Immunisation And Vaccination Training - The National Minimum Requirements

Immunisation and vaccination training is incredibly important in helping to save lives. It has also helped reduce the incidences of infectious diseases over the past few decades. However, this has had the effect of leading some members of the public to believe that vaccines are outdated. At the same time, controversies involving vaccines are never far behind.

In the face of such public criticism, it's important that your staff are full of knowledge and confidence in their skills – this can, of course, be achieved via quality flu vaccination training. It's important to consistently asses your staff when it comes to vaccination and immunisation. Staff should be able to provide a high standard of care, should be able to safely perform all vaccinations and should be able to answer any questions a person may have about the vaccinations or the diseases they are negating. This not only has the effect of keeping public confidence in immunisation high, but it also increases the chances that the person receiving the vaccination will return next year to your pharmacy. Continuous medical training of your staff therefore plays an important role in ensuring standards and knowledge retention remains high. Given that policies and recommendations are frequently being updated, and that diseases can adopt different patterns, it's important to ensure that your staff are aware of current standards as set by the government and respected NGO guidelines. This includes organisations such as the Health Protection Agency and the Resuscitation Council UK.
