Dr. Seike Presents during a Panel Discussion at the Kyoto Regional Comprehensive Care Course
As part of the Kyoto Regional Comprehensive Care Course “Living True to Ourselves Until the End of Life”, Dr. Aya Sike gave a talk during a panel discussion at the KBS Kyoto Hall on December 8th, 2017.
The course, sponsored by the Kyoto Regional Comprehensive Care Promotion organization, provides an opportunity for the community to think about and discuss what is necessary to continue living at home at an older age.
In the first part of the event, Prof. Yoshiyuki Kizawa (Palliative Care Professor, Kobe University Hospital,) gave a keynote lecture entitled, “What it Means to Live True to Ourselves”. During the panel discussion in the second part of the event, the panelists discussed various approaches people can take to begin organizing their thoughts about the subject. Dr. Seike discussed the importance of an “ending notebook” in which one writes about their personality, and what is personally important to reaffirm one’s values. She also suggested it may be meaningful to us to use the ending notebook as “a record of your own life and thoughts”.
