On April 18th, MECO MMSA UMY held a Collaborative Health Day (COHEAD) activity. Collaborative Health Day (COHEAD) is an Interproffessional Education (IPE) training activity aimed at first and second year students from doctoral education, dentistry, nursing and pharmacy study programs, FKIK UMY. The background for the implementation of this activity was due to the low knowledge of students about the role of each existing health profession, this was due to the lack of the role of stakeholders in implementing IPE, especially in early level students of FKIK UMY. So, by holding this project, it is hoped that students will be able to recognize the role of their profession as well as the roles of other professions as health workers who will later form a team to improve the service of health workers in Indonesia.
the COHEAD project was held for one day, and prior to project implementation, internal training was carried out to provide knowledge to MECO members about Interprofessional Education (IPE) by Medical Education Trainers (MET).
Because the project was held in the middle of a pandemic, COHEAD 2021 had to be carried out online through the Zoom Meeting platform. This activity begins with a grand lecture agenda, which is the presentation of material by dr. Ika Setyawati, M.Sc. regarding IPE in general to four professions. After that, it was continued with a small class session where students were divided into breakout rooms, and each breakout room was filled with a mentor per study program to explain the role of the profession in cooperation between professions. After the small class session, students were again divided into breakout rooms together with other study programs to carry out a small working group, students from the four professions discussed the material that had been provided through the five steps method.
The implementation of COHEAD 2021 was welcomed by the Medical Education Unit (MEU) and was also welcomed by students, as evidenced by the enthusiasm of registrants who exceeded the target of 46 registrants. Hopefully the holding of COHEAD 2021 will be able to introduce and provide earlier knowledge about IPE to early level students of FKIK UMY.
