This eLearning module is designed to help you adapt your clinical communication skills to meet the needs of all parents, whether they are ready to vaccinate, have questions or intend to decline vaccination altogether. It teaches all healthcare workers how to use the SKAI system and equips them with strategies to assist immunisation consultations.
This module may be relevant for all healthcare staff. It was designed mainly for primary healthcare workers who have conversations with parents about vaccination, and may qualify for CPD points as indicated.
The SKAI eLearning module was developed by the SKAI team, led by the University of Sydney in partnership with the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance (NCIRS).
Time to complete:
90 minutes (approx.)
This activity is eligible for self-reported learning.
Upon completion of the SKAI module, the learner should be able to:
- Distinguish the differing attitudinal positions of parents towards childhood vaccination to discern appropriate communication needs;
- Analyse the communication needs of parents to identify communication goals;
- Utilise the communication goals to select appropriate SKAI communication strategies and resources;
- Implement SKAI communication strategies with parents to maximise engagement and reduce vaccination hesitancy.
The SKAI eLearning module is available via the Sydney Child Health Program (SCHP). Please follow the steps below to access the module:
