Japan Calling – Jejson selected for exciting knowledge-exchange programme in the ‘Land of the rising sun’!
Congratulations to our Clinical Quality Manager, Jejson Jose, who’s been selected to attend a two week ‘Young Leaders’ development programme to take place in Japan in February 2018.
As a leading provider of services to older people, the Foundation was invited by the Office for Seniors to submit a nominee for the programme, which is to be funded by the Japanese government. The opportunity constitutes the return leg of an exchange visit, which last month saw the Office for Disability Issues and the New Zealand Disability Support Network hosting a delegation of young leaders from Japan working in the disability sector.
The programme has been established to create a cohesive society by bringing young leaders together working in the areas of disabilities, older people and youth to learn from each other, engage in joint problem-solving, consider different cultural perspectives and build leadership potential. Japan is one of a number of countries that are considered progressive and innovative in their approaches in these fields.
A Registered Nurse, Jejson has been working for the Foundation for five years in a variety of clinical roles, including as one of our Bureau nurses, as a Clinical Coordinator and, currently, as our Clinical Quality Manager for residential care. A member of our Clinical Governance Group, he works closely with the clinical staff across our care homes and hospitals, ensuring that residents receive the highest level of care at all times.
