This course is an intensive half day update on Immunisation that will revise the Core Curriculum Topics of the National Minimum Standards for Immunisation Training (HPA 2005) and will be very informative and very current and will be predominately aimed at Registered Nurses who regularly immunise patients in accordance with the routine UK immunisation schedule.
It will be delivered by an experienced former practice nurse and supported by the regional Public Health England Screening and Immunisation team.
