  • A Comparative Study about Views on Life and Death
    keyword : Bioethics & Medical Ethics
    2007.02~2020.03An international comparative study on the social and clinical adaptation of new reproductive(in vitro fertilisation)techniques by the legislation in Germany and the United Kingdom. This study describes characteristics of two laws legislated on in vitro fertilisation(IVF)techniques in two nations. In Germany,the bioethical committee replied the report in 1985 to the government. A chairperson of the committee,Mr Ernst Benda who was a former chief justice of the Supreme Court of Germany,played a role as a father of the new legislation enacted in 24 October 1990. From that time, namely human embryos were protected by the law as a human being. However, the social and clinical adaptation of IVF techniques utilizing with donor's gametes and the surrogacy were completely prohibited. On the other hand,in the United Kingdom, the act was enacted in 1 November 1990,depending upon the report of committee chaired by Professor of Ethics, Dame Mary Warnock of University of Cambridge. The British law also prevented the rights of human embryo as a human being, although it was presented to allow scientific experimentations using human embryo until the 14th day of gestation. The utilization of donor's gametes,however, for IVF techniques was not limited to clinical adaptation only when the consent between donors of gametes and recipients was obtained. Instead, the disclosure of information of the donor to the children born by the technique was made to be responsible on the nation's behalf. In light of this internatinal comparative study between two nations, a hypothesis concerning the social and clinical establishments of bioethical issues and the legislation on the mordern reproductive techniques in Japan is discussed further..

Current and Past Project
  •  The first objective of this paper is to utilize old historical materials in education today. Currently, education in medical ethics is conducted using mostly textbooks, as well as lectures and discussions on DVD. The objectives of learning medical ethics include: to come to understand ethical issues in medicine; to be able to perform ethical analysis and inference; to acquire the disposition and attitude of an expert; and to see things from the patients’ perspective and sympathize with them. The collection, preservation, and organization of the vast accumulation of unsorted rare books and historical material held by the Kyushu University Graduate School of Medical Sciences is expected to lead to further developments not only in medical history, but also in medical ethics and interdisciplinary research; this information will presumably be disclosed using the information resource management system applied by the Kyushu University Institutional Repository (Q IR). This paper introduces (a portion of) the research results of the 2011-12 Grants -in-Aid for Scientific Research (Kakenhi) / Grant-in-Aid for Exploratory Research project entitled “Historical Materials Research at the Kyushu University Graduate School of Medical Sciences: Construction of New Educational Methodology in Medical Ethics” (Title Number 23650563). The ultimate aim is to construct a new educational methodology connecting present-day researchers to old historical materials that have never seen the light of day.

2.    This thesis proposes a new method of education in Bioethics and Medical Ethics. It is based on good use of a lot of old valuable materials Kyushu University has.Today, lectures and discussions are the most common ways of education in class. However, I realized some of my students, having got a chance to see and read a lot of old materials that are usually shelved, not only showed a great interest in them but also got some new ideas for study from them. Then, I got an idea of this new educational method by putting QIR (Kyushu University Institutional Repository) to good use. The QIR system was a great help. It enabled me to know such rare, precious and valuable books and materials ever seldom used. It may help me to clarify how to deal with those old materials, how to use them in class, and so on.

4. For medical doctors and nurses,truth telling of fatal disease,such as cancer,to the patient or family is always a painful and ambivalent task. Willing of accepting truth telling may depend on personality of individuals,but it can be affected by culture or common views of society as well. This article analyses how and why different acceptance of truth telling is observed in different countries.We conducted two questionnaire survey for university students in Korea in 2006,and in Japan and China in 2008.The students were asked wheter they want to be informed their own disease,and whether they want their family to be informed of the truth in a hypothetical situation that respondents or their family had a cancer..
