The purpose of this study is to develop a computer support system for educating personnel who are involved in care management. We wish to develop a system in which know-how information can be shared. We consider that visualizing and showing care plans drawn up by experts in various forms allows a beginner to see the differences between their plans and an expert plan. Sharing know-how information is possible by recording, accumulating, and giving titles to what has been noticed in comparing documents. This function can visualize the similarities among documents that interpreted the results of an assessment, and can flexibly change different viewpoints. In order to promote user awareness, we mapped a user’s new document into a two-dimensional document space, and confirmed that the results of this mapping were appropriate.
