Proud supporters of Rugby World Cup 2023

Our goal is to facilitate the transfer of elite-level health, injury, and rehabilitation learnings to routine clinical practice. Leveraging this knowledge, in combination with the use of readily available imaging technology, clinical skills and experience, Canon Medical Systems and our partners develop knowledge and techniques allowing healthcare professionals to support sport enthusiasts to maximize their sporting enjoyment, whether amateur or professional, young or mature.

Shared values

Rugby teaches teamwork and develops the ability for mutual respect between athletes, understanding, and cooperation. Without these elements, it is not possible to achieve the collective success that underpins the sport. Good rugby is all about making quick decisions, using initiative, and interacting with people.

Solidarity By working together and supporting each other, hospital staff can create a culture of collaboration and teamwork that will enable them to tackle complex problems such as rising costs and staff shortages.
Tenacity Leveraging the determination to never give up inspires our audiences in navigating challenging times. Helping overcome financial challenges such as rising costs or physician burnout.
Passion By encouraging staff to pursue their passions and interests, hospital management can also reduce the risk of physician burnout and improve staff satisfaction.
Discipline By maintaining a culture of discipline and accountability, hospital management can also create a workplace that is free from distractions and unproductive behavior, allowing staff to focus on providing the best possible care.
Integrity With a commitment to honesty, ethical behavior, and treating each other with respect and empathy, hospital management can create a positive and supportive work environment that fosters collaboration and encourages open communication.

Parallels with healthcare

The parallels of these values within the healthcare environment are undeniable and provide lessons we can all learn from.
