A partnership between educational institutions and business groups is set to contribute to the development of continuous medical education for pharmacists in Vietnam.
At the sidelines of the APEC week in Da Nang, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed on 9 November 2017 between Hanoi University of Pharmacy, University of Medicine and Pharmacy at Ho Chi Minh City, RMIT University Vietnam, AmCham Healthcare Committee, European Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam and Pharma Group Vietnam.
Through the MOU, the Parties will co-operate with a view to providing free, continuous medical training to pharmacy students, pharmacists, and pharmacy owners and staff in Vietnam through a mobile application (app). The app will be purely focused on further developing the knowledge and skills of pharmacists and therefore be free of charge, non-promotional and non-political. The app will be provide an innovative platform enabling pharmacists across the country to benefit from the training.
The MOU builds on the intent of the recent Vietnamese Pharmaceutical Law and the signing was witnessed by numerous representatives from the APEC community, demonstrating the international commitment to work together to improve healthcare and healthcare provision across the region.
