About Me

I'm a senior consultant paediatric surgeon and head of paediatric surgery at UKM Medical Centre. I was involved in the development of PERMATA Children's Hospital UKM. We are committed to provide child and family- friendly environment for all our paediatric patients. I have 2 MOOCs and I have excellent team members for these courses from various disciplines. For The Child and Family Friendly Healthcare Practices, my team members have completed the training of trainers course organised by Child Life Council USA in 2016. In fact since 2012, with the help of my close friend-Professor Dr. Zarina Abdul Latiff (Senior Consultant Paediatrician and was also a key-member of the PERMATA Children's Hospital UKM Project) , we organised annual Child-Friendly and Child-Safety Workshops to empower the children of various age and our medical students to be exposed to values related to Child-Safety and Child-Friendly. We are committed to empower our nurses, doctors and health personnel. For the 2nd MOOC on Patient Safety and Training Against Medical Errors, I have team members from Department of Paediatrics (Prof Zarina and Prof Bilkis), Obs&Gynae (Prof Shuhaila), Surgery (myself), Internal Medicine (Prof Norlaila), Family Medicine (Prof Aznida Firzah) and Medical Education (Dr. Siti Mariam and Dr. Mohammad Arif Kamarudin). We have successfully taught the undergraduates Year 3, 4 and 5 of UKM medical students on this very important topic using the new nomenclature since 2015. The awareness level is highler amongst them and we hope more students will find this training useful for their career in medical field. Do Join Us!
