The National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) published an NFID Call to Action: Improving Healthcare Personnel Immunization Rates to address how to best optimize practices that will lead to improved immunization rates among healthcare personnel (HCP). The recommendations in this call to action are based upon the discussions from a November 2017 Summit convened by NFID, which included representatives from professional healthcare organizations active in infection prevention and control, occupational health, and immunization.

Stinchfield, RN, MS, CPNP, CIC, Children’s Minnesota, for engaging presentations on specific strategies and best practices to increase HCP immunization in various healthcare settings.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Review the current US recommendations for healthcare personnel and immunization rates
- Understand issues, challenges, and opportunities that may impact HCP immunization acceptance
- Discuss best practices and practical strategies to increase HCP immunization rates in various healthcare settings
