Join us as we explore how healthcare providers in a rural Kansas county work together to ensure that the population is vaccinated for influenza each year.  Presenters will discuss the role the local hospital, primary care clinics, health department, Tribal Health Services, nursing home, home health/hospice and assisted living play in meeting the needs of the most vulnerable population(s).

Target Audience:     

Hospitals, primary care clinics, pharmacies, home health, public health, nursing homes, and all community partners who will benefit from a panel discussion addressing influenza vaccination are invited to join.

Objectives:

Upon completion of the WebEx, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify a high-risk population for a vaccination
  2. Identify ways to partner with the healthcare community to increase vaccination rates among the target population
  3. Develop protocols to share vaccination status with the medical community
