A positive approach to parents with concerns about vaccination for the family physician

1 Oct 2014
Description

Provides an approach for primary care physicians to enable effective communication with parents who have different levels of concerns about vaccinations and awareness of currently available resources that may be used to support discussions.

Summary

Background
Vaccine hesitancy is becoming increasingly recognised as an issue in Australia and globally, as concerns about vaccine and their safety predominate over concerns about the risk of vaccine-preventable diseases.

Discussion
Clear and flexible communication strategies for healthcare providers to undertake effective discussions with vaccinehesitant parents or clear referral pathways are the key to addressing concerns about vaccination in both primary and secondary care.
