On the 22nd of July 2022, the Kulliyyah of Pharmacy has organised a Data Management Workshop for KOMITED Malaysia at Dar Al-Hikmah library IIUM Kuantan. The workshop aimed to train KOMITED staff to explore the knowledge and skills required for data documentation available at KOMITED facilities, including shelter homes and drop-in centres. A total of 25 participants attended the workshop, and the training was led by Dr. Nor Ilyani Mohamed Nazar and Professor Dr. Che Suraya Mohd Zin. The half-day workshop has benefitted participants where they had the chance to ask questions, raise specific issues and discuss their needs related to data management. The expected outcome includes the ability of the KOMITED staff to document their data systematically in the electronic folders at their respective facilities for future analysis and monitoring.
