    Using digital technologies to engage with medical research: views of myotonic dystrophy patients in Japan.Victoria Coathup, Harriet J. A. Teare, Jusaku Minari, Go Yoshizawa, Jane Kaye, Masanori P. Takahashi & Kazuto Kato - 2016 - BMC Medical Ethics 17 (1):51.
    As in other countries, the traditional doctor-patient relationship in the Japanese healthcare system has often been characterised as being of a paternalistic nature. However, in recent years there has been a gradual shift towards a more participatory-patient model in Japan. With advances in technology, the possibility to use digital technologies to improve patient interactions is growing and is in line with changing attitudes in the medical profession and society within Japan and elsewhere. The implementation of an online patient engagement platform (...)

    Ethical Considerations of Research Policy for Personal Genome Analysis: The Approach of the Genome Science Project in Japan.Kazuto Kato, Tetsuya Shirai & Jusaku Minari - 2014 - Life Sciences, Society and Policy 10 (1):1-11.
    As evidenced by high-throughput sequencers, genomic technologies have recently undergone radical advances. These technologies enable comprehensive sequencing of personal genomes considerably more efficiently and less expensively than heretofore. These developments present a challenge to the conventional framework of biomedical ethics; under these changing circumstances, each research project has to develop a pragmatic research policy. Based on the experience with a new large-scale project—the Genome Science Project—this article presents a novel approach to conducting a specific policy for personal genome research in (...)
