Newcomers and Vaccine Decision-Making Practices: Lessons from the Prairies

The National Collaborating Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCCID) continues its series of public health podcasts and webinars on refugee health. This time our webinar will focus on immunization information-gathering and decision-making practices in vulnerable refugee and immigrant populations in the city of Edmonton, Alberta.

Ms. Stephanie Kowal will present key findings and recommendations from her study on the prairies focusing particularly on the potential impact that using cultural brokers can have on the success of creating access to immunization services and promoting immunization uptake. In addition, it will discuss how nurses and physicians can best communicate with newly arrived families to ensure that immunization decisions are fully informed and are in the best interest of the patients.

Participants will have a chance to discuss on problems and practical issues in an interactive Q & A session period following the presentation. Registrants are invited to submit questions of interest prior to the webinar to S.M. Zeeshan Qadar at
