Award Description: Physicians wish to support individuals and parents in making sound vaccine decisions for themselves and their children. Targeted training for medical residents will help give physicians the knowledge and skills to communicate regarding vaccine safety with parents in the medical office setting. The purpose of this project is to create an innovative on-line and in-person education program aimed at improving pediatric and family residents' ability to address parents' and personal concerns regarding the immunization of children' adolescents and adults. Focus groups with the community will be used to identify messages that will address concerns. Focus groups with physicians will be used to identify innovative strategies for vaccine safety communication . Curricular materials will be developed to support training and also provide a train-the-trainer program to facilitate the dissemination of the curriculum across the country. Evaluation will include a pre and post test for participating residents. Partners in the project include the American Academy of Pediatrics, California Foundation: Children's Health Systems, the University of California, San Diego, Stanford University, the California Academy of Family Physicians,and expert consultants from the University of California, Davis and Los Angeles Children's Hospital.
Project Description: This project will result in the creation and dissemination of an innovative on-line and in-person education program aimed at improving pediatric and family residents' ability to address parents' and personal concerns regarding the immunization of children' adolescents and adults. In the first six months, following an in-depth literature review, 8 focus groups are planned to assess parent and physician needs in the area of vaccine communication. Next information from the review of best practices and the focus groups will be utilized to develop a proposed new curriculum for residents on vaccine communication. Towards the end of Year One pilots of this curriculum will be undertake in California. Year Two will include revisions of the curriculum, as needed, based on the pilots. At that point, we will proceed with dissemination of the curriculum in targeted programs across the country. A pre and post evaluation of residents' knowledge will be conducted to be included with the final report.
