Immunisation Update – Interprofessional (Virtual Learning) – 12th September 2024

As per the PHE and RCN guidance National Minimum Standards and Core Curriculum for Immunisation Training, the Cornwall Training Hub Immunisation Update will cover:

  • Current issues in immunisation.
  • Recent epidemiology of vaccine preventable disease.
  • Any changes to vaccine recommendations or national policy.
  • Update on vaccine ordering, storage and administration.
  • Any changes to legislation relevant to vaccination.
  • Review of current practice, recent vaccine incidents, identification of areas for improvement and review of support strategies.
  • Q&A session for problems encountered in practice.

Our immunisation training programme has been adapted to be interprofessional, incorporating the diverse range of healthcare workers now involved in immunisation. This approach improves understanding of different professional roles and responsibilities, fostering better collaboration and positively impacting patient outcomes.  The training covers core immunisation topics that are universally relevant, ensuring that even those focusing on specific diseases are aware of the entire national programme.  This comprehensive awareness enables all participants to become effective vaccine champions, promoting vaccination at every opportunity.  By integrating these elements, our programme aims to create a well-rounded and effective immunisation workforce.

This training is a blended learning programme that consists of 2 MANDATORY components:

  • PRIOR LEARNING is mandatory for this training programme (full details can be found in the course profile). Participants should have stayed current with vaccine updates and amendments to the Patient Group Directions (PGDs) and the Green Book throughout the year.  If you have not, you must complete this reading before the interactive session.  This knowledge is essential for participation.
  • INTERACTIVE VIRTUAL SESSION – taking place on the 12th September 2024, 9.30am-1.30pm, via TEAMS, this session explores and builds upon the content covered in the prior learning. You will be expected to participate in quizzes, case study and scenario discussions with peers, during virtual sessions you MUST have a working microphone and video functionality.
