Sharing Knowledge About Immunisation – SKAI eLearning module

The SKAI eLearning module is temporarily unavailable. Please refer to our vaccination tools and resources in the meantime.

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. 

Learning outcomes
Upon completion of the SKAI module, the learner should be able to:
•    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.

Target audience: This module may be relevant for all healthcare staff. It was designed mainly for primary healthcare workers who have conversations with parents about vaccination, and may qualify for CPD points as indicated.

Cost: Free

Time to complete: 90 minutes (approx.)

CPD points: GPs, Nurses, Midwives, Pharmacists 

Module hosting & development: The SKAI eLearning module was developed by the SKAI team, led by the University of Sydney in partnership with the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance (NCIRS). The module is temporarily unavailable while it is being transferred to a new learning environment and will be available as soon as possible in early 2023.
