In the Shinjuku Station West Exit Medical Relief Training, a disaster medical (triage) training that includes ordinary citizens as well as medical professionals has been conducted on a continual basis. However, updating and improving the training contents and maintaining the participants’ interest levels were challenged because there were no baseline evaluations on post-training accomplishments. The purpose of this study is to develop a training model which facilitate updates to the training contents in a sustainable manner and increase the number of participants by raising satisfaction levels. Peer evaluations and self-evaluations were introduced into the training framework to develop a training model that can be sustainably improved using scientific evaluation methods. The term “scientific” refers to introducing scientific methods to analyze training drills to increase the quantitative measurement of the participants’ post-training evaluations. This paper reports on the results of the actual implementation of the training model.
