|The 7th Việt Nam Anaesthesiology Association Congress.|Viet Nam News
Quy Nhơn – Over 600 anaesthesiologists from Viêt Nam and 30 from abroad gathered for the 7th Việt Nam Anaesthesiology Association Congress that opened in the central city of Quy Nhơn yesterday.
Associate Professor Dr Công Quyết Thắng, chairman of the association, said that in 2012-2016, the Việt Nam Anaesthesiology Association has closely worked with the Ministry of Health to draft circulars and create a legal framework as well as complete procedures for 500 operations related to anaesthesiology.
Attention was paid to training and fostering during the term and many leading local experts took part in international workshops, he said.
A website was set up for the association at vnanesth.org, he said.
But the association does not have a headquarters or regular income, and this has restricted its activities, according to Thắng.
In the next term, 2016-20, it plans to promote co-operation with Ministry of Health, set up a training centre to ensure a regular income, provide more opportunities for members to keep abreast of new technologies and publish a monthly scientific magazine. VNS
