V O L U M E 2 6 I S S U E 1 - 2 M A H L A P N E W S L E T T E R P A G E 3 First eHealth Summit 2014 By: Gladys Joy Entico The Philippines just had its 1st eHealth Summit last February 4, 2014 at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila hosted by the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (PCHRD) of the Department of Science and Technology and the Department of Health. This event with theme, "eHealth Innovations for Universal Health Care" became a platform for exchange of information and expertise on what has been done and what is currently being done on eHealth in the country. Also, the forum became a venue for presenting the Philippine eHealth Plan and Deliverables that gathered stakeholders' inputs to achieve the vision of widespread access to health care services and health care information in support of a safer, better, more equitable and responsive health system. I learned so many things from this summit, especially its development and implementation plans. I admired the presentations of Dr. Kimura and Dr. Kobayashi detailing their experience in Japan when they had to restore their medical records system after the great earthquake and tsunami last 2011. I was visiting exhibits when I saw this display of St. Luke's! Amazing! So they have online results, online room reservation, and even online payment! All their programmers are Filipinos! Such a huge step towards eHealth St. Luke's!!! I also learned of the tracking system being used by TMC regarding compliance with hand washing techniques. All their healthcare staff have badges on their suits which beeps whenever they enter a patient's room without performing the necessary hand washing techniques. This serves as a constant reminder for them to always sanitize themselves while inside the Hospital premises I was already drooling listening to their demo! Lastly, I enjoyed the powerbank giveaway! The hosts are really generous. The summit is free, the giveaways are bongga!!!

P A G E 4 M A H L A P N E W S L E T T E R V O L U M E 2 6 I S S U E 1 - 2 32nd Anniversary of PCHRD and PAMJE General Assembly From the Blog of Mr. Joseph M. Yap A huge number of participants flocked for the 32nd anniversary of the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (PCHRD). The theme evolved on "The Filipino Crises Resilience: Connecting Health R&D and Emergency Health Management." Present during the opening ceremonies were Dr. Jaime C. Montoya, Executive Director of PCHRD, Usec. Teodoro J. Herbosa, representative of DOH Secretary Enrique T. Ona and Sec. Mario G. Montejo of DOST. Governor Jose Ma. Clemente "Joey" S. Salceda was invited to deliver his keynote address. Gov. Salceda's speech is a mix of best practices with lots of wit and humor. The province of Albay boasts its core philosophies of: culture of reduction, rights-based, goals oriented and, society, government and budget as a whole. Albay is truly an epitome where good governance exists. Governor Salceda is recognized as the First Senior Global Champion on Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation by the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction. He is a believer that emergency response should be fast and efficient to attain a noda ma g e, no -c a su al t y sit u at io n . Pr o per implementation of guidelines and budget planning are the keys to a successful emergency response. I think that Gov. Salceda could be a strong contender for presidency if he will be given a chance. Usec. Teodoro J. Herbosa also presented the e-Health Development Plan and Deliverables for 2016. In the afternoon session, we listened to the session on Dementia and HIV. Presenters were Dr. Edsel Salvaña (research on HIV), Dr. Shelley dela Vega (research on Dementia) and Dr. Encarnita Raya-Ampil (research on Dementia). My understanding with dementia is now clearer than before. With regards to HIV, I recommend that all sexually active persons should get an HIV test.

Yap After the session on Dementia and HIV, I attended the Philippine Association of Medical Journal Editors (PAMJE) General Assembly as an associate member. We were lucky to witness the review of PAMJE's constitution and we also elected a new set of officers. Dr. Joey Lapeña was elected President to serve for three consecutive years. PAMJE will be applying for SEC registration this year to achieve a legal entity status. It was also reported that PAMJE is preparing to be the host for the 2015 Asia Pacific Association of Medical Journal Editors (APAME) annual convention. Local organizing committees are now being formed. This event was held at Makati Shangri-La Hotel on March 14, 2014. I thank PCHRD for allowing me to participate as well as to my colleague Ms. Gladys Entico for sharing a day with me at the event. PS: Health librarianship will always be my first love. I have been involved in the field of medical and health librarianship in the early years of my career as a librarian working in an organization for the prevention of vector-borne diseases particularly of malaria. I will continue to renew my membership with the Medical and Health Librarians Association of the Philippines (MAHLAP), having been their former PRO (20082009) and Secretary (2010). To continuously update myself with the recent information in this field, I find time to attend to public events offered by PCHRD, DOH or MAHLAP.

