Title:
The Perspectives for Culturally Appropriate Japanese Nursing
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) The aim of this paper is to show the perspectives for culturally appropriate Japanese nursing. Recently, people’s lifestyle and recognition of their health conditions, which are naturally dependent on their cultural background, have become increasingly complex. To complement such a situation, the nursing science should also improve the cultural sensitivity to clients/families and nurses.  So it is needless to say that the cultural viewpoint is very important to the nursing practice, but there are very various implications and significations for the culture. For example, we living in Japanese culture everyday, but it is very difficult to describe one rigid Japanese culture. To point out the culturally appropriate Japanese nursing, we surveyed more than 200 primary research studies of Chiba School of Nursing (Ogawa, 2004, Tsujimura, 2006, Mori, 2007 Mochizuki, 2007, etc.), and from the inductive analysis of all our primary research studies, we derived 4 perspectives that clarify cultural aspect in nursing, namely, “corporeality,” “relationships,” “values related to health and lifestyle activities,” and “societal foundation and organizational culture.” (Masaki, 2005, 2006). These perspectives in themselves are not the characteristics of Japanese cultural nursing, but they are a scheme of cultural nursing that enable to clarify the characteristics of culturally appropriate nursing which respects individual culture when researchers investigate a nursing practice from these 4 viewpoints. We know that there has been already a concept called Culture Care (Leininger, 1992) which showed how to care people beyond the diversity and the universality of the traditional culture. On the other hand, Cultural Nursing is the culturally appropriate nursing which respects the difference of individual culture. References Masaki, H, Shimizu, Y, Tadokoro. Y, et al.
