Abstract

The Indonesian Code of Medical Ethics or Kode Etik Kedokteran Indonesia (KODEKI) is a reference of moral values for the Indonesian physicians applied in their day-to-day practices. The aims of the present study were to obtain reflection response rate by the physicians on values included in the KODEKI along with its affecting factors. This is a cross sectional study among 400 clinical doctors at Jakarta Special Province. To measure reflection levels of KODEKI, we used KODEKI Reflection Questionnaire (KRK). Personal data sheet was used to obtain characteristic respondent and influencing factors reflection level of KODEKI. The prevalence of KODEKI reflection response rate in most subjects was moderate, i.e. 338 (84.5%). There was a significant correlation between the duration of physician mission time (p=0.01) and the main location of medical practice (p=0.02) against the KODEKI reflection response rate based on statistic tests. There was no significant correlation of factors against the KODEKI reflection response rate by the duration of time spent in consultation (p=0.10), doctor’s competence level (p=0.11), and the experience of having training/knowledge about medical ethics (p=0.71). The duration of physician mission time and the main location of medical practice were affecting factors to reflection level. Both factors had association with frequency of experience and exercise facing ethical dilemma.
