Vaccine safety seminar
Ideas to improve the surveillance of patients following the administration of vaccines will be the focus of a seminar bringing together national and international experts.
Health workers, researchers, immunisations providers and public health staff interested in the active surveillance for adverse events following immunisation are invited to attend the Vaccine Safety Seminar, to be held at the Harbour View Hotel in North Sydney on 29 October.
The seminar has been organised by the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance, and speakers include Dr Jennifer Nelson of the University of Washington’s Group Health Research Institute, Associate Professor Michael Gold, a member of the WHO’s Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety and Dr Bronwyn Harvey of the Therapeutic Goods Administration.
Topics to be covered include methods of active and enhanced surveillance such as solicited feedback via SMS, hospital-based surveillance, and the use of large health care databases.
