Abstract

Abstract -- The aim of this paper is to analyse the “Specific Procedure Training Course System,” which was introduced in 2015 to satisfy increasing healthcare demand in Japan. The policy was analysed through utilisation of Walt and Gilson’s policy triangle. Consequently, it was determined that to improve the systemwe should: 1) establish a responsible regional organization for satisfying holistic care demands, 2) respect nursing educators’ autonomy for curriculum development for future nursing provision, 3) assure freedom of learning areas to adjust nursing knowledge and techniques for patients’ needs, 4) reduce the financial burden for lifelong learning, 5) introduce a flexible role shift system without the requirement for law modification to accommodate constant technological development, and 6) innovate a new affordable/sustainable reimbursement scheme, encompassing a direct payment system for direct care providers. However, further research is required to identify concrete policy approaches and measure outcomes.
