Introduction to the discussion
“Awareness” is one of the important things common to all duties and care in nursing work.
“Awareness” that, for example, his / her speech is slightly slurred, he/she is not sure of the footing, and he/she looks sleepy and so on leads to nursing care.
Although care workers are not a doctor and cannot treat nursing facility users, “awareness” may be possible to detect signs of serious illness quickly.
However, the lack of “awareness” is often seen as a problem, because it is easy to get into a rut in nursing care, where every day is the same thing.
For nurses and caregivers, “awareness” is the basis of work and the starting point of observation. In addition, attention and observation skills can be acquired by everyday posture.
I believe that this is the vocational “awareness”.
Finding the problem
Then, what should be taken care of to promote good “awareness” in nursing care?
In nursing care, the quality of “awareness” is determined by the accumulation of information and the sharing of information. “Awareness” largely depends on the experience and ability of the care staff, and the know-how is not shared much.
Therefore, it is important that staff involved in nursing care enter the daily care and resident status into the system as needed, and that other staff can view the entered data in a way that facilitates “awareness”.
Furthermore, as for the information to be entered into the system, the issue is how to visualize information such as the state and behavior of users’ emotions, behaviors, etc. Therefore, the input items are determined, and the staff can receive care with the same knowledge.
It is also important to create such an environment.
Therefore, I would like to create a system that can share this “awareness” not only with care facility staff but also with family members who care at home.
Examining the conclusion
By studying with Professor Masatoshi Tamamura, who specializes in social marketing and has a wealth of research results in data analysis based on statistical analysis based on data, I am sure that I could obtain various perspectives regarding my research and it would open up new horizons for me.
Therefore, I believe that Keio University’s Faculty of Policy Management is the most suitable place for pursuing my research and social contributions, and I am aspiring to enter your school and study in your laboratory.
