the problem about the tarlac provincial hospital is one example regarding problems if LGUs are not prepared to accept responsibilities of running a hospital... there should be a agenda for the next congress about amendments of the local government code... if a undersecretary for health affairs is needed in the department of interior and local government.  the system of philhealth sharing should be should have a law and implementing rules and regulations.... so that other hands will not interfere very much in the sharing... it should be sharing, not the opposite...  :laugh2:

the situation in tarlac provincial hospital is not getting better... there should be an agenda for the next congress to maybe:

 

1.  introduce changes to the local government code or

 

2.  return health services under DOH management or

 

3.  appoint a DILG undersecretary for health affairs or

 

any other options?

there are some horror stories about malpractices in training hospitals in some local newspapers in cebu... this is also why it is also good to create the accreditation council for graduate medical education of the philippines...

part of the education of the doctor is specialty and post residency training programs.... it is a pity that while there is great need of sub-specialist service and skills by the citizens of this republic, there is not much recognition and support in their formation.  the stipend is very low.... it is about 15k to 25k a month.... and training period is about 2 to 4 years... it is highly competitive... some of the stipends come from pharmaceutical companies... everyone knows, it is hard to repay an " utang na loob".  the graduates of such programs don't have the desire to go back to public hospitals because of such sacrifices and costs that were incurred in the past.... i hope that there is some solution in sight for these problems... i hope that the accreditation council or the philippine medical residency council will be relevant to this situation.

there is a association in maritime medicine... it is an important consideration in our medical system.  our country is the one of the biggest exporter of maritime personnel around the world.

i think there should be discussion how much change will be in our medical system in a federal system of government... what are the changes and challenges to residency training and post graduate education programs in a federal system of government...

in the duterte administration, there is a chance to push for changes in the graduate medical education of our physicians... who will step up to take the challenge? what changes do we want to implement? is it time for another health summit?

i think there is a need to examine our medical education system if we let the cuban doctors work in the philippines because our doctors are not interested in public health service...

we have foreign doctors who are undergoing hospital residency in various hospitals in the philippines.  in doing so, they opened up a lot of issues and problems.  it is really time to have an institution or government body to supervise graduate medical education in the philippines.

the department of health has a roadmap for the 6 years of the duterte administration.  but our governors and mayors have only 3 years or less of plans to improve our health systems.  there is a clear gap between what the national would like to do  and what mayors and governors consider a priority in terms of health services.  at crossroads, these two should have some coherent and converging goals.  i am not sure what they are.  i am sure, these two don't know also... these two should have a health summit or meeting... hope we can pray for them.

i don't think specialization is a big factor in the mismatch in the distribution of health manpower... if doctors don't want to practice in public health or maybe in the LGU hospitals, there are reasons.... and the devolution process is one of the reasons... it is still there... there are a lot of papers and fora about it.. now is a time for action... there is a need for a call of action...

there should be a new rationalization program regarding our health manpower, now that going abroad is really getting more attractive... do we need to attract more people to primary health care?  do we need more subspecialists?

there is a move for federalism... there are a lot of views on federalism... one is that the federal government will assume the duties for health services... another is that the states will assume the duties for health services... how will these affect residency programs... how will federalism in its various forms affect the post graduate system in training health manpower?

if the sin taxes will be used for graduate medical education and for treatment of the effects of cigarettes and alcohol, i hope some portion will be used to fund the future accreditation council for graduate medical education of the philippines...

there is really some need to have an undersecretary in health affairs in the current DILG.  Most LGU have no plans for hospital management for the next 5 years beyond their terms.  a hospital is for sick people.  it might not have a purpose if the current mindset of our leaders is free clinics.  the undersecretary can set policy and make our LGU understand why there is need for hospitals especially with specialist services for everybody, not only for the poor... maybe for the mayor or governor also...

there is a trend among the specialty organizations that accreditation requirements for training programs are getting more difficult and there are more changes to come.  but some LGUs are not keen to adopt accreditation requirements that are required by specialty organizations.  this could be due to indifference or to lack of foresight.  some action should be taken... what action?  when will dialogue start?   :waiting:

there should be a common framework between the cme provided by the specialty organizations and the ones provided by universities and other institutions abroad... there should be an common framework where the accreditation council for graduate medical education of the philippines programs can meet prc requirements...

applying for post residency fellowships are getting difficult. i hope that for LGU hospitals, their graduates should have opportunity to go to fellowship so that the quality of services will be improved and this is one way to decongest the DOH hospitals.  hopefully with their own manpower the LGU will invest in health and it will be a win win situation for all stakeholders... i hope that the secretary of interior and local government will sit down with the secretary of health to discuss ways to improve the health system among LGUs.  i hope they can find common ground to increase slots for fellowship so that residency graduates from local government unit hospitals and devolved hospitals can get required training and skills and develop their own manpower to meet the needs of constituents...  :laugh2:

simulators are commonly used in surgery trainees and cardiology trainees... here is a paper that shows that it is useful in for training internal medicine interns and maybe residents...

Currently here in Singapore, a simulation centre is attached to every government restructured hospital!

Healthcare simulation is the future of medical education.

Medical and nursing graduates of the future would be required to pass their simulation modules even before they see their first patient.

 

I will be speaking at the upcoming PASSH-De la Salle healthcare simulation conference at DLSHI, Dasmarinas, Cavite this coming 11-13 May 2017.

I will post further details in the coming weeks.

thank you sir... with a simulator... mistakes are learning experiences and you can live to fight again in another day... you can use simulators... to take exams like the usmle... in the maritime field, simulators are extensively used... in the military, it is used also... (top gun anthem)... we can use this in the medical field also...  :laugh2:

there is a steady trend of doing primary health care in our health system.  but there is a need for trained manpower for primary health care because government is pouring money to universal health care...  i hope our specialty organizations will align some of the training programs to introduce their graduates in a primary health care system. the acccreditation council for graduate medical education of the philippines or the philippine medical residency council can help in this venture...
