Feed back:

- It was a graphic experience for me to understand the damage done by the bomb and to join inspections. I fully realized the meaning of the proverb, “Seeing is believing.”
   Nuclear bombings must not happen again. Despite the serious damage, people in Hiroshima worked out together for recovery. I was astonished by the people even doing research on it and managing such programs to make it widely known among the medical professionals around the world.

- I will impart the knowledge I learned through the training to staff members and my organization. In the case of executing medical care services for a patient related to radiation, I realize now that we should be more sensitive when managing patients including follow-up care.
   I also understood the importance of maintaining networks and sharing data between organizations.

- I could learn in detail about the situation after the bombing in Hiroshima. I have had unclear concerns relating to Fukushima, and now I can believe that people will be able to reconstruct the city. I will transfer the knowledge I learned through the training to my co-workers and people around me. At the same time, I will make use of myself in responding to disasters which may happen in Korea someday.

- The descriptions based on actual examples and detailed explanation on accumulated knowledge and experience were different from what we learned at home, and that was good for me. As I live in an area with nuclear facilities, it was beneficial for me to know more about the importance of lower radiation doses.
