The National Immunisation Schedule is reviewed on an annual basis leading to minor and, at times, significant changes. The vaccination schedule is a significant public health effort to ensure the health of our populations and therefore it is important that all paediatric/child health nurses & midwives understand the latest updates.
This education session will provide an overview of the recent changes to the National Immunisation Program schedule for children. It will encourage Nurse Immunisers to reflect on their practice and provide information about schedule changes.
In this video learning activity, you will:
- Receive information about vaccine-preventable diseases the schedule changes relate to
- Gain an understanding of why these changes have been made
- Acquire knowledge regarding the risk factors for vaccine-preventable diseases the schedule changes relate to
- Think critically about vaccine service provision as a Nurse Immuniser
This learning activity is one hour in duration. 1 hour of active learning = 1 CPD hour.
You will receive a certificate after completing a short quiz to use in your professional development portfolio.
