    The influence of social capital on happiness is attracting attention around the world. Many studies that investigated the relationship between social capital and happiness suggest that happiness correlates to a positive social environment. This study aims to examine the relationship between social capital and happiness in a community with the lowest National Health Insurance expenditures in Miyazaki Prefecture (Japan). This cross-sectional study targeted 2,730 residents in the community aged 40 to 75 who were covered by National Health Insurance in 2015. A self-administered questionnaire consisting of questions focusing on demographic characteristics, happiness, and social capital was sent to the residents, and 1,106 of them (40.5%) returned the questionnaires by the deadline. Analysis of responses indicated a positive relationship between social capital and happiness with regard to all three factors of social capital (trust, connections and interaction, and social participation). We conclude that evaluating the relationship between social capital and health in terms of happiness is important to creating a lively society in which citizens support one another, in addition to promoting physical and mental well-being.

    Background: Larva migrans syndrome (LMS) is a clinical syndrome in human which is caused by the larvae migration of zoonotic parasites. It is well-known that ascarid nematodes, namely Toxocara canis, Toxocara cati, or Ascaris suum, the roundworms commonly found in the intestines of dogs, cats and pigs respectively, are the most important causative species of LMS that have been reported worldwide. Humans are considered as paratenic host of these ascarid nematodes which means that the larvae do not develop into adults and they do not lay eggs. The juvenile larvae penetrate into circulatory system and migrate to the liver, lungs, central nerves system or eyes causing LMS. When a patient is infected and diagnosed of LMS, the recommended treatment is oral-administration of albendazole. However, the regimen has not been standardized around the world. In Japan, the duration of medication is much longer in comparison with other countries. Thus, the purpose of this study aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of long-term administration treatment of albendazole for larva migrans syndrome in order to standardize an effective treatment regimen. Methods: Our laboratory receives requests for serological tests of parasitic infections from all over Japan. From 2004 to 2014, there were 4,934 cases of which 758 cases were diagnosed as positive of larva migrans syndrome. We recommend follow up tests three to four months after initial diagnosis in most cases. During this period, we received 299 cases as follow ups. We analyzed these follow-up cases on the ELISA results before and after the treatment as well as on medication used, dose and duration of medication, clinical findings, and side effects which were recorded on a consultation sheet provided by the attending physicians. Results: Among 299 follow up cases, 11 cases were excluded due to the optical densities did not meet the criteria of this study, we have 288 cases as the subjects of this study. Those cases that used only albendazole have the efficacy rate of 78.0% and the side effects rate of 15.0%. However, the side effects reported were mild to moderate and there were no prolong severe cases. Conclusions: The long-term administration treatment of albendazole is safe and effective for larva migrans syndrome.

    © 2015 The Japanese Society of Internal Medicine. All rights reserved.Objective: Paragonimiasis, or lung fluke infection, is a food-borne parasitic disease caused by infection with trematodes belonging to the genus Paragonimus. Although paragonimiasis was once considered successfully controlled in the 1970s, new cases began to emerge in the late 1980s. To apprehend the current-day situation of the re-emergent cases of paragonimiasis in Japan, we conducted a retrospective review of 443 patients who were referred to our laboratory and diagnosed as having paragonimiasis during 2001-2012.Methods: Patients were diagnosed as having paragonimiasis based primarily on immunodiagnostic methods in addition to clinical, laboratory, and radiographic findings. Patient data were extracted from consultation sheets from attending physicians and were analyzed.Results: Majority of the patients were residents of Kyushu Island. However, a substantial number of cases were also from other parts of Japan. Immigrants (mostly from China, Thailand, and Korea) accounted for a quarter of the cases. Native Japanese contracted paragonimiasis by consuming wild boar meat or freshwater crabs, whereas immigrants contracted the infection almost exclusively by consumption of freshwater crabs. Eosinophilia and elevated serum IgE levels were found in around 80% of the patients. Parasite egg detection was documented only in 11.7% of the cases, showing the reliance on serological tests for diagnosing paragonimiasis in current clinical practice.Conclusion: Paragonimiasis remains a public health issue in Japan, and the situation should be closely monitored.

     概要を見る

    本年度で2年目となる。初年度に実施したオンライン交流をベースとして、今後の展開を策定するための分析と提携校との調整を中心に研究を進めた。 1)海外提携大学との実施調整を行った。すでに交流を始めている台湾・国立成功大学、台湾・Mackay Medical Collegeとは引き続き交流を進める。インドネシア・ブラウィジャヤ大学とはスケジュールの都合により一端交流は休止することとした。2)昨年に引き続き、Moodle上に構築したライティング交流クラスMed Exchangeに新たな教材を作成するためMackay Medical Collegeの臨床教授、助教綬との打ち合わせを実施し方向性を共有した。3)英文エッセイの評価項目策定:学生の英文ライティングを評価するための項目を策定する。ライティングのスキルや精度の評価というよりは、むしろ医学生が自らの意識に向かい合うプセスを数値化できる評価尺度を目指した。Writing Assessmentand Evaluation Rubrics. Grade6 (McGrow Hill)などを参照しながら、フォームや文法の自己評価に加えることとした。4)ライティングデータを一部電子データ化しその結果をまとめた。5)参加者への事後インタビュー(オンライン)を実施し、システムの評価を行った。このプログラムの意図は、第一義的には異なる文化や価値観との「遭遇」と「交流」であり、その先に見えてくる自己の信念や価値観への気づきを促すことである。それをさらに深めるためにも、今後ライティングスキルの向上を目指した介入は必要であろう。

     概要を見る

    Background: In 2007, Japanese government set a “work-life balance” charter aiming at a society for people to choose work and life styles freely. It is important for nurses at different life stages work in an environment which they can have mutual respect to achieve work-life balance. Although many researches were on nurses working at hospitals; there were few researches for public health nurses (PHNs). Purpose: This study aims to identify the factors that influence the quality of life for PHNs. Methods: This was a cross-sectional study by distributing questionnaires to 421 PHNs working in Miyazaki Prefecture. The Brooks’ Survey of Quality of Nursing Work Life used in this study consisted questions covering 4 dimensions: 1. Homelife/Worklife, 2. Work Design, 3. Work Context, and 4. Work World. The answer to each question accumulated points. The data measured included gender, age group, marital status, dependents and work place. The collected data was analyzed using ANOVA and student’s t-test. Results: After removing missing value data, there were 209 usable data. The gender distribution was 9 males (4.3%) and 200 females (95.7%). The mean age was 39.1 (SD=10.2). The work-life balance factor resulting from work place comparing Prefecture to Municipalities revealed the following statistical differences: 1. high in Work Design, Work Context, and Work World, 2. low in self-evaluation. In addition, it was significantly low in Homelife/Worklife comparing age groups of 50s and 20s. Conclusion and Recommendations: PHNs for prefectural health centers showed high in Work Design and Work Context but low in self-evaluation. They were responsible for wide range and professional tasks while PHNs for Municipalities were responsible for health issues related to community residents. This study demonstrated that work place plays an important role in work-life balance. It is necessary to identify work-life unbalance group and to establish measurements.
