Immunisation on Neonatal Units
Immunisation is a crucial component of preventive healthcare and it is especially important for neonates, who are at an increased risk of contracting infectious diseases due to their immature immune systems. Neonatal units are healthcare facilities that provide specialized care for premature and sick infants, and immunisation is a vital aspect of the care provided in these units.
The Immunisation on Neonatal Units online medical course equips newly qualified/novice nurses, neonatal nurses, and other members of multi-professional teams with enhanced knowledge and skill in the administration and management of neonatal immunisations, including vaccination for Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV).
