, experiences influencing nurses' decisions in practice and workplace environment related to ethical practices; then the relationships between each variable and demographic data including length of work experience and position were analyzed. Based on these results, we developed a tentative educational ladder and targeted programs for ethics education and then conducted and evaluated the trial programs for PHNs and HVNs. Finally, we revised the ethics educational ladder and the relevant programs for ethics education for PHNs and HVNs.
  • Development and Evaluation the Educational Program for Nursing-Ethics in Community Health Nursing
    Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology:Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(基盤研究(C))
    Project Year: 2004 - 2006  Investigator(s):Kiyomi ASAHARA
    Purpose : To develop and evaluate the educational program for nursing ethics in community health nursing for undergraduate nursing students, public health nurses (PHNs), and visiting nurses (VNs).Methods : This study was conducted as follows : 1) develop a program based on the results of literature reviews, information gleaned from the curriculum of the ethics center of the university, and a survey of ethical issues for nurses working in the community ; 2) conduct this program for students (25), PHNs (17) and VNs (30) ; 3) evaluate the process and outcome ; and 4) modify the program based on the results of the evaluation.Results : Using this program, the students, PHNs and VNs achieved most of the goals set forth by the program, understood the ethical issues found in their daily practices and also the importance of respecting the values and systematic thinking processes of others to resolve ethical issues. In addition, their scores on the Moral Sensitivity Questionnaire increased.Discussion : This program was very useful and may be beneficial for use in the education and practice of community health nursing.
  • Comprehensive Study of Systems that Support the Families of Patients in the Hospital
    Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology:Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(基盤研究(C))
    Project Year: 2001 - 2003  Investigator(s):Kiyomi ASAHARA
    The purpose of this study was to identify appropriate systems that support the families of hospital inpatients. The results were as follows.1.The results of interviews with 45 families of hospital inpatients and outpatients showed that the families had difficulties in all areas of their lives related to the care of the hospitalized family member. They cared for the patients without support from persons outside of the family, and they worried about the physicians, nurses, neighbors, coworkers, other family members and the patients in same room as their family members.2.The results of a survey on caring for families among 333 nurse administrators in hospitals and communities show that nurse administrators in the communities are more supportive of families and evaluated their caring for the family more positively than their counterparts in hospitals. Most nurse administrators in hospitals think of families as part of the background of the patient, but those in the communities realize that families also need care and support.3.In the USA, advanced hospitals concerned with family caring have a system that places case managers in the wards. They support families consistently from admission to discharge by coordinating professionals in their hospitals, providing education about patient care, conducting discharge planning, etc. The discharge planning sections of some hospitals in Japan support patients and families who are expected to have some problems after discharge. One of the most important functions of these sections is to refer patients and families to health and welfare organizations and other professionals in their communities.These results indicate that the nurse case manager system is an appropriate system to support families of hospital patients. Political issues to support families in hospital in the future were discussed.
  • Ethnographic study on the community health nursing practices in rural Japan
    Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology:Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(基盤研究(C))
    Project Year: 1997 - 1999  Investigator(s):Kiyomi ASAHARA
    The purpose of this ethnographic study was to describe the community health nursing practices in rural Japan from public health nurses' perspectives. Twenty-four public health nurses (PHNs) who were working at rural community participated in unstructured, tape-recorded interviews.The findings were as follows:1. Rural communities have maintained the traditional values and norms, while rural life has rapidly changed.2. It was found the closer relationship between PHNs and community members.3. Six characteristic rural community health nursing practices were found; 'considering the whole of community', 'conducting the practices from the actual work to health care policy planning', 'creating the health care systems in a community', 'networking among the persons, organizations and institutions ', 'surveying the actual condition of community' and 'carrying out immediately '.4. 'Networking among the persons, organizations and institutions' which was the most important community health nursing practice in rural areas had five kinds of modes; 'connecting with the residents', 'maintaining the relationship with other professionals or staff members of town (village) office ', 'connecting with clients and their family members', 'networking strategies when PHNs initiate the health care programs' and 'creating the residents' organizations or neighbors' networks in a community'.5. PHNs were practicing community health nursing activities with the cognitions such as 'philosophy of community health nursing practices', 'a sense of satisfaction to attain the aim', 'disadvantages of PHNs working at rural community ', 'a sense of justice for residents and their community', 'awareness of PHN's responsibilities for residents and theft community' and 'desire to learn and improve the health care of one's community'.From these results, it seems important to clarify the knowledge about rural community health nursing practices and create the rural nursing modal.
