12 Aug Update on Adult Immunizations
Adult Immunizations / Live Meeting
Even a treatment space like immunizations can need a shot in the arm when it comes to updated recommendations and the state of current and target rates. In collaboration with Adult Vaccination and Education (PAVE), the HPC, and the American College of Osteopathic Internists (ACOI), we designed an engaging and lively presentation featuring interactive quizzes and real-life scenarios with the goal of helping learners remember key messages and immediately identify ways to incorporate knowledge into their vaccine practices. Supported by an educational grant from Merck, the presentation emphasized vaccines with the most recent ACIP recommendation alongside FDA approval changes and uncovered those populations with the largest gaps between current and Healthy People 2020 target rates. Resources from PAVE such as patient surveys and a PI guide for implementing practice improvements were provided along with the opportunity to sign up for a time-conscious and innovative post-presentation educational activity that reinforced key knowledge and helped bring it to the practice setting.
