 At the beginning, Professor Kuniyoshi Takigawa, Department of Education, Department of Education, Kyoto Women's University, will give a lecture on the theme of "Current status and issues of educational support for high school students recuperating from illness."

 If high school students are hospitalized for a long time due to illness such as cancer, they may be forced to take a leave of absence from the school they are enrolled in or drop out of school.In the national government's "Fourth Stage Cancer Control Promotion Basic Plan" (March 4), as a measure to be taken for cancer patients of the AYA generation, such as children and high school students, "Patients who need education during medical treatment Developing an environment in which students can receive appropriate education, establishing a system for support for enrollment and return to school, etc., and grasping the actual situation in order to clarify issues regarding remote education using ICT.

Significance of Children's Participation in School Education from the Viewpoint of Medical Practice 

  Next, Mr. Mitsuru Miyaji, Lecturer, Department of Pediatrics, Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine, will give a lecture on the theme of "The Significance of Children's Participation in School Education from the Viewpoint of the Medical Field."

 The development of information and communication technology (ICT) has enabled simultaneous two-way distance learning, which is effective in ensuring learning opportunities for students who have difficulty commuting to school due to medical treatment.
 Especially for high school students, since it is not realistic to set up classes within the hospital, implementing remote education is extremely useful as a means of guaranteeing learning opportunities.The implementation of remote education not only makes it possible to advance to the next grade and graduate, but also has the effect of reducing feelings of alienation during medical treatment and reducing anxiety when returning to school.We can see a positive attitude toward treatment, and we will introduce the changes that the introduction of distance learning will bring to high school students undergoing medical treatment from a medical standpoint.
