Managing Immunisation Emergencies (New Immunisers)
The course delivers essential knowledge and skills from the national training unit in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and frames the resuscitation within the context of an AEFI. The course expands on adverse reactions eg hypotonic/hyporesponsive episodes and discusses the planning process used to determine emergency protocols and equipment. The intent is to develop students' capacities for making sound clinical judgements within critical timeframes, and working dynamically and collaboratively with the trainer and colleagues to achieve competency and build confidence.
During the workshop, relevant changes are highlighted, clinical practice issues are examined, skills demonstrated, practiced and assessed.
The cost per corporate training course is $4,350 for up to 15 participants and $280pp thereafter for up to 20 (COVID venue permitting). Additional charges may be incurred for courses outside metropolitan Melbourne. Alternatively, public bookings can be made below.
