Satellite Broadcast on Epidemiology and Prevention of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases.
CDC's National Immunization Program and the Public Health Training Network will cosponsor a live satellite broadcast for physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, residents, and their colleagues who either administer vaccinations or set policy in their workplace. The four-part series, "Epidemiology and Prevention of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases," will be broadcast on March 25 and April 1, 8, and 15, 1999, from 12 noon to 3:30 p.m. eastern time.
The program will provide the most current information available in the field of immunization. Session one will cover principles of vaccination, general recommendations on vaccination, and strategies to improve vaccination coverage levels. Session two will cover diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, poliomyelitis, and rotavirus; session three will cover measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella; and session four will focus on hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenzae type b, influenza, and pneumococcal disease. Continuing education credit will be offered for a variety of professions based on 14 hours of instruction.
Additional information about this course, including registration, is available from state or county health department immunization programs. A list of state immunization coordinators is available on the World-Wide Web at <http://www.cdc.gov/nip>.
