HEALTH VOLUNTEERS OVERSEAS: COVID-19 – Challenges & Creativity

Nguyen Van Minh, MD/Health Volunteers Overseas
Station 1 - Basic Procedure

The anesthesiology department at Hue University in Vietnam had to postpone a workshop scheduled for April, 2020 due to COVID. They got creative and worked with HVO volunteers to successfully conduct an airway management course with 5 learning stations and several lectures in late November even though no volunteers were there in person. Virtual support and input carried the day.

In the note updating the HVO Executive Director about the workshop, Dr. NGUYEN VAN MINH noted that “ It is a sweet fruit from the long journey with the support from HVO. We wait for the moment when COVID-19 is over and we will welcome the HVO again.”
