New Sharing Knowledge About Immunisation (SKAI) website for parents and carers now live

SKAI

NCIRS in partnership with USYD and with the support of collaborators recently launched the first component of a new system and package for effectively communicating with parents about immunisation. Titled Sharing Knowledge about Immunisation (SKAI), the SKAI website for parents is now live, and additional SKAI components will be progressively released.

SKAI provides a suite of resources and information for parents/carers of babies and young children designed to support conversations about childhood vaccination. The parent website contains information about vaccines included on the National Immunisation Program and answers questions parents ask in an accessible and easily interpreted format.

Visit the SKAI parent site now at www.talkingaboutimmunisation.org.au

In the coming months, SKAI will also launch a provider website accompanied by an e-learning module to assist healthcare workers with conducting satisfying and effective conversations about immunisation.
