Aboriginal immunisation and quality improvement processes

Aboriginal people have higher rates of some vaccine preventable diseases than non-Aboriginal people. For this reason, extra vaccines are freely available through the National Immunisation Program or they are offered at different age points.

By utilising quality improvement processes, general practice staff can play an important role in encouraging Aboriginal patients to consider the benefits of being vaccinated.

This webinar will cover the following topics:

  • The new Aboriginal Schedule.
  • The importance and benefits of the schedule.
  • Quality improvement principles for your practice.
  • Plan Do Study Act cycles and how they can benefit your practice.
  • RSV in Aboriginal Babies.
