Work that remains in impression until now?
It is to have been in charge of tuberculosis duties after the entering the agency for two years. In the prefecture, we devise Kumamoto tuberculosis measures plan and work with the goal of "taking medicine confirmation treatment conduct rate 95% or more for all tuberculosis patients". Tuberculosis is one of the main infectious diseases in the present age, and it is necessary to take 3-4 kinds of drugs as standard treatment for 6-9 months. We visited regularly to support taking medicine treatment of tuberculosis patient, and to instruct and confirmed the taking medicine situation and health condition on the telephone. Specifically, we planned related organizations and cooperation so that that solved to listen to anxiety and trouble, various thought while we talked with patient and family and performed calling at the time of visit and follow over telephone.
We were afraid and often thought whether own support was enough in the beginning whether the way of calling was not wrong, but were glad at all of internal use treatment being finished safely, and which "Okabe was charge and was enough" "not dying from patient and family when he/she did not come to already come to visit", and having had nadonoo words. Not only we supported from this, but also had power from people to be involved with adversely and realized importance of communication again.
Reason that wanted to be prefectural officials?
We were troubled to work as the municipalities health nurse who settled in area, but noticed that there was area that oneself did not know still more in Kumamoto either a lot when we thought to work in what municipalities.
We wanted to make Kumamoto who wanted to know charm of Kumamoto more since we were born and raised in Kumamoto better more and wished to join the prefecture.
Charm and worth doing of prefectural officials?
As we work by duties with various places of various fields, we can learn when there is various view, way of thinking. In addition, it always comes together with transfer, but as therefore there is encounter with new people, and there is good place again for each area if we go to the new workplace, we often know newly, and, speaking of prefectural officials, there is one side that it is a pleasure. We right think that what that "lifelong learning" is possible is big charm.
In addition, Health Prevention Section is the workplace which is easy to talk with senior and bosses very much let alone the young staff. It is not by duties and often swells in various stories, and it is proud one of me that was blessed with the good workplaces.
