To help health care providers respond effectively to patients’ questions about immunization and Ontario’s expanded publicly funded immunization schedules, a four-part educational program has been developed with the assistance of the following faculty :
The first module on general immunization addresses misconceptions and myths about vaccines and highlights information on the benefits, safety and efficacy of immunization.
Additional modules offer reviews of the rotavirus, varicella and pertussis vaccines. The modules provide the background information health care professionals will find useful in discussions with patients.
A Continuing Medical Education program is also available for Influenza at http://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/pro/programs/publichealth/flu/
These educational programs have been reviewed and are accredited by the Ontario chapter of the College of Family Physicians of Canada. Please click on the appropriate link below to access the program you are interested in :
