Abstract : Exclusive breastfeeding has become one of the simplest methods to reduce childrenmortality and increase life expectation. Unfortunately, the prevalence of exclusive breastfeeding forIndonesia remains low. Refering to in-service training program under empowerment theory, education wasto enable knowledge development. The objective was to offer education model based on community needsassessment for the exclusive breastfeeding cadres. The research team used cross sectional and observationcoupled with sequential mixed methods. They collected data in Karanganyar District - Indonesia. Theyworked in two stages: (1) the model for cadres was designed from 5-12 September 2019 and (2) one-daytraining program was delivered in 22 September 2019. The community needs assessment was adopted fromCenters for Disease Control and Prevention model, including: Community member’s identification,curriculum and assessment, questionnaires development, websites selection, method and data collection, andinformant emancipation. Cadre learning model consists of two steps: self-directed learning and bestpractices group mentoring involved 34 participants. Qualitative data were collected with document review,interview, discussion, and observation. Quantitative data were collected with pre-test and post-test.Manuscripts capturing fact-findings were provided. Wilcoxon Z was to examine the differences betweenpre-test and post-test scores. Findings concluded that Community Needs Assessment Base Education Modelhave positive impacts, including: (1) significant contribution to the success stories of exclusivebreastfeeding program, (2) better teamwork among cadres for different villages, and (3) more skills andlonger days for the exclusive breastfeeding practices among mothers.

A brief chronological event provides an understanding of the first encounter of this pandemic into Malaysia. An extensive report on the enforcement protocol by the Government of Malaysia and Ministry of Health is shared in this article. University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) being the lead university hospital, documents its frontline experience. Thus, the aims of this article are to report incidence and demographic data of COVID-19 in Malaysia and secondly, to highlight measures taken in managing patients in a university hospital set up, University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC).

Abstract : The main objective of this study to evaluate of occupational Dose for Nuclear Medicine department staff in King Khalid Hospital at Najran during 2017 and 2019 and to compare the mean doses received with the limit of 20 mSv/year of the International Commission of Radiological Protection (ICRP). Radiation exposure of each staff member working in NM departments is routinely monitored using thermoluminescent dosimeter (TLD) and Ring TLD, tow dose quantities. Hp(10) and the Hp(0.07), are reported for each staff member, the staffs were divided into the 4 groups as NM physicians, NM technologists, medical physicist and nurses. The general result finding out of the study are The dose received by all the occupational workers was within the occupational dose limit of 20 mSv per year according to ICRP report.

Abstract : Oscillopsia is an illusion of an unstable vision causing the perception of to-and-fro movement of the environment. It is most commonly idiopathic. Aminoglycosides administration such as streptomycin generating toxic metabolites can cause oscillopsia. We report a case of a 36 years old Malay female with positive Mycobacterium tuberculosis polymerase chain reaction [PCR] who developed oscillopsia during the streptomycin administration. She described as feeling unsteadiness when walking without other otological symptoms. All the investigation results were normal. Conservative management were administered whereby stopping the streptomycin and vestibular rehabilitation was given. We aim to highlight the approach a managing oscillopsia caused by streptomycin in which a rare cause of oscillopsia.

Abstract : Generic medicines usage is obligated to be applied in all government healthcare facilities in Indonesia as it was re-enforced in the regulation by the Ministry of Health. The objective of this study was to assess beliefs and perceptions towards generic medicines among doctors in Yogyakarta. A cross sectional study was conducted using a validated custom questionnaire developed from previous similar studies. Medical doctors working in local hospitals and clinics were invited to involve in this study. All data were presented descriptively and analyzed by performing Chi-square test with p-values of <0.05 were considered to point out statistical significance. A total of 210 medical doctors succesfully participated in this study. Medical doctors believed that the price of generics medicines is lower than their brand name drugs (3.78 ± 0.97). They perceived that generic substitution will reduce illegal promotion practices from drug manufacturer companies (3.56 ± 0.78). Automatic substitution of original drugs by generics (i.e. by pharmacists) as a policy measure were supported by the participated doctors (3.45 ± 0.67). Medical doctors working in public hospital significantly showed a better score compared to another working site groups (p <0.001). Those with shorter working experience were more likely to have positive perception towards generics drugs (p <0.001). General medical doctors and those who work in rural area also demonstrated significantly better score than their specialist colleagues and those who work in urban area (p<0.001 for both variables). Generally, medical doctors’ perceptions towards generic medicines were positive. The results in this study indicate that several actions in order to maintain and develop more positive perceptions may be necessary. Further national initiative regulation and innovative interventions (i.e incentive plans for health care professionals, monitoring and evaluation plan for generics) are needed in order to support the rational use of generic medicines.
