Now available: SKAI resources for healthcare workers  – immunisation communication eLearning module and website

The NCIRS Social Science Unit is pleased to announce that the Sharing Knowledge About Immunisation (SKAI) healthcare worker resources are now available. 

SKAI is designed to facilitate conversations about childhood immunisation between parents and healthcare providers. 

The SKAI eLearning module is designed to help providers adapt their clinical communication skills to meet the needs of all parents, whether they are ready to vaccinate, have questions or intend to decline vaccination altogether. The module provides an introduction to the SKAI website for providers.

These new resources complement the already available SKAI website for parents

The SKAI communication package was developed by Professor Julie Leask and Dr Nina Berry, with input from Associate Professor Margie Danchin, Professor Lyndal Trevena, Dr Penelope Robinson and support from the NCIRS Social Science Unit. The SKAI team and NCIRS would like to acknowledge the many contributors and collaborators who have made the successful development of SKAI possible.
