About this Event

2 day immunisation training in line with the Public Health England national minimum standards for immunisation training. Please note that you must attend both days.

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 for Registered Healthcare Practitioners (PHE, 2018) recommends an initial two day course for all staff involved in immunisation.
