We arrived at Pejabat Kesihatan Daerah Kuala Muda at 830am, and was invited into the meeting room.
Had a short briefing by Mr. Chong, the Penolong Ketua Pegawai Perubatan (I think) on the overview of healthcare in Kuala Muda district (Pusat Kesihatan Daerah, PKD Kuala Muda), and also the mission and vision of Ministry of Health Malaysia (Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia, KKM). I will try to attach the powerpoint files if i find the way to 🙂
The organizational chart of PKD Kuala Muda.
The various districts in Kedah
Received our schedule for the 2 weeks
Had another short lecture by Matron Shadah in the afternoon about Maternal and Chile Health.
(Powerpoint to be attached later)
Next we went to the LPPKN (Lembaga Penduduk dan Pembangunan Keluarga Negara) which is situated right next to the Kuala Muda DHO.
This institute is in charge of family planning which teaches couples about contraceptive methods and spacing between children as a step of proper family planning.
We have learnt about the overview of healthcare system and services in Kuala Muda and the various health clinics (Klinik Kesihatan, KK) in this district which is a 2 tier based system.
I will update the details of our taklimat from time to time.
