Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to analyze why Japanese hospital volunteer groups are not utilized as much as they could be and why such services are not being expanded as in Canada and America. The conclusion is that it is due to the government’s lack of recognition of behavioral inefficiencies, contributing to the insufficient mobilization of volunteers into hospitals. While the government was eager to place volunteers, the hospitals were not able to make full use of them. This gap of information between the government and the hospitals is likely to have been responsible for the failure to successfully mobilize hospital volunteers in Japan.
