  2. Want to know more about vaccines? Want to improve your understanding of immunization? I was interested to know about courses on immunization and vaccines that are available either online or on location in Europe. Because it fits perfectly with the Forum’s “in focus” topic this month, I would like to share with you what I found. The results are of an online search (I did not participate in any of the courses yet, so the list is not based on personal experience – but the organizations seem reliable to me). Hopefully this information will be helpful to you as well! If you want to read more about the content and even join one course – just follow the links below. Do you know of any other courses on immunization? Maybe in another language than English? Or you already participated in one? Please feel free to share it with us underneath my post!

  3. I conducted a small study in one rural area in the USA where patients have no-to-low science literacy. Among the elders, neither videos nor texts essays succeeded in withdrawing their interest to learn about viral diseases. BUT a comic book did that and more! To my knowledge, this is the first report on improving health education among old patients using comics. I’d love to see if such results are reproducible elsewhere in EU or the USA …. If someone is interested in making our small sample size bigger, that would be awesome!
  4. CAN YOU DESCRIBE THIS MAP IN ONE WORD? I have been asking this over the Social Media on Tiwtter - LinkedIn ...etc. Answers came as: DISTRUST - DEPRESSING - NO! - .... I'm curious to have more answers for this increasing vaccine hesitancy problem. Thank you, Susan
  5. As a pediatrician, I trust the system that assures the efficacy and safety of the vaccines I offer families. It's important that the families be comforted by sharing my trust. How do I do that? No two families are the identical, but the process I use is the same: candid education that encourages dialogue. First, I set the frame of reference by reminding parents (and children old enough to understand) that "today is the time for your child to receive the vaccine to protect against measles, mumps and rubella", for example. I explain what these diseases are, in as much or little detail as seems reasonable for this family, thus defining the benefits of the vaccine and also the possible side-effects or adverse reactions. Then I pause for questions and answer each with candor and respect. No question is off limits. If I am not sure of the answer or the answer is unknown, I say so and express willingness to seek more information. But since pediatricians are expected to be knowledgeable about immunization, the answers to most questions come quickly. I remind families that my own children and grandchildren received these vaccines because it is one of the best ways to protect their health. For the few families whose fears and/or misinformation make them resist immunization, time permitting, I work to understand their concerns. When I am able to do so with candor, respect and humility, most times we share the success of full, on-time, protective immunization because of the trust we have generated together. And the stage is set for the additional vaccines necessary on another visit. For the even fewer families who still resist immunization, an ethical approach is difficult and beyond the scope of this brief comment.
