Practical Clinical Research Workshop in Ho Chi Minh City, November 2016

In November 2016, the University of Sydney and Hoc Mai Australia-Vietnam Medical Foundation worked with health researchers across Vietnam in preparation for a 6-week research-intensive fellowship programme in Sydney, Australia from 23 April to 3 June 2017.

Hoc Mai Foundation has been conducting Research Capacity Building programmes in Vietnam since 2008 with participants coming from universities, hospitals and other health institutions in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh and in 2014, included doctors and researchers from Hue and Da Nang. In 2013, four seed funding were provided by Hoc Mai Foundation to help researchers implement their projects. As a result of this funding, several research articles were published in international journals as well as being recognised internationally as best practice - Hand Hygiene research project recognised by Asia Pacific Hand Hygiene Society of Infection Control.

The participants of the 2016 workshops were from institutions across Vietnam: Hanoi Medical University, National Geriatric Hospital, E-Hospital, HCMC University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Pham Ngoc Thach University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Da Nang Hospital for Women and Children, Tu Du Maternity Hospital, Children’s Hospital No 1, and Hung Vuong Hospital. The 2016 workshops were conducted with the support from the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre’s Research Capacity Building Grant.

Practical Clinical Research Workshop in Hanoi, November 2016

In 2017, sixteen researchers will travel to Australia for the Medical research capacity building in Vietnam through intensive experiential learning programme. Fifteen fellows are funded by the Australian government’s Australia Awards Fellowship for an intensive programme and to work with Sydney-based researchers in their identified areas of interest to develop their research protocol. They will go back to Vietnam with strong support from their institutions to implement this research in the longer term goal of contributing to produce evidence for improved clinical practice and policy.

Building Capacity Research in Vietnam is led by Professor Jonathan Morris and Associate Professor Kirsty Foster. This year, Dr Dindy Benn and Dr Christine Smyth supported the programme and worked with the participants during the workshops.
