Introduction 

This half day update will cover all that nurses need to know in the way of children’s and adult’s immunisations and vaccinations.  This is a generic update aimed at clinicians who provide the full range of childhood and adult immunisations covered in the routine UK schedules. It will provide clinicians with the latest guidance on national immunisation programmes and demonstrate the tools and resources available to manage common incidents and educate patients.  Delegates are advised to have attended annual resuscitation training, which should include anaphylaxis care.

Aims

We will cover the recommended topics for annual immunisation update training within the National Minimum Standards:

  • Current issues in vaccination
  • Recent epidemiology of vaccine preventable diseases
  • Any changes to the National Immunisation Schedule
  • Any changes to legislation relevant to vaccination
  • Anaphylaxis recognition and management
  • Review of current practice and identification of areas for improvement

Plus we will have a Q&A session for commonly encountered problems in practice

The training can be supported in practice using the excellent Royal College of Nursing Competency document (page 15) for self-assessment.

Objectives:

This course meets Public Health England’s National Minimum Standards for Immunisation Training and includes any new and upcoming changes.

Please note this session will NOT be recorded
