Hide Abstract
We have to create a new paradigm for home medical care system towards a historical increase of elderly population in Japan. Tokyo University and Chiba University have been collaborating to erect a home medical care support center in Kashiwa, Chiba prefecture. We have been constructing a support center as well as a home care doctor system, and also created a teaching course for GPs to learn a home care doctor activity. We have also been constructing a regional network system called IT Net in Chiba, which connects all the entire medical and care staff. We will expand this model in many places and to instruct medical students and residents there in the near future.

Interactions of household composition and required care level with functional and cognitive status among disabled Japanese elderly living in a suburban apartment complex.

Hide Abstract
In the forthcoming super-aging society, the appropriate assessment of functional and cognitive conditions of disabled elderly people will become increasingly significant in providing care services. Care level and household composition would be key factors to assess function. There might also be an interaction between the two factors with the function. The present study examined the associations of household composition and care level with functional and cognitive status among the disabled elderly living in a suburban apartment complex with a high rate of aged residents (39% in 2009).

The 7th Asia Cancer Forum: from the perspective of human security, how can we collaborate as Asians in order to place cancer on the global health agenda? How can we fill in the gaps that exist among us?

Hide Abstract
This forum has continued to discuss the inclusion of cancer on the global health agenda, and specifically the Millennium Development Goals. The seventh forum presented an overview of activities to date, supplemented by reports from Korea, local governments in Japan and representatives from the pharmaceutical industry. Discussion focused on how to engage in measures to tackle cancer prevention and achieve early detection and effective treatment, using limited resources. It was recognized that with non-communicable diseases gaining increasing attention in international dialogue, it is now of the utmost importance to share an accurate recognition of cancer research and treatment throughout Asia and the wider world. Participants concurred that cancer issues are decoupled from the development aid agenda and that cooperation should be advanced on the basis of international cooperation without recourse to governmental development aid.

[Development of a home care educational program for community physicians and other professionals-a trial in Kashiwa City].

Hide Abstract
From May to October 2011, we conducted an 8-day homecare educational program for physicians, dentists, pharmacists, visiting nurses, long-term care managers, and hospital staff in Kashiwa city, Chiba, which was primarily intended to increase home visits by physicians. The characteristics of the program were as follows: 1) active and busy community physician participation, 2) attendance of practical training by physicians, 3) interprofessional discussion, 4) recruitment of participants from the same city, 5) recommendation of participant recruitment by a community-level professional association such as Kashiwa City Medical Association. By comparison of the pre- and post-program questionnaires completed by participants, the motivation for homecare practice, knowledge about homecare, and interactions with other professionals have increased. We will further standardize and generalize this program in order to contribute to homecare promotion in Japan.

[A new attempt to promote home medical care in Kashiwa city-usefulness of information and communication technology with seamless multidisciplinary cooperation].

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Due to the rapidly increasing super-aging society, medical policy in Japan should be redefined. Therefore, the medical and nursing home care system should now be revised greatly. We need to change the current principle that is based on cure only. The patients should receive hospitable care closely connected with their life in their home-town(region)throughout their lifetime. This is termed as "home medical care system". Here, we promote patient-centered medical home care, which implements the chronic and/or End-Of-Life care models, in Kashiwa city, Chiba prefecture. This system is a promising framework for primary care transformation. There is a need for a multidisciplinary team-based care system using information and communication technology(ICT)with smooth and seamless cooperation. However, increased awareness among the workers engaged in home medical care is first required.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
