Barraclough, A., and M. Joshi. 2012. Technical Assistance for the Reform of Pharmaceutical Supply Management Curriculum at the Hanoi University of Pharmacy in Vietnam: SIAPS Technical Report. Submitted to the U.S. Agency for International Development by the Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) Program. Arlington, VA: Management Sciences for Health.
The Hanoi University of Pharmacy (HUP) has initiated a process of reforming their undergraduate and postgraduate curricula to ensure appropriate coverage of Pharmaceutical Supply Management (PSM) elements in their preservice pharmacy training courses. With support from US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, the Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) Program is assisting the HUP to facilitate this process.
This report is submitted as a combined report for the in-country visit made in September 2012 by a SIAPS principal technical advisor and a SIAPS consultant, and a technical report of activities and progress achieved in assisting HUP undertake PSM curriculum reform.
Since January 2012, when this PSM curriculum reform activity normally began getting implemented, SIAPS has collaborated with the HUP counterparts to help review the existing curriculums; map PSM-related competencies expected from the graduates; develop a curriculum for both postgraduate and undergraduate levels including aim, learning objectives, topic areas, contact times, pedagogical techniques, and detailed content summaries; and carrying out a stakeholder workshop to obtain and address feedback on the reformed curriculums. SIAPS has also assisted HUP in producing teaching slides for all the nine modules of the new curriculum—introduction and contextualization of PSM/governance; product selection; forecasting/quantification and supply planning; procurement; quality assurance; storage and distribution; inventory management; logistics management information system; and rational use of medicines.
