According to recently received data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), immunization rates have dropped for the second year in a row, putting patients at greater risk for flu and its associated complications including hospitalization and death. It’s more important than ever to educate and encourage everyone to get immunized for the 2016-2017 flu/pneumonia season.

 

A reminder to please join Kathy Roby, BSN, MA, MS, CHCE and Russell Cooney from the New England QIN-QIO on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 from 12-1 p.m. for the webinar, Shot From the Heart: Flu and Pneumonia Shots and the Importance of Continued Vigilance.

At the conclusion of the presentation participants will be able to:

  • Describe the immunization cycle: a timeline of incidents of influenza and when it peaks annually
  • Identify the relationship between timely immunizations and decreased avoidable admissions and readmissions to the hospital
  • Identify the importance of why all eligible persons need to be immunized during this critical time of the year (especially for seniors)
To ensure this session meets your needs, you are invited to submit any questions you may have in advance to Russell Cooney. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you online on January 17.

 

 

Sincerely,

The New England QIN-QIO
