Nowadays, manpower shortage is still a challenge facing the rehabilitation sector in Vietnam, especially at the district-level healthcare system. Aiming to address this pressing issue, MCNV proposed for organizing a rehabilitation course for physicians as part of the “Improving the quality of life of persons with disabilities in provinces heavily sprayed with Agent Orange” (Inclusion) project.

Delegates from USAID, CCIHP, CCRD, MCNV, NACCET, Bach Mai hospitals and the trainees at the course closing event.

The Basic Rehab course was organized by MCNV as part of Inclusion 1 & 2 project, sponsored by USAID via the CCIHP (Center for Creative Initiatives in Health and Population) and CCRD (Center for Community Health Research and Development). Inclusion project is owned by the National Action Centre for Toxic Chemicals and Environmental Treatment (NACCET).

Delivered in six months (May 2022 – November 2022), the course aims to equip the trainees with adequate knowledge and skills in diagnosis and intervention for common conditions that require rehabilitation services such as stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, knee joint, hip joint replacement.

The trainees are provided with relevant skills in screening, providing assessment and intervention for patients and persons with disabilities (PwDs) in hospitals and the community./.
