::working with vulnerable people::

This is one of the workshops that I' ve chosen for the PPD Valuing Diversity programme. Every student was assigned with two workshops. The other other workshop that I got was Deaf Awareness, taken place to weeks ago, which was wonderfully interesting! This one, as I really keen in attending it, wanting to know what's in it...I am really satisfied and happy with what I've learnt just now. Some of the things raised in the workshop were important in building our character, I think, as doctor and more important as a human.

One of the things I've able to reflect on today, is the importance of being able to be professional at all times in our future career as we are going to meet so many people with so many different kind of problems, needs, personality and conditions. Things can be we pleasant, or the other way around. This is indeed the nature of dealing with man, I think. Humans are different! There are sometimes similarities, but there are most of the times differences that everyone have to learn to accept, cope and to an extent adapt with 'em.

We discussed on several situations that we, the future doctors, might encounter in the future. Most of 'em are scenarios where we have to deal with patients that are unacceptably rude, or irrational. At least to our personal perspective. The scenarios are those that the demonstrator had encountered, I think she's GP or may be a specialist, not sure because I was a little late for the session this morning and missed the intro part. But, the point is that, they are real life events. Possible and they had happened and will happened again to anyone, not exclusive to doctors only, but to everyone. The more you are dealing with people the more 'professional' that you have to be.

Well, I think the best reflective word that suits the character that I think we need is not really 'professional' but....hurm, what is it? There is no single ordinary word that can describe it actually. May be it is actually to be patient, sensible...all the character a man of believe should have. Astaghfirullah.. Really,  being a doctor is one of the career which I will see as many people who are indeed seeking for help. Seeking for support. Seeking for care. But, the main thing to reflect on is that what kind of support and what kind of care am I going to provide? It is just merely medical and psychological? It would really be a waste of life then. Not being able to spread the truth:


بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
وَالْعَصْرِ ﴿١﴾ إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ لَفِي خُسْرٍ ﴿٢﴾ إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ ﴿٣


I've learnt again today (again, and again and I reckon it will be more again in the future until I have really able to do this and practice it in my life!)... I learnt today, the importance to

'seek to understand, then to be understood'. 

Last week, my friend also point this out, but in a different way in a little bit ..she said, "Jangan memetik buah yang belum masak..." ie direct translation would sound as "Do not pluck fruits that are still unripe"...

and these are all about being patient and about being able to master your own self and to have believe in God, the Hereafter...
