Abstract

Latar Belakang Indonesia menduduki rangking ke-5 dari 22 negara-negara yang mempunyai beban tinggi untuk TB dan memberikan kontribusi jumlah kasus TB di dunia sebesar 4,7%. Penatalaksanaan TB tidak mudah, membutuhkan waktu yang lama dan membutuhkan biaya yang besar. Saat ini berbagai rumah sakit menentukan tarif pelayanan berdasarkan metode DD. Perhitungan biaya satuan pada pelayanan kesehatan dapat juga dilakukan dengan menggunakan metode Activity Based Costing (ABC) yang didasarkan pada aktivitas. Tujuan mengetahui perhitungan unit cost dengan metode ABC dan metode DD di Instalasi Rawat Jalan dan Rawat Inap TB Paru Kategori 2 di Rumah Sakit Paru. Metode Penelitian deskriptif analitik menggunakan data sekunder dan metoda Pusposive Sample. Penelitian dilakukan di Rumah Sakit Paru Bandung selama bulan September sampai dengan Desember 2013 dengan menggunakan data rekam medis dalam kurun waktu 2 tahun yaitu pada bulan Januari 2011 sampai dengan Desember 2012. Hasil dan Diskusi perhitungan biaya satuan rata-rata dengan metode ABC untuk pasien rawat jalan TB kategori 2 sebesar Rp 611.321; untuk pasien rawat darurat TB kategori 2 sebesar Rp 713.852; untuk pasien rawat inap yang masuk melalui instalasi rawat jalan sebesar Rp 5.037.309 dan instalasi rawat darurat sebesar Rp 4.398.415. Biaya satuan rata-rata dengan metode DD untuk pasien rawat jalan TB kategori 2 sebesar Rp 421.621; untuk pasien rawat darurat TB kategori 2 sebesar Rp 734.170; untuk pasien rawat inap yang masuk melalui instalasi rawat jalan sebesar Rp 1.727.213 dan instalasi rawat darurat sebesar Rp 1.846.337.

Abstract

Perubahan paradigma sakit menjadi sehat, kuratif menjadi preventif dan berbasis komunitas menempatkan ilmu kesehatan masyarakat yang dikemas dalam Public Health Oriented Program (PHOP) sebagai materi yang sangat penting di Fakultas Kedokteran Unpad. Persepsi mahasiswa mengenai materi dalam kurikulum pendidikan dapat menggambarkan bagaimana efektivitas kurikulum tersebut. Atas dasar tersebut maka dilakukan penelitian tentang persepsi dokter internship FK Unpad mengenai manfaat PHOP pada saat mereka menjalankan internship. Penelitian deskriptif dilakukan terhadap 97 dokter Fakultas Kedokteran Unpad kelas reguler Angkatan 2007 dan 2008 (respons rate 74,2%), telah atau sedang melakukan program internship periode Juli–November 2014. Kuesioner yang telah diuji coba dan divalidasi, berisi 52 pertanyaan skala Likert, dikelompokkan menjadi 4 kelompok serta, disebarkan kepada responden menggunakan Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap). Pengambilan sampel menggunakan consecutive sampling. Data diolah menggunakan distribusi frekuensi dan narasi. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan sebagian besar responden menyatakan bahwa materi-materi yang terdapat di PHOP bermanfaat pada waktu internship, namun  beberapa topik kurang aplikatif, peranan mereka sebagai dokter fungsional, tidak diberi kesempatan untuk melakukan fungsi manajemen, preventif dan promotif di masyarakat. Dari hasil ini dapat disimpulkan, perlu ada penyesuaian materi lebih aplikatif, laboratorium khusus untuk PHOP, mendatangkan expert dari lapangan dan  wahana intership melibatkan dokter dalam bidang manajemen, preventif dan promotif di masyarakat.

