The proud news now comes from the “The 2nd International Conference on Mining Occupational Safety and Health – International Commission on Occupational Health (MinOSH-ICOH) and The 13th Indonesian Occupational Medicine Update (IOMU)” in Bali, on 6-8 October 2019. The event that brought together academics and the medical profession became a stage of proof for the University of Indonesia (FKUI) Faculty of Medicine Student Muhammad Habiburrahman, S.Ked (FKUI Student Class of 2015) who won the “Best Oral Presentation” award. Habib presented his scientific work entitled “The Impact of Sleep Deprivation on Work Performance towards Night-Shift Workers: An Evidence-Based Case Report.”
The scientific work is part of the Evidence-Based Case Report (EBCR) when Habib and his three colleagues namely Fadhilah Harmen S. Ed, Elvira Lesmana S. Ed, and Nadya Gratia, S. Ed. Went through the preclinical phase in the Evidence-Based Medicine module with the guidance of Dr. dr. Listya Tresnanti Mirtha, SpKO.
“So the three of us are encouraged by our mentors to make publications and if possible take part in the conference. In the midst of busy co-ass work, Thanks God, we were able to register our long-abandoned work.
To be honest, this is beyond my expectations as an oral presenter. I did not target the scientific work to pass in the Oral Presentation category, maybe only Poster Presentation.
But thanks to the efforts, prayers, and support of our mentors, we were able to qualify in oral presentations and even won the Best Oral Presentation. Even more proud when I realized that the other participants were doctors while I was still in the co-ass phase, “Habib said proudly.
This scientific work explains the effect of sleep deprivation, both in terms of quality and quantity, on various work performance parameters of people who work night shifts.
In this case, it is illustrated that nurse patients who work night shifts often complain of symptoms of insomnia, difficulty concentrating, and even because they are too sleepy, they are punctured by needles. Of course, this is closely related to the lives of medical personnel who might decrease work performance due to the effect of lack of sleep.
“Based on the illustration of the case, we made this EBCR with the aim of investigating what things are affected and how the pathophysiological mechanisms of our body’s biological systems can explain these phenomena. In this EBCR work performance is affected one of which is work productivity and safety, “explained Habib.
Through his participation in the forum, Habib claimed to be proud of the achievements he achieved. Habib hopes that more FKUI students are eager to attend similar international conferences.
