(SCORE Training for Data Collecting and Analyzing)
SCORE CIMSA UGM
Based on Deaf Studies and Deaf Education's journal, the deaf experience fear, distrust, and difficulties in accessing health services due to the limited capability of healthcare providers to communicate. Meanwhile, according to the governments’ law, everyone has a right to access health care easily. Therefore, to improve the right of the deaf, it is essential to implement ways for health care providers, such as doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff, to communicate easily with the deaf. One of the ways for the deaf to communicate with ordinary people is by using sign language.
From 1st until 20th March 2020, SCORE CIMSA UGM proudly held a long-term project called “SCORE Training for Data Collecting and Analyzing (SEROTONIN)." This project starts with a data-collecting activity done by SCORE members through interviews in the first two weeks. The interviews are performed by asking questions to doctors of RSUP dr. Sardjito to know the quality of health service for the deaf in RSUP dr. Sardjito and the importance of sign language as the media for health providers to communicate with the deaf.
On 6th March 2020, workshop training was held with Bagas Arrifandi from PC SCORE CIMSA Indonesia as the speaker. We learn how to analyze and process data through various methods. On the third week of this project, a team is formed to process the data received through the interviews by implementing what has been learned in previous training and webinar. Lastly, on 20th March, processed data was presented in the ENCOUNTER Webinar, the SCOME CIMSA UGM.
We hope SEROTONIN can increase knowledge about data and encourage the improvement of health access for the deaf.
