Despite knowing English as a second language, Vietnamese physicians were able to easily navigate an English-based, clinical decision support software (PEMSoft) after only a brief 80-minute training session, conducted by non-physicians. Their post-test exam scores improved by 84%!

One of my tasks is to create new KCE-PEMSoft training modules not only in English but also Vietnamese. And no, I do NOT speak a lick of Vietnamese.
