Event description

Description

Course Aim: To equip Practice Nurses with the latest guidance on the national immunisation programmes, and raise awareness to available resources to respond to the challenges encountered in Primary Care whilst delivering adult and childhood immunisations. The National Minimum Standards for Immunisation Training (HPA 2005) recommends an initial 2 day course for all staff involved in immunisation. The rationale for the length and content of training required is based on the complexity of the immunisation schedule
