Free CE for Nurses and Medical Assistants: How to Support Vaccination in Your Practice

Feb 10, 2020 | Kimberly Sharpe-Scott

A new continuing education (CE) activity from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) gives nurses, medical assistants and other healthcare professionals (HCPs) practical strategies to improve vaccination rates in their practice. The CE demonstrates how to deliver clear and concise vaccine recommendations and address parents’ frequently asked questions.

Research shows that healthcare professionals are the most trusted source of information for parents when it comes to vaccines for their child. Nurses and medical assistants have a key role to play in improving vaccine acceptance and fostering a culture of immunization in the practice as they are in contact with parents throughout the office visit.

New Free CE Activity: How to Foster a Culture of Immunization: Nurses and medical assistants play a key role in improving vaccine acceptance, as they come in contact with parents throughout the office visit. CDC has launched a new free Continuing Education (CE) activity called How Nurses and Medical Assistants Can Foster a Culture of Immunization in the Practice. The new CE teaches practical strategies to improve vaccination rates in a practice, including how to deliver clear and concise vaccine recommendations and address parents’ frequently asked questions. Speakers include Virginia Chambers, Director of the Medical Assisting Program at Portland Community College, and Andrea Polkinghorn, Enterprise Immunization Strategy Leader at Sanford Health.
