Medical Educational Effect of Group Encounters

Ever since the Long term Care Insurance System was introduced in Japan, training and qualitative enhancement to the nursing care given by health professionals to the elderly has been requested. It is necessary to train health professionals to recognize the psychological and physical states of the elderly persons they are caring for. An education program that centers on a clinical education is necessary for this but has not been developed in Japan. This research aimed at clarifying the present situation of structural group encounters and when after doing structural group encounters at the Medical Treatment Health Welfare Training School if the attitude to the practice had changed. An evaluation was made using the Kagoshima University Clinical Practice Standard with 30 students using structural group encounters, and 30 students not using encounters. An POST-TEST comparison of the group not using encounters with the group using them, a significant difference was seen in "The plan for a day could not be properly made" and "My opinion cannot be easily communicated", etc. It is supposed that after experiencing structural group encounters, the students may perform an objective self-valuation and a review of care technology that leads to enhancing the learning effects of structural group encounters. This may be effective in transforming the attitude to clinical practice education
