Mentoring Program Continues

The Beyond Borders Mentoring program continued for a third year. Our dedicated and skilled mentors from Australia, the UK & USA reconnected with groups of Vietnamese speech therapists to support their new clinical goals for 2020.

Like everything, we were expecting COVID-19 to throw a spanner in the works of our program. Surprisingly, this was not the case as the remote nature of our mentoring program has made it, in some ways, COVID-proof.  With goals, mentoring support, interpreting and translating already being 100% online, both mentees and mentors were accustomed to the online nature of the program. This allowed them to work, collaborate, support and learn, unaffected by COVID-19.

Speech therapists in Vietnam set goals for this year that were as complex as they were varied from Increase knowledge of performing swallow assessments and treatment for patients with tracheostomy to Having paediatric patients use communication books when purchasing at a hospital’s cafeteria.

It is so wonderful to see the reach of Trinh’s work and how, through the Beyond Borders Mentoring Program it continues on well after students graduate as speech therapists.
