Project Description

The purpose of the current proposed workshops is to build the workforce capacity in Vietnam and India to improve the quality of hospital care in these regions that will lead to better patient outcomes (fewer deaths and people living with disability).
We propose to conduct three workshops in LMICs including two in Vietnam and one in India. The workshops will be used to a) build networks for priority setting, and b) provide focused education and training for members of clinical teams managing stroke to increase awareness of best-practice stroke care, and to ensure standardised monitoring of clinical care so that care gaps and quality improvement achievements can be reliably tracked. We will also have in-depth discussions about local barriers and teach skills to undertake effective quality improvement strategies (via improvement science methods). Participants will be upskilled clinically (i.e. be taught to deliver care according to clinical guidelines), as well as learning research and evaluation skills in how to collect and understand data that are used to monitor the provision of evidence-based care in hospitals.
