The Hong Kong Medical Association - Community Health Academy

The Hong Kong Medical Association has received funding support from the Community Investment and Inclusion Fund to launch a two-year community project, named the “Community Health Academy”, starting from November 2016 to October 2018. The Project adopts a model with the supports from the fields of medical, non-governmental, social, educational, and housing departments and comprises 3 main components: (i) Health Academy for the Elderly; (ii) Outreach Team for the Elderly; and (iii) One Service Unit One Doctor Scheme. The “Health Academy for the Elderly” aims to build a learning network, expand the social network of the elderly and provide a platform for mutual learning and communication that enables the elders, carers, residents, students and the staff of the housing authority to have deeper understanding of the resources in Hing Wah Estates (I)(II) in Chai Wan. The “Outreach Team for the Elderly” aims at building a supporting network among the residents and the neighborhood, encouraging them to help one another, promoting role transition of the residents to become our volunteers and organizing voluntary home visits. The “One Service Unit One Doctor Scheme” in Chai Wan district intends to reinforce medical-social collaboration and improve the elderly health care services in the district.

Ms. Hannah HUI was invited to introduce shoulder training exercises and Ms. Irene GOT was the speaker of the talk titled "Trust Building". The training workshop mainly focused on training the shoulder muscles and participants were required to practise a certain moves with a stretching cloth, including the rowing and archery moves which helped strengths building. After a series of shoulder exercises and a break, Ms. Irene GOT guided the participants to explore the topic of "Trust". The participants started with learning about the theoretical perspective of trust, the trust-building factors and the importance of trust in relationship building. Through the game "Test Your Self-Confidence", participants realized that listening and giving feedbacks could have positive effects on maintaining continuous communication, building self-confidence and promoting mutual trust. These were particularly important to the relationship of carers and care recipients.
