NCIRS Seminar/Webinar: Vaccine safety and adverse events following immunisation: a practical approach

Associate Professor Nigel Crawford, Director of SAEFVIC and Dr Lucy Deng a General Paediatrician and Staff-Specialist at NCIRS gave an overview of common expected and rarer serious adverse reactions following immunisation, the management and reporting of these adverse events.

The central component was to support immunisation providers in discussions with patients/parents who have concerns about safety and adverse events.  Real-life case study scenarios were presented by immunisation specialist service clinicians. The format was deliberately open and interactive, designed to provide a practical tool-kit and learn more about the referral services available around Australia. Webinar avaliable on the NCIRS website.
