Title: What is a Medical Social Worker?

Presenter: Seiko Nishikawa, Medical Social Worker, Tokeidai Memorial Hospital

Venue: Sapporo International Communication Plaza, MN Bldg. 3F, Kita 1 Nishi 3


The type of patients we work with include those with a handicap caused by disease, accident or simply old age; those without family; and those who have financial problems. We anticipate the problems that such people will have both in hospital and after they return home. Once we listen to the patients’ concerns, we encourage them to focus on their cure and the practical aspects of resuming an ordinary life at home.


Presentation Outline:


1.  Becoming a medical social worker

2.  What medical social workers in Sapporo do

3.  An ordinary day in the life of a medical social worker
