Immunisation register training
THE Department of Human Services has launched five new education modules to assist vaccination providers to use the newly updated Australian Immunisation Register (AIR).
The resources provide information on registering and requesting access to the site, accessing the register for the first time, submitting information to the AIR, recording overseas immunisations and notifying the AIR of immunisation medical exemptions.
The AIR was recently enhanced to allow providers to view immunisation history immediately it has been recorded, view and print an Immunisation History Statement for patients, record a planned immunisation catch-up and correct any errors.
The training is available online 24/7 meaning pharmacists who provide and record immunisations can work through the modules at their own pace and revisit them at any time for a refresher, with the eLearning program now available for access at humanservices.gov.au.
