Stroke rehabilitation has been a growing specialty in most hospitals and healthcare facilities in Vietnam since 2016. The healthcare program for post-stroke patients has remained a challenge. There was a lack of awareness of the importance of post-stroke rehabilitation. There was a need for education of standard knowledge, skills, and abilities in stroke rehabilitation specialty for doctors and nurses. The specialty training program for nurses and doctors has been projected by the World Stroke Organization and the Austrian government from 2017 to 2019. Through 3 years of specialty supported program, the awareness and practical skills of doctor and nurse participants have been improved and changed positively in their knowledge, skills, and abilities. This study aimed to highlight the results of the specialty training program of post-stroke rehabilitation in Vietnam.
