Description
Allergic diseases have continued to increase on a global scale over the past 50 years, and one in two Japanese citizens suffer from some allergic disease in current. “Japanese Basic Law on Allergic Disease Control” promulgated in 2014 states that “People with allergic diseases should receive appropriate allergic diseases medicine equally based on scientific knowledge regardless of their living area, and citizens should obtain appropriate information on allergic diseases”. Under the philosophy, the medical system is being developed at a rapid pace. Allergy specialty hospital is selected in each prefecture in addition to the National Allergy Center Hospital, and allergy specialists who are responsible for medical treatment will be more important in the future. Medical collaboration system and information provision system suitable for “all the people can be equally able to benefit from correct allergy medical treatment” will be constructed.
On the other side, in accordance with the new specialist system by the new Japanese Medical Specialty Board, the new allergy specialist should work for all allergic diseases that cause symptoms in various organs, different from the current allergy specialist who treats only for the allergic diseases related to their own basic field. It means that the new allergy specialist must work to diagnose, treat, and manage patients with allergic diseases of their own medical department(internal medicine, pediatrics, dermatology, otolaryngology and ophthalmology)in mild cases to severe refractory case, and also must have knowledge to be able to conduct to all allergic problems in other than their own medical department. Accumulating a wide range of knowledge experience towards this goal and practicing good medical practice is necessary for “desirable” allergy specialist.