Students’ perception of  the educational curriculum materials can describe the effectiveness of the curriculum. Based on this situation, the aim of this study was to describe the perception of doctors who participated in the internship program of the Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Padjadjaran on the benefits of PHOP. A descriptive study was carried out on 97 doctors of the Faculty of Medicine class 2007 and 2008 (response rate 74.2%) who had been and was involved in the internship program as participants. A validated questionnaire was used, containing 52 questions in Likert scale, divided into 4 groups of questions that was distributed to the respondents using Redcap (Research Electronic Data Capture). A consecutive sampling was used. The data was analyzed using frequency distribution and narratives.The results showed that most of the respondents stated that the materials in PHOP were very useful  during internship but some topics were  less applicable because the main role they played during internship was the role of a clinician and they were not given the opportunity to perform management, preventive and promotive functions in the community. From these results it can be concluded that there are needs for material adjustment towards more applicable, special laboratory activities for PHOP, inviting public health practitioners/experts to give lecture, and creating opportunities for the students to apply management, preventive and promotive actions during internship.

Abstract

Kebutuhan dokter untuk memenuhi pelayanan kesehatan primer di Jawa Barat sangat besar. Untuk itu Fakultas Kedokteran Universitas Padjadjaran (FKUP) yang terletak di Provinsi Jawa Barat mempunyai kontribusi yang besar dalam pemenuhan dokter. Kajian ini bertujuan mendapatkan gambaran ekspektasi lokasi dan tempat bekerja lulusan dokter FKUP yang dapat digunakan untuk pengembangan kurikulum sehingga memenuhi kebutuhan (need) pelayanan kedokteran dan kesehatan di masyarakat. Metode yang digunakan adalah cross sectional dengan subjek 156 peserta didik P3D tahap dua Angkatan 2000 - 2001 FK Unpad. Data dikumpulkan melalui angket/kuesioner kemudian dilakukan analisis deskriptif menggunakan distribusi frekuensi. Hasil kajian adalah kontribusi FK Unpad dalam menyumbangkan sumber daya manusia di sarana pelayanan kesehatan primer bagi Jawa Barat hanya 30–40%. Sebagian besar (75,64%) peserta akan bekerja terlebih dahulu, namun selanjutnya sebagian besar (97,46%)  akan melanjutkan pendidikan spesialisasi (81,69%). Hal ini menunjukkan bahwa peserta tidak berminat, bekerja hanya sementara di pelayanan primer sehingga mengakibatkan masalah besar dalam kesinambungan program kesehatan serta inefektif dan inefisiensi dana untuk pelatihan. Spesialisasi yang paling diminati adalah 4 bidang utama yaitu ilmu penyakit dalam, ilmu bedah, ilmu kesehatan anak dan ilmu kebidanan. Di pihak lain magister rumah sakit menjadi peminatan dengan proporsi terbesar diikuti dengan magister kesehatan masyarakat, hukum kesehatan, dan Ekonomi kesehatan. Kesimpulan: Fakultas Kedokteran Unpad perlu memberikan prioritas kepadacalon mahasiswa yang berasal dari Jawa Barat agar dapat berkontribusi dalam memenuhi kebutuhan dokter di Jawa Barat dan perlu pengembangan kurikulum pendidikan dokter agar lebih menarik, sehingga para calon dokter ini bersedia untuk tetap bekerja di sarana pelayanan kesehatan primer.Kata kunci: Peserta didik, pelayanan kesehatan primer, pelayanan kesehatan sekunder, pendidikan spesialisasi, pendidikan magister, kedokteran keluargaFUTURE PLAN OF FINAL SEMESTER MEDICAL STUDENTS, FACULTY OF MEDICINE UNIVERSITY PADJADJARAN YEAR 2000–2001The need of doctors which worked at the primary health centers in West Java was high. Faculty of Medicine Universitas Padjadjaran (FKUP) had the responsibility to fulfill the scarcity of doctors in West Java. The aim of this study was to know the expectation of work location of medical doctors “ to be “so that the faculty could develop the medical education currículum that fulfill the community needs. This study was a cross sectional study with 156 final semester medical students year 2000 – 2001, using questionnaire and analyzed by frequency distribution. The results were the contribution of FKUP to fulfill the health workforce in West Java is only 30 – 40% .Most of the students planned to work first (75.64%), but after that, most of them (97.46%) planned to continue their study especially for specialization (81.69%). This situation had an negative impact on the continuity of health programs for the community (primary care), because there would be always new doctors who would work at the primary health centres. The most interested specializations were internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, obstetric-gynaecology. On the other hand, students who chose master program, were interested to study hospital administration/management and health management, health law and health economics. The reasons they wanted to work first were mostly to get experiences (35.18%) and to collect money for further study (32.16%). Most of the respondents planned to work at primary health center 26.72% mostly puskesmas and secondary health center (20.61%). Other choices were working at Industries and Non Governmental Organizations.  Conclusions: FKUP gives more opportunity for students from West Java studying at FKUP so that in the future they could fulfill the scarcity of doctors in West Java. Secondly medical curriculum must be developed so that the doctors “to be” are more interested to work at the primary health centers permanently.Key words: Final semester medical students, primary health center, secondary health center specialization, master program DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.15395/mkb.v41n1.179

