The rapid technology development requires the ability to adapt to technological changes for people, including doctors, to face Industry 4.0.
“The industrial revolution demands us to be adaptive to technological changes and be able to apply it in every line of professional services, including doctors,” said Dean of Faculty Medicine, Public Health, and Nursing UGM, Prof. dr. Ova Emilia, M.Med.Ed., Ph.D., Sp.OG (K), while inaugurating 51 new doctors at the campus, Thursday (10/25).
Ova said doctors ought to prepare for every change properly. One of them is by carrying the determination to be knowledgeable, in order to drive the process of self-learning to maintain high-quality individuals. Furthermore, she urged the new doctors to always work based on the system.
Cross-sectoral cooperation through the concept of Interprofessional Collaboration (IPC) as a learning resource, said Ova, can act as a bond of power to realize a healthy Indonesia. The next is upholding moral and Indonesia’s service ethics.
“Whichever technology you choose to promote health services, you still have to uphold the principle of humanity,” she said.
Meanwhile, Head of Yogyakarta Health Department, drg. Pembajun Setyaningastutie, M.Kes., asked the new doctors to better understand government policies and programs in health development. Doctors also need to strive for a preventive promotive approach to solving health problems in the community.
She also asked them to maintain work ethics and carry out professional development continuously. This is because professional development is essential to align Indonesian health workers with foreign health workers.
