Abstract

健康危機が発生した際の社会反応は,危機管理に携わる行政機関,企業,学識者等の予想に反して拡大することが多く,その状況を的確に把握する必要性がある.この反応の大きさを表す指標として,筆者らは,「新聞報道量」が最適な指標の一つであると考え,過去の研究においてそれを用いた指数を考案した.<br/> 本研究では,近年の主要な健康危機事件に関する新聞報道について,社会反応指数を用いて定量化した.また,これらの指数を比較し,各事件の社会反応の特性を分析した.その結果,感染症や食品に関する健康危機事件の値が高く,医療事故等の専門的な内容を含む健康危機事件の値は低い傾向があった.さらに,報道が継続する感染症関連事件と医療関連事件については,報道期間と反応の大きさで逆の傾向が見られた.国民にとって,より広範に影響する健康危機事件に対する反応が高くなる可能性が示唆された.

Sometimes social reaction to incidents with health and medical risks grows unexpectedly Especially for stakeholders gripping on risk management, such as the government, companies and experts, it is increasingly important to precisely grasp how people are responding to an incident. The author's past study, therefore, developed an index that shows the magnitude of the social reaction derived from the amount of the news paper reports. Quantitative analysis with identical index made comparative study possible, and usability of the index was validated.<br/> Comparative study was conducted to analyze the feature of social reactions towards different incidents using the index. Infection-related incidents and food-related incidents showed higher scores of the index, while incidents containing professional contents such as medical malpractice showed lower scores. And, infection-related incidents which are often reported continuously showed the opposite trend of the index from hospital-related incidents showed. The results showed that incidents related with people broadly can cause stronger social reaction.
