Activity Description

Despite heightened awareness of preventive measures for influenza and COVID-19, HCPs (heath care providers) in the primary care setting face the challenge of vaccine acceptance. The enduring risk posed by vaccine-preventable diseases such as Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), shingles, and pneumococcal disease, particularly in the older population, often leads to significant health complications. This situation emphasizes the critical need for primary care providers (PCPs) to remain abreast of the continuously evolving vaccination landscape.

This activity is directed towards U.S. primary care physicians, NPs, and PAs including those who are community-based, practice in large ACOs; in rural communities; and who serve patients in underserved areas.

After completing this CE activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Accurately assess the health burden of vaccine-preventable diseases, including RSV, pneumococcal disease, and herpeszoster (shingles) in older adults, and its impact on health disparities and healthcare systems.

  • Employ the latest clinical data, encompassing safety profiles, efficacy rates, and administration schedules for new andemerging vaccines in accordance with guideline recommendations.

  • Correctly apply evidence-based approaches to address patient-level challenges, barriers, and perceptions related tovaccines in older adults, especially among individuals from historically marginalized communities, to support vaccine uptakeand completion.

In support of improving patient care, Medical Learning Institute, Inc. is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
