HPV Vaccine Provider Course – Free Online Continuing Credit – ends April 15, 2017

WithinReach, in partnership with Cardea and the Washington State Department of Health is excited to announce a new, continuing education course You Are the Key to HPV Cancer Prevention. This free, hour-long HPV vaccine provider education course is designed for physicians, pharmacists, advanced practice clinicians, nurses, and other staff who work with children, adolescents and their parents in primary care settings.

Provider-Focused Distance Learning Course

Research shows that clinicians underestimate the value parents place on the HPV vaccine and that one of the top 5 reasons cited by parents for not vaccinating is because the vaccine was not recommended. This course helps providers frame the HPV vaccine conversation, encourages providers to make a strong vaccination recommendation and offers responses for the most common concerns and questions held by parents. Earn credit for free and learn tips for recommending the HPV vaccine to children, adolescents and their parents!

2015 Epidemiology and Prevention of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases course, commonly known as the Pink Book training on September 16-17, 2015 in Tacoma, WA

The Pink Book Training is a live, two-day comprehensive review of immunization principles, as well as vaccine-preventable diseases and the recommended vaccines to prevent them. The course will feature the most up-to-date immunization information from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) presented by faculty from CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. The course offers 14 CE’s for a variety of health care professionals.

WithinReach hosted this course back in 2011 and it was so successful that we sold out with over 400 attendees. We’d love to see this great of a turnout again and we need your help in letting potential attendees learn about the conference. This year we are also thrilled to offer a selection of free pre-course workshops, on Tuesday, September 15th on topics including HPV, vaccine hesitancy, and the WA State Immunization Information System.
