AAHCI-SEA Webinar | Mental Health of Healthcare Workers
AAHCI SEA regional office host Universitas Indonesia (FMUI ) organized a Webinar on “Mental Health of Healthcare Workers (HCWs) during COVID-19”. As we’ve seen globally, the spread of the novel coronavirus has challenged many nations and healthcare systems. One under-recognized and unaddressed area is that of the mental health issues that healthcare workers (HCWs) face on the frontline. HCWs, despite remaining the crisis management personnel on the frontline, are not themselves immune to the psychological consequences such as inadequate support, the feeling of burnout, inadequate PPEs, etc. This webinar discusses the challenges and lessons learned on this global issue from AAHCI members in the Southeast Asia region, with shared input from Mexico.

Designing Technology Enhanced Learning in Medical Education
November 5, 2018 (Indonesia)
There is a growing number of application, information, and communication technologies in higher education in order to enhance both teaching and the student learning experience. The potential benefits of technology-enhanced learning (TEL) in medical education consist of efficiency in terms of cost, time, and sustainability, as well as enhancement in processes and outcomes, and a transformation of positive attitudes toward teaching and learning practices.
How can we design technology that enhances learning? How can we measure that enhancement? What is the added value for the learner and teaching experience? These questions were discussed during this special webinar session as part of the 3rd International Conference and Exhibition on Indonesian Medical Education and Research Institute (ICE on IMERI) 2018. The theme of the webinar session was “Designing Technology Enhanced Learning in Medical Education,” which addresses issues on e-portfolio, high vs. low fidelity simulation-based learning, and virtual reality in learning anatomy.

Globalization undeniably affects many aspects of the health sector around the world. Consequently, academic health centers and health systems can play a great role in improving the well-being of people around the globe. Academic health systems should be enabled to interact via an international organization of some sort, which, in turn, would allow academic health centers to collaborate on a global level in order to address health-related issues internationally.
