'Feels like home'. That is how our students describe their feelings on staying at UniKL RCMP

Traditional and complementary medicines (TCM) are growing bigger and more advanced as modern medicines. Despite fulfilling the course requirements and objectives in producing good pharmacists, updating and upgrading students’ knowledge and practice of T&CM or alternative medicines will prepare them to be at par with the current and the latest practices in Malaysia. The exposure towards a real practice of T&CM will hopefully open up their views and perceptions in integrating T&CM with modern medicines to provide the best pharmaceutical care approach to the patients. This has also been told by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), as “For every illness, there is a cure.”

Hence, on 14th March 2019, fifty (50) students of Bachelor of Pharmacy (Year 2) accompanied by two (2) of their lecturers, Dr. Seow Lay Jing and Dr. Henny Rachdiati had visited Traditional and Complementary Medicine Unit, Hospital Kepala Batas. They were received and welcomed by Encik Iskandar Zulkarnain bin Hashim, medical assistant (MA), Hospital Kepala Batas. Later, Miss Teoh Yee Jie and Miss Hoo Shi Min (pharmacist in charge of T&CM unit) briefed the students on the roles and responsibilities of pharmacists in T&CM unit as well as highlighting the National T&CM policy in Malaysia before they proceed with their visit to the dispensary and T&CM unit (acupuncture and massage).

This visit was conducted as part of teaching and learning activities in the course of RPB 22402 - Traditional and Complementary Medicine (TCM). The visit was conducted to give exposure to T&CM practices that available in an Integrated Hospital in Malaysia since there is limited exposure given about this unit in Malaysia to the public.

Thus, it is suggested that the coordination of research and development efforts based on health needs must be strengthened in order to increase access to traditional medicines and health products. Hopefully, more exposure will be given to our students by conducting a similar visit so that our students will be able to manage different types of medicine in the future.
