Description

Public Health England and the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health are running a Fundamentals of Immunisation course. This annual, two-day intense theoretical course is designed for those new to a role in immunisation and is most suited to those who give or advise on a range of different vaccines.

 

The course comprises a series of lectures from national immunisation experts and will provide delegates with up-to-the-minute information on the range of topics included in PHE’s “Core Curriculum for Immunisation Training”.

 

A basic level of prior immunisation knowledge and familiarity with the Green Book (Immunisation against infectious disease) will be assumed.

 

The programme includes the following topics:

  • Why immunisation matters
  • The scientific basis of national vaccine policy: designing, informing and monitoring immunisation programmes - who does what?
  • Immunology of immunisation
  • Vaccine manufacture; vaccine trials; assuring the safety and quality of vaccines
  • Monitoring vaccine safety
  • Current issues in vaccine preventable diseases
  • Vaccine coverage data collections
  • Maximising immunisation uptake
  • Talking with parents about immunisation
  • Legal issues including consent
  • Practical issues: storage and administration
