Workshop to Develop Pilot Bachelor in Vietnam

Development of Speech and Language Therapy (SALT) in Vietnam continues to advance with the Central Vietnam city of Da Nang hosting a range of stakeholders participating in the October workshop aimed at developing the training framework and subject outlines for the pilot Bachelor of Rehabilitation Techniques in SALT. This will be offered in 2019 from the Da Nang University of Medical Technology and Pharmacy (DUMTP). TFA Director, Professor Lindy McAllister, facilitated the workshop for about 25 participants from four Vietnamese universities, the Ministry of Health, VietHealth and local NGO MCNV, who manage the development project.

Participants were presented with the draft of the Bachelor training framework by Dr Cao Bich Thuy (Head of Rehabilitation at DUMTP) and subject outlines (by Lindy) on which syllabus materials will be developed. Participants engaged in robust conversations about the materials and provided relevant broad and specific feedback for the project development team. Professor Lindy will continue to work with Dr Thuy (DUMTP), Ms Sarah Day (SP Advisor – Australian Volunteer, DUMTP) and MCNV staff in the coming months as the team works towards finalising the training framework and syllabus outlines for the Bachelor. Timetabling for the Bachelor will then begin, with TFA looking for clinical educators to support implementation of training over the coming three years.
