Level of Program:
Intermediate

Safe storage, handling, injection, and infusion of vaccines can prevent infections, but those practices must be taught to and consistently performed correctly by nurses, pharmacists, and any other healthcare providers who prepare and deliver injectable and infusible medications. Negative outcomes, such as infections and outbreaks, can occur when safe injection practices are not followed. Failures in this area can also lead to fines from government agencies and accrediting organizations, plus the potential for negative publicity.

During this 90-minute webinar, expert speaker Terri Rebmann, PhD, RN, CIC, FAPIC, will explain how improper administration of vaccines can result in injuries or prevent the vaccines from providing optimal protection. She will also discuss the components of safe storage, handling, injection, and infusion practices for vaccines and how to put them into action.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the causes and consequences of outbreaks related to unsafe injection and infusion practices with vaccines
  • Identify the components of safe storage, handling, injection, and infusion practices for vaccines and put them into action
  • Identify current resources for safe injection practices
  • Put a standard operating procedure for vaccine practices in writing, as recommended by the CDC
