What is “St. Luke’s Health Navigation Service Spot:Luke-Navi?”
“St. Luke’s Health Navigation Service Spot:Luke-Navi” is a health information-related research project.
This project concerns a partnership between citizens and healthcare professionals, with citizens taking the leading role to achieve a society of “people creating their own health themselves,” by a system called, “People-Centered Care.”
The reason why we set this goal of “people creating their own health themselves,” is that we believe that the “will to cure or prevent one’s own disease oneself” is at least as important as the treatment one receives at a hospital when it comes to the actual prevention or recovery of disease. People therefore have to gather the information applicable to their own case from the huge amounts of available information, read and interpret the information, and choose the information they need for decision-making. Most people find this process quite challenging. At “Luke-Navi” we listen to everyone’s daily problems with, or concerns about, maintaining health, we search the necessary information, and then also help to interpret the information and apply it to decision-making.
Luke-Navi is thus a spot where health information can be navigated.
Services provided are mainly “health consultations,”“health checkups (physical measurements),”“information search using the internet or literature,”“mini health lectures” and “mini concerts.”