Abstract

Lupus eritematosus sistemik (LES) merupakan penyakit autoimun kronik yang mengharuskan penyandangnya minum obat dalam waktu lama bahkan seumur hidupnya. Keadaan ini selain menimbulkan dampak fisik, psikis maupun sosial juga menyebabkab biaya tinggi sehingga LES digolongkan sebagai penyakit catastrophic. Ketidakpatuhan minum obat penyandang LES akan berpengaruh langsung terhadap memburuknya outcome penyakit lupus. Penelitian bertujuan mengeksplorasi pelaksanaan dan kepatuhan minum obat pada pasien LES dengan harapan terjadinya perbaikan penatalaksanaan LES yang berdampak pada peningkatan kualitas hidup serta penurunan angka kematian karena LES. Telah dilakukan penelitian kualitatif terhadap 6 informan pasien LES suku Sunda di klinik reumatologi RSUP Dr. Hasan Sadikin Bandung pada bulan Juli sampai September 2016 dengan menggunakan pedoman wawancara mendalam open question yang dikembangkan sesuai dengan jawaban informan. Paradigma penelitan adalah constructivism dengan triangulasi terhadap 2 orang keluarga pasien dan 3 dokter konsultan klinik reumatologi RSUP Dr. Hasan Sadikin Bandung. Data yang diperoleh dianalisis secara bertahap melalui proses transkripsi, reduksi, koding, kategorisasi, penyusunan tema, interprestasi data serta pembangunan konsep. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan ada 57 koding, 14 kategori, dan 3 tema yang mengarah kepada kepatuhan minum obat pasien LES. Ke-14 kategori kepatuhan tersebut terdiri dari: karakteristik individu, daya ingat, pengetahuan, eksperimen, dan manajemen konsumsi (faktor predisposing); karakteristik penyakit, karakteristik obat, biaya, kebijakan rumah sakit, akses ke rumah sakit, terapi alternatif dan enabler agent (faktor enabling); karakteristik tenaga kesehatan dan dukungan eksternal dari berbagai pihak (faktor reinforcing). Konsep dan konstruk yang ditemukan membangun konstruk lokal Jawa Barat berlatar belakang karakteristik masyarakat Sunda dan bersifat kontekstual terhadap penyakit lupus.Kata kunci: Kepatuhan minum obat, lupus eritematosus sistemik, odapusDrug Adherence Drug in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Patients in Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital BandungSystemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease that requires prolonged treatment.

Abstract

Background: Healthcare is financially inaccessible to some people. This results in deterioration of patients’ condition or even death, which is proven by the high level of Maternal Death Rate in Indonesia. The government implemented the National Health Coverage (NHC) system to ensure the provision of quality health care for the entire community. This study aimed to examine the NHC and non-NHC patients’ perception to quality maternal healthcare services.Methods: This study was an analytic cross-sectional study conducted from August–October 2014. One hundred and twenty six respondents from Kota Bandung Mother and Child Hospital were included. The tool used in this study was a validity and reliability-tested questionnaire encompassing five dimensions of service quality: tangibles, reliability, responsiveness, assurance, and empathy. The Kolmogorov-Smirnov test was used to test the hypothesis.Results: The study showed that the majority of NHC(75%) and non-NHC patients (89%) ware unsatisfied with the maternal healthcare services. Most patients felt unsatisfied towards the reliability dimension which involved complicated referral procedures and examination time that failed to comply with what was promised.Conclusions: There is no difference between NHC and non-NHC patients’ level of satisfaction of maternal health care service in Bandung Mother and Child Hospital.
