A Qualitative Study on the Perspective and Teaching Practice of Novice Lecturers in a Paramedic Course

Abstract

Objective: The study aimed to obtain the perspective and teaching practice of novice lecturers serving at the training institutions, Ministry of Health Malayisa (MOH).
Method: A qualitative research was conducted on four novice lecturers at the  Medical Assistant College, Seremban. Data were obtained from interview and observation on their teaching in the lecture rooms.  The data analysis was performed by using Nvivio 9 software.
Result: In the aspect of the teaching perspective, the finding showed that there were two main themes; teaching concept and the teaching method. As far as the teaching concept concerned, respondents perceived  that lecturers were the source of knowledge and those who transfered the knowledge to the students.  Meanwhile, the second perspective related to the teaching approach in which lecturers need to use their experiences, they need to be knowledgeable and creative in their teaching. The integration of the themes  formed the main perspective, which was the lecturer-centered teaching.  In turn, in the teaching practice, it was consistent with their perspective whereby the approach of teaching is lecturer-centered.
Conclusion: This study showed that new lecturers would employ the lecturer-centered approach.   Apart from that, they were also lacking of the skills in terms of class control and value inculcation.   The deficiency in both these aspects needs to be overcome as it can affect the effectiveness of the teaching, also the quality of the graduates produced.

Abstract

The aim of the study was to obtain student' perspectives on the clinical practice on the Diploma in Medical Assistant (DMA). The study design was cross-sectional survey performed in the Medical Assistant College, Seremban Malaysia. A self-administered questionnaire was used to 67 fourth-semester students who have undergone clinical practice in several hospitals in the state of Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. Data were analysed descriptively as to gain the students’ perspectives in the aspects of confidence, clinical learning and the use of clinical equipment. The study outcome showed that there were a degree of concern among the students who undergo the clinical practice. Other than that, there were several issues that emerged in the clinical implementation which was the gap that exists between theory and practice such as the different equipment used in the college compared to the clinical placement where they were assigned. Practical exposure in college needs to be optimised so that it can enhance students’ confidence before they undertake clinical practice. Other than that, the implementation of theoretical teaching and practice should be integrated as to prevent the gap from forming between theory and practice.

The Integration Theory and Practice of Paramedic Curriculum

Abstract

The gap between theory and practice has been a critical issue in medical education.  Past studies have shown  that the gap between theory and practice is a result from the non-existent integration between theory and practice. This article seeks to discuss how integration between the two can be enhanced in the  paramedic curriculum of the Ministry of Health Malaysia.  There are 7 main factors that have been discussed namely the curriculum model, organisation and the content of theory and practice, teaching methodology, assessment criteria, the role of the lecturer, the role of the service staff and hidden curriculum


    Index Terms- The gap between theory and practice, the integration between theory and practice, paramedic course.

SERANTA AWAM ATAS TALIAN BAGI CADANGAN PENGGUBALAN RANG UNDANG-UNDANG PENOLONG PENGAMAL PERUBATAN



SERANTA AWAM ATAS TALIAN BAGI CADANGAN PENGGUBALAN RANG
UNDANG-UNDANG PENOLONG PENGAMAL PERUBATAN


YBhg. Tan Sri/Puan Sri/Dato’/Datin/Tuan/Puan,

Selamat Sejahtera dan Salam 1 Malaysia,

Sukacita dimaklumkan bahawa Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia sedang menggubal Rang Undang-Undang Penolong Pengamal Perubatan yang baru bagi mengawal selia amalan penolong pengamal perubatan. Ini berikutan Akta Pembantu Perubatan (Pendaftaran) 1977, [Akta 180] yang telah berkuatkuasa hampir 35 tahun didapati tidak lagi menepati keperluan semasa.

Skop Akta 180, adalah terhad kepada penubuhan Lembaga Pembantu Perubatan (Pendaftaran), pendaftaran dan pembaharuan pendaftaran penolong pegawai perubatan sahaja. Tidak terdapat peruntukan mengenai:

(a)    Komposisi, fungsi dan kuasa Lembaga yang tidak disenaraikan dengan terperinci;
(b)    Penubuhan jawatankuasa tertentu bagi membantu Lembaga melaksanakan fungsi dan kuasanya;
(c)    Penubuhan jawatankuasa khusus untuk memastikan taraf latihan penolong pegawai perubatan sentiasa berada ditahap yang tinggi;
(d)    Pendaftaran penolong pegawai perubatan yang mempunyai latihan lanjutan dalam bidang pengkhususan;
(e)    Bidangkuasa tatatertib; dan
(f)    Penguatkuasaan

Justeru itu, Akta 180 perlu dibuat penambahbaikan bagi memperkukuhkan undang-undang sedia ada selaras dengan perkembangan dan keperluan semasa. Penambahbaikan ini adalah penting bagi memastikan amalan yang diberikan oleh penolong pengamal perubatan adalah berkualiti dan kompeten demi memelihara keselamatan orang awam.

Satu borang tinjauan akan  disiarkan secara atas talian di laman web Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia diwww.moh.gov.my selama 14 hari bermula bermula pada 29 Oktober 2012 sehingga 11 November 2012. Sehubungan itu Kementerian Kesihatan mengalu-alukan sebarang cadangan dan komen yang boleh disalurkan melalui ppp.bap@moh.gov.my sebelum/pada 11 November 2012.

Kerjasama dalam memberikan pendapat mengenai perkara di atas adalah amat dihargai.

Sekian, terima kasih.
