Childhood Immunisation

The National Prescribing Service, in collaboration with the SKAI team and the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance have developed a CPD accredited e-learning module to improve skills in communicating with parents about vaccination. It aims to teach health workers how to:

  • Distinguish the differing attitudinal positions of parents towards childhood vaccination to discern appropriate communication needs;
  • Analyse the communication needs of parents to identify communication goals;
  • Utilise the communication goals to select appropriate SKAI communication strategies and resources;
  • Implement SKAI communication strategies with parents to maximise engagement and reduce vaccination hesitancy
