As the summer is winding down, we anticipate that September will bring us more than just the autumn leaves. It’s the perfect time to think about strategies to prevent our patients from catching the flu and continue successful efforts in lowering hospitalization rates.
To review the importance of immunizations for patients and staff, please join Kathy Roby, BSN, MA, MS, CHCE, for the next New England Home Health Collaborative webinar, Flu Season is Coming; Target Better Outcomes with Your Immunization Plan on Wednesday, September 14, from 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm.
This presentation will focus on the following areas:
- Identifying the rationale for administering the flu vaccine to all eligible persons
- Motivating all eligible patients to receive the vaccine
- Identifying the impact of influenza and pneumonia on hospitalizations
- Weighing the pros and cons for mandating staff immunizations
If you have any questions about the Collaborative or about registering for the webinar, please contact Olivia Henze.
We look forward to your active participation in this webinar and to connecting with you on September 14!
