Advancing Physiotherapy practice in Vietnam

A/Prof Prue Morgan was in Vietnam recently to facilitate a stakeholder workshop targeted at advancing the quality of physiotherapy practice in Vietnam.

She said it was wonderful to work with so many enthusiastic physiotherapy educators from north, central and south Vietnam, alongside Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education delegates, regional physiotherapy associations (Taiwan, Japan and Australia), funders, NGOs and Belgian collaborators under the World Confederation of Physical Therapists umbrella.

The project focused on identifying necessary steps to be taken - such as reshaping curriculum to focus much more on evidence based practice and clinical reasoning skill development -  to achieve internationally recognised physiotherapy in the future.
