Visit to Udayana Univ

I had a lecture of interprofessional care for the elderly as a faculty development in Udayana University, Bali, Indonesia. Indonesia has only 6% of aged population (in Japan 28%!). Since the percent of the aged in Bali island is 4th highest areas in this country, they showed an interest in this topic.

I also held a VBP workshop. This uses simulated interprofessional conference so all the materials were translated into English. Most said the workshop was difficult to simulate due to their lack of several professionals in the university, such as occupational therapist or social worker. I had a reflection that I should have done more information gathering beforehand. Anyway both thought that collaboration between us will be important to expand the diversity of the aged care.

We continue to keep our relationship in different activities with Udayana University.
