Taipei, 16 October – 10 November 2017. A total of 12 representatives of nurse managers, lecturers, professional organizations, and hospital policy makers throughout Indonesia passed the selection of Advanced Nursing Professional Training Program (ANPT) held by the College of Nursing Taipei Medical University (TMU), Taiwan. Isni Lailatul Maghfiroh., S.Kep., Ns., M.Kep, one of lecturer of nursing program from STIKES MUHAMMADIYAH Lamongan, was delegated to attend this training for 1 month. The training was consisted of 26 meetings combined with classroom trainings of TMU Hospital, Wan Fang Hospital, Shuang Ho Hospital, & Taipei city area. This training was held from 16 October 2017 to 10 November 2017.
The training began with an Opening Ceremony from TMU & from the Taiwanese Ministry of Health and then followed by an orientation and several scheduled activities. The purpose of the ANPT Program was to increase participants’ insights in the development of the health industry, especially in the field of nursing, cultural exchanges & field experiences in the health sector between Taiwanese & Indonesian nurses, increase insight into nursing administration in hospitals, increase insight & ability in OSCE & GOSCE in learning nursing and Long Term Care, and open up collaborations in continuing nursing studies to a higher level.
From this activity, several important points could be obtained, namely the need for continuity between nursing education and real efforts given to the community, educational methods in nursing should be carried out in a creative, innovative, measurable, and fun way as well as supported by adequate facilities to create competent nurse graduates. Most of the population of Taiwan was elderly (elderly) while the productive age of birth rate decreased. This has resulted in an increase in the need for labor from other countries, especially Indonesia to help overcome health problems, namely by bringing in competent resources, and Hospice. Palliative care was a scope that needed to be explored deeper & studied by nurses in Indonesia. “This is due to the increasing trend of chronic disease and life expectancy of the community” said Isni as one of the participants of the 2017 ANPT”.
