Description:
The world of immunizations in adults has changed dramatically over the past 10 years. From newer vaccines to changing guidelines, the landscape has changed for payers, providers and patients. This webcast will take a close look at those changes for adult immunization. Attendees will be updated on the latest data and guidelines to help increase rates, costs and patient outcomes.

Addressing the Challenges of Adult Vaccinations: Improving Clinical and Economic Outcomes in Immunizations is a webcast that will provide attendees with the latest information on immunizations, costs, burdens and strategies to increase the success of immunizations, and more importantly, patient outcomes and quality of life.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe common barriers to effective immunization practices among diverse patient populations

  • Examine current adult vaccination recommendations for the influenza; pneumococcal; tetanus toxoid, reduced diphtheria toxoid, and acellular pertussis (Tdap); and herpes zoster vaccines

  • Provide recommendations for vaccinations in adult immunocompromised patients

  • Employ the recommendations for the influenza vaccine to optimize immunization efforts and decrease the cost burden of influenza and its complications

  • Identify strategies to address common barriers and misperceptions to effective immunization practices
