This book explains the relationship of health problems and medical-health education, how to help students to study in large classes or small classes, and importantly the basis for providing constructive feedback for the implementation of an optimal and meaningful learning process, within the context of health problems for learners.

The way of life “Tut Wuri Andayani” is a foundation of facilitating student’s learning. The attitude will be very empowered through the provision of constructive feedback. A teacher is no longer a source of information, but a companion of learners in finding and sorting information in order to realize the independence of learning and the ability to provide better health services in the future. A friend to learn is a partner to cooperate collaboratively and cooperatively to complete the daily learning tasks that do not regard the limitation of line and place. Aware of the self-limitations, needing others, cooperating with others and being open to the latest scientific evidence-based information are the attitudes of learners who continue to be built through the attitude of “Lifelong Learning”.
