The ‘mdBriefcase for adult pertussis’ is an interactive online program developed in consultation with experts in influenza. The interactive program aims to:
- Provide education on the national recommendations for pertussis immunisation for older adults (≥65)
- Ensure GPs understand the severity and consequences of pertussis in older adults (≥65)
- Ensure GPs are aware of the importance of vaccinating older adults
At conclusion of online activities, participants will be able to describe potential complications of influenza that can be prevented with vaccines, provide education to patients about the benefit of vaccines and address safety concerns, identify at risk groups that would befit from vaccination and recognise healthcare workers would benefit from immunisation against influenza.
