2nd Trans-professional Literacy Workshop -- What is Expected from Medical Treatment? Legal and Healthcare Approaches

2012-3-25 (Sun) 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

The Graduate School of Law and Politics will hold "2nd Trans-professional Literacy Workshop -- What is Expected from Medical Treatment? Legal and Healthcare Approaches" on Sunday, March 25.

Last year the supreme court ruled that a hospital had to pay financial compensation for infringing on the right of expectation if medical treatment was significantly inappropriate and did not meet the patient's expectation. Following that case, the Osaka district court approved a case calling for compensation for infringement of the right of expectation. How can "expectation" be protected by law? When medical professionals, legal professionals, and patients speak of "expectation," what do they mean?

Most our problems are complex and need response from a team of specialists in a variety of fields. For example, for specialists such as doctor, engineer, legal professionals are to deal with a problem in concert, cross-disciplinary literacy and communication skills are necessary.

MITSUNARI Kenji, professor at the Graduate School of Law and Politics is leading a research project under Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research seeking ways to nurture personnel who can respond to such needs.
