Medication safety in Vietnamese hospitals

05 November 2014

A focus on medication errors and safety culture

November 3 Ms Huong Nguyen will defend her thesis. The dissertation of Huong Nguyen addresses medication safety in South-East Asia, focusing on Vietnam in particular. The results of this thesis provided additional evidence that clinical pharmacists are important in ensuring medication safety, also in resource-restricted countries such as Vietnam. They should take the lead of a multidisciplinary team to develop tailor-made interventions endorsed by hospital managers.

Huong Nguyen did her PhD at the University of Groningen at the Groningen Research Institute of Pharmacy (GRIP). The research was funded by NUFFIC. She will continue her career at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
