The American Nurses Association (ANA) and Every Child By Two (ECBT), a leading immunization advocacy organization, have partnered together to deliver an innovative continuing education webcast for nurses on vaccine safety and patient communication. The webcast will be available from December 1, 2010 through November 29, 2012. 2.5 free contact hours will be provided by the Colorado Foundation for Medical Care (CFMC).
The webcast includes information about standing order protocols, the importance of nurses reporting adverse events to ensure vaccine safety, and risk communication to nursing colleagues and patients about immunizations.
Combining a nurse-panel presentation with patient-nurse video vignettes, this course offers practical knowledge and skills to increase immunization competency.
