The role of residents to defend community medicine
Ishimoto, Chieko A the Group for the Protection of Community Medical Services
the shortage of physicians
Saturday emergency service at the hospital was discontinued in April, 2008. It became evident that the community medical service program was facing a serious situation due to the shortage of physicians at a strategy meeting held at the hospital. Local residents realized that to help improve medical services in Kaifu Hospital and to build a network connecting the various service providers would be needed, and then formed the Group for the Protection of Community Medical Services. Their main activities are as follows :
１）Presents like pillows have been donated based on the revenue from the bazaar to express the gratitude to physicians.
２）They gathered １２，４５７ signatures which were used as a petition to increase the number of limited express trains on JR Mugi Line.
３）They have periodically cleaned grounds of hospitals and physicians’housings.
４）They have showed a short play to residents to reduce a convenience check-up to Kaifu hospital.
５）They have attended presentations of medical practices by Tokushima University medical students and have listened the presentation and discussed with them.
