Vaccine Training Course Keeps Skills Fresh

Vaccine training course modules exist for those learning the basics of immunisation and how to administer vaccine injections for the first time. Such a course can apply to a whole host of different medical professionals, but they particularly involve nurses, pharmacists and clinicians.

However, they also exist to help refresh the memories of those who have previously had vaccination training. The Health Protection Agency's guidelines on immunisation (now under the guise of Public Health England) must be followed. Within it, there are provisions for ensuring that the skills of staff are constantly updated to reflect changing procedures and directions in immunisation. In regards to general medical training, the General Medical Council have specified in guidelines that it is also the responsibility of individuals to identify their own needs in their job roles with plans on how to address them. Also included in these guidelines are references to individuals reflecting on their medical practice performance, while making clear the need for professionals to keep competent and up to date across all medical roles. This is also further augmented by the recommendation that personal development be approached from the perspective of what skills are primarily needed by those using the services. Given that vaccination is an everyday occurrence up and down the country – both in regards to flu and travel vaccines – then it is important to keep these skills up to date.

Whatever your job role, you're going to need a top quality vaccine training course to help you retain the skills and requirements of being able to safely and successfully administer vaccinations. This is where our team at ECG can help. We offer structured or bespoke training, either face-to-face or online, to keep nurses, pharmacists and clinicians confident in their application of vaccines.