It has been proven that Team Building Activities are useful tools to ensure group focus, reduce stress, improve attitudes and learn to work together towards one goal (Glaze, 2011). The activities of the team building were facilitated by Ms. Myrssa A. Ramos, Sales and Marketing Head of EESM Bookstore. Ms. Ramos, divided the officers into two (2) groups. She prepared different experiential activities and challenges such as: Nega Jar, The Boat is Sinking, On the Dot, Human Knot, Double Ball Relay, and the Group Marathon. Winners were announced at the end of each challenge and prices were generously sponsored by the Partner Company. Indeed, the MAHLAP team building on Day 2 was a great means to share laughter and smiles while learning. It was an unforgettable experience for MAHLAP Officers to start the Annual Year 2014-2015 with these 2-day activities. Combining PLANNING and TEAMBUILDING can be used to determine strong points in an individual’s personality, such as leadership skills that were needed and expected for each officer to embody in order to succeed. As the saying goes, “Success Starts with a Shared Vision and Building Teamwork.”

The members enjoined themselves to various games, contests and watched the unveiling and launch of the 2014 Bookazine. This is a combination of a MAHLAP newsletter and directory in one.

Encanto-Arevalo To the current MAHLAP Officers and Participants and former MAHLAP presidents, Good Morning! Before I begin, I would like to acknowledge the presence of former presidents of MAHLAP who are with us today, Mam Aida Aracap and Ms. Gina Canceran. Thank you so much for your continuous support to MAHLAP. One way or another, MAHLAP has changed our lives for the better. I, myself, am very thankful because MAHLAP has helped me grow professionally and individually. When I came in as a librarian of the Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health, I had no idea about the medical field; and Mrs. David, who was the director of Rizal Library, told me to join MAHLAP. “There, you'll gain insights about medical librarianship,” she said. And she was right. MAHLAP made me comfortable. Before, I can't even spell or pronounce otorhinolaryngology. (“Doc, pwede bang ENT nalang?”) With MAHLAP, I gained friends, I got a network who I can turn to whenever I need help. MAHLAP even helped me get through MA, publish a paper and present in an international conference. MAHLAP was and still is a blessing. And today, I am reminded of all those who have nurtured and supported me - my mentors and colleagues along the way. It is an honor, I thank you all for giving me a chance to give back. I have served MAHLAP on the side, quietly (I only get noisy during fellowship nights☺) now, it's a privilege to lead MAHLAP. But, as much as it is a privilege, it is also a responsibility. As I prepare myself to become a mother, I also prepare myself to becoming a mother to you and to the organization who has nurtured me since I entered medical librarianship. I'm a bit nervous to both responsibilities but I am sure there will always be YOU, the people who will help me get through it. As much as I would like to be a good mother, I also wish to lead MAHLAP to stardom (at maging stage mother). But, this is not just my journey, it is our voyage to doors of new opportunities and innovation while bridging the gap of borders and boundaries. I will be hoping and requesting for your support, as you have always supported and loved this organization. We will be having activities such as hosting the conference of Asia-Pacific Association of Medical Journal Editors (APAME) in August 2015, forums, congresses, outreach programs, etc. We will face challenges, but together, we must remain rooted in our principles and focused on our mission. We must be clear-eyed about our strengths and weaknesses, and ambitious in fulfilling our advocacy and promise as medical librarians.
