Strengthening Vaccine Confidence in Pediatric Practice: 1.0 CME/CNE/CECH

Vaccine hesitancy has led to decreased vaccination rates and increased incidence of vaccine preventable diseases across the world.  This increased threat to public health has led the World Health Organization to declare vaccine hesitancy as one of the top 10 threats to public health worldwide.  Decreased MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccination rates in certain areas of New York State also led to the largest measles outbreak the state has seen since the 1990’s. Research has shown that there is often a disconnect between the perception providers have about parent hesitancy and their actual level of concern. A strong provider recommendation and proper communication techniques can help close this gap. This webcast will review the safety and efficacy of vaccines and discuss common parent concerns regarding vaccines, as well as the importance of a strong provider recommendation and basic techniques to address parent concerns.

After viewing the webcast, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the key concepts of vaccine hesitancy and vaccine safety and efficacy;
  • Identify ways that providers can address parental concerns and hesitancies; and
  • Indicate the key components of a strong presumptive recommendation

Target Audience: Physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, community health workers and certified public health workers.

Exploring Effective Strategies to Address Vaccine Hesitancy and Misinformation

Description

Vaccines are a notable public health achievement, which have helped to significantly reduce childhood morbidity, mortality and disease outbreaks. Although science supports their effectiveness, misinformation and hesitancy still exists. It’s critical for public health professionals to understand and address these issues to ensure successful implementation of immunization efforts. This webinar will uncover some of the sources of false information such as Twitter bots among other issues online and discuss methods to counter them. Healthcare professionals will also highlight their efforts to engage with individuals, families and the broader community in order to provide them with accurate information about immunizations and address their concerns and hesitancy.

The Measles Outbreak:
Why Vaccines Matter

The U.S. officially eliminated measles nearly 20 years ago. Yet, this year, more than 1,100 cases have been reported, despite being preventable by vaccine. The CDC says the majority of cases are among those who were not vaccinated.

This Forum looked at the drivers of the 2019 outbreaks and, more generally, the challenges of vaccine acceptance. Why do some parents delay or decline vaccinating their children? How might their concerns be addressed? What about exemptions? Why does the global picture matter? And what can be done once an outbreak begins? New polling data framed this discussion, providing a uniquely current picture of vaccine acceptance in the U.S.
