Primary Care Network

Current adult immunization rates in Canada remain suboptimal. Data suggests that Canadian adults remain unprotected against recommended age and risk-based vaccine preventable diseases. Pharmacists practicing in direct patient care settings are well positioned to provide preventative healthcare services to their high-risk patients. Attend this informative session on incorporating vaccination assessments into your primary care practice.

Session Learning Objectives:

  1. Appreciate the true “burden” of vaccine preventable diseases
  2. Develop communication skills around “vaccine hesitancy”
  3. Discuss how to assess patient immunization status
  4. Review “operational strategies” to improve vaccination rates in primary care
