Session presented on Saturday, March 18, 2017:
Most nursing curriculums include many courses spanning medical knowledge, technology, and nursing skills. However, our research has established that nursing students often show symptoms or signs of afflictions such as menstruation disorders, algomenorrhea, constipation, skin allergies, headaches, and so on. These symptoms or signs are known as the 'pre-disease' stage (i.e., the stage before an illness is diagnosed) in Oriental medicine in Japan. It is worthwhile to help nursing students recognize the influence of these symptoms or signs and then make efforts to improve them through their daily lives. Based on one major concept of oriental medicine, chronic diseases are considered to be the result of our physical condition becoming unbalanced and turning into health disorders. The purpose of the current research is to apply this concept to develop, and examine the effectiveness, of a program aimed at helping to improve the symptoms or signs in the 'pre-disease' stage of nursing students.
