(Report) 2nd Series on EOL (End of life) Care discussion
The first seminar opened interactive dialogue and discussion on how to materialize ideal End on Life Care not only by recognizing “end of life” just prior to death but also to embrace the timeframe and overview process of death as an “end of life”. Dr. Hiroko Akimoto, who is a professional of gerontology (aging study) and a director “Hana-no-tani Clinic” (Flower-Valley clinic), Dr. Mami Itoh were invited as guest lectures.

Dr. Akiyama elaborated a contextual example of how to design a life for extended life span and how to make a decision for end of life. Dr. Itoh on the other hand, opened “Hana-no-tani Clinic” near the shore of South Bōsō, Chiba prefecture in order to provide medical care that free from the boundaries of out-patient, home care, or hospice. She talked about why clinic like “Hana-no-tani” was needed and how to provide not only medical care but also to deliver life support.
