BIOGRAPHY


Nik Daliana Nik Farid earned her medical degree from the University of Adelaide, South Australia. Upon graduation, she joined the Malaysian government service and did house officer training and medical officer work at Kuala Lumpur Hospital. In 2005, she joined the Institute for Public Health where she was appointed as the Main Research Group member for the Third National Health and Morbidity Survey. In 2007, she went on to study at the University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur where she received her Master of Public Health (MPH) and Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) degrees. In 2012, she served as the second Medical Officer of Health at Mukah Division Health Office, Sarawak where she covered two major sections namely Epidemiology as well as Maternal and Child Health. Nik Daliana then continued her service as the Head of Primary Health Care Unit at the Hulu Langat District Health Office, Selangor. She left the Ministry of Health in August 2013 to serve the University of Malaya. Nik Daliana is currently a Medical Lecturer in the Department of Social and Peventive Medicine with a specialisation in Public Health. She has a special interest in adolescent health. More specifically her work aims to address the five areas, namely sexual and reproductive health, mental health, nutritional health, physical activity and high risk behaviour. Her contribution to this field include: conducting research on sexual risk behaviour among incarcerated adolescents in welfare institutions; assessing for non-communicable diseases among school-going adolesents and setting up of an adolescent friendly website for quasi experimental study. Also, she is involved in the collection and distribution of literatures pertaining to adolescent's health by a clearinghouse centre in UM. Her latest research output was on 'Setting Research Priorities for Adolescent Health in Malaysia' whereby  research gaps were identified through an expert-led approach. Her main goal for the next 3-5 years is to look into the effectiveness of an internet based health promotion programme in enhancing adolescent's knowledge, attitude and practices towards health. Additionally, she hopes that these initiatives will improve adolescent's access to health information and develop health-enhancing behaviours among them. In 2014, Nik Daliana published 3 journal articles in ISI indexed journals mainly in the area of women and adolescent health:

a) Predictors of sexual risk behaviour among adolescents from welfare institutions in Malaysia: A cross sectional study. BMC Public Health.

b) Breast cancer awareness of rural women in Malaysia: is it the same as in the cities? Asian Pacific Journal of Cancer Prevention.

c) Clinical breast examination as the recommended breast cancer screening modality in a rural community in Malaysia: What are the factors that could enhance its uptake? PLOS ONE.

During the past one year, Nik Daliana has participated in several community projects such as conducting a mini workshop on puberty for young adolescents attending a religious school in Bangsar. Nik Daliana is presently a member of the Malaysian Association for Adolescent Health (MAAH); Malaysian Clearinghouse Center for Adolescent Health (MyCCAdH); Malaysian Care for Adolescent Project (MyCAP); Malaysian Health and Adolescents Longitudinal Research Study (MyHeARTs) and Ministry of Health Malaysia National Technical Committee for Adolescent Health. Nik Daliana teaches Family Health to postgraduate and undergraduate students. She coordinated two postgraduate courses in 2014 i.e. Women, Child and Adolescent Health and Lifetime Health for Master of Public Health and Doctor of Public Health respectively. A strong advocate of problem-based learning (PBL) technique, Nik Daliana tutors PBL sessions for Stage 1 and 2 University of Malaya Medical Programme (UMMP) students.

Administratively, Nik Daliana coordinates and oversees Master of Public Health and Master of Medical Science (Public Health) programmes. She also assists in the coordination of the University of Malaya-Kyoto University Double Degree Programme for Public Health.
