Report: What we have done
The Governor’s Newsletter
The Governor’s Newsletters were published four times (two English and two Japanese versions) in 2017 fiscal year. Since 2016, Governor’s Newsletter has been designed by Professor Akihisa Tatsumi of Kyoto University of Arts.
The Facebook page
The Facebook page of the ACP Japan Chapter is designed to inform the public of the latest articles from Annals of Internal Medicine, Internist Weekly, and other information from ACP and ACP Japan Chapter.
PRC members posted 127 articles on ACP Japan Chapter Facebook page. ACP Japan Chapter Facebook page has acquired 878 “likes” by the end of April 2018.
One of the academic discussion on the facebook page was published on the journal, Annlas of Internal Medicine (http://annals.org/aim/article-abstract/2664837/comparative-effectiveness-routine-invasive-coronary-angiography-managing-unstable-angina?doi=10.7326%2fL17-0521)
In the clinic project
PRC and collaborating members translate “In the clinic” articles. The first Japanese-translated article has been released on Apr 2018.
PRC established communication server (https://plaza.umin.ac.jp/~ACP/), which facilitates communication within Japan Chapter members and public. After beginning of the server on Dec 2017, there are 6963 visit as of 5/13/2018.
PRC was approved chapter development fund for an activity of “In the clinic project”.
Plan: What we are going to do
PRC are going to maintain above mentioned activities including publishing governor’s newsletter, posting articles on the facebook page, “In the clinic” project.
In the Clinic Japanese Translation Project has been in progress which is one of the leading project of PRC (public relations committee). There have been more applicants than the actual slots for the translation teams. The first translated article of In the Clinic, which is HCV, has been posted on the ACP main chapter’s webpage this April. Through this project, our goal is to have the members of ACP Japan Chapter to be able to utilize the excellent ACP resources including In the Clinic.
At this year’s annual meeting, we have presented a practical workshop with the collaboration of ‘In the Clinic Translation Project’ and ‘Bedside 5-minute Teaching’ We prepared the 12 general rules = Bedside 5-munite Teaching, which are based on 6 articles of In the Clinic.
In this practical workshop, participants have output the Bedside 5-munites Teaching and at the end of the seminar, they appeared to find themselves be able to use the rules as part of their active knowledge in the clinical setting. We hope this workshop served as an eye-opener to get one out of a lifelong sense of insufficiency where one feel he/she is not acquiring active knowledge even with a lot of literature reading.
