TREC Immunisation Study Day
“Getting to the Point”

This study day has been developed in response to requests from health care professionals who require general immunisation training but are not working in the field of travel health.

The content is based on training requirements as recommended within the National Minimum Standards for Immunisation Training Guidance. We will concentrate the information on UK adult schedule vaccines e.g. Hep B, Flu, Varicella, Tetanus etc so anticipate that it will be of relevance to occupational health staff or any other health care professionals providing immunisation and vaccine advice to adults.

Topics covered –

  • Immunology revision
  • Diseases and their vaccines (Hep B, Tetanus, Flu, Varicella, Men C)
  • The legal bits – (consent, prescribing, documentation)
  • Practical issues – (needle length, vaccine technique, cold chain, storage)
  • Anaphylaxis – revision and update
  • C.P.R. – practical update and certification
