Health Administration and Policy
- TSUJI, Ichiro
Department of Health Administration & Policy was established in 1952. Prof. Koinuma (1990- ) energetically constructed a new approach for medicine in this dynamic period in 21st century. Principal research themes currently headed up by the Department are as follows: Economic evaluation of cancer screening promotion and quality assessment of cancer diagnosis and treatment.; How to minimize economic burden of the patients with cancer ? ; Place of death of cancer patients and access to home care services ; Patient survey using FACIT-SP and telephone interviewing to the physician.; How to change clinical performance to improve the quality of care, patient safety and the efficiency of hospital ?
The Department offers Master's and Doctoral programs（present enrolment:17 students）. The programs prepare students for fundamental skills of economic analysis, policy making and the management of various types of health care facilities. We serve the secretariat of WHO-Collaborating Center for Well-being in Aging from 1991.
