Sharing Knowledge About Immunisation – SKAI eLearning module

This module is designed to help you adapt your clinical communication skills to meet the needs of all parents, whether they are ready to vaccinate, have questions or intend to decline vaccination altogether. It teaches all healthcare workers how to use the SKAI system and equips them with strategies to assist immunisation consultations.

•    Distinguish the differing attitudinal positions of parents towards childhood vaccination to discern appropriate communication needs;
•    Analyse the communication needs of parents to identify communication goals;
•    Utilise the communication goals to select appropriate SKAI communication strategies and resources;
•    Implement SKAI communication strategies with parents to maximise engagement and reduce vaccination hesitancy.
