“Why Do We Vaccinate? When Should we Vaccinate?” (for Nurses)
In this webinar we will discuss some of the underlying principles of why we vaccinate that underpin our preventative healthcare strategy for most of our patients. How do we select the most appropriate vaccine protocol for a particular patient? How frequently should we booster vaccine? Should we titre test? How do we fit modified vaccination protocols into a preventative medicine strategy if client perceptions of preventative medicine programs are limited to, “I’m just here for the needles.” There is no one-size-fits-most answer to any of these questions, but by the end of the webinar, we hope you feel equipped to answer client and colleague questions about why we do what we do.
