Thank you for Osaka Medical University giving us the precious chance, letting us come to here and learn so much knowledge about Japan.
Between two weeks, I understood about old people’s insurance and other service. We visited the OMC Hospital to learn how the Japanese healthcare environment works and how nurses interact with their patients. Learning about the differences between Japan and Taiwan.
The most interesting experience was to use the models to imitate a woman in childbirth with a complete production process. I have already been practice in maternity department in Taiwan. I think this imitation experience was so real that was similar to the true process about production.
And we visited the patient’s home, understanding how the home care system work. We saw the home nurses, PT, OT and other helpers working together and help the patient improve their quality of life. These services make them more convenient and more comfortable, reducing the burden on family members and increasing the rest time of family members.
Everyone in OMC was very kind and friendly, I think that I was very lucky taking part in this program with Osaka medical college.
