  • How is the Skills Workshop different from CVU?

    The Skills Workshop is run for a much smaller group than our Clinical Vaccinology Updates. It is less data heavy and involves small group activities and participation in simulated scenarios, enabling participants to engage in their learning in a different way to CVU.

  • Who is the Skills Workshop for?

    The Skills Workshop is for any immunisation provider who is looking to improve their vaccine communication skills, ability to differentiate between acute stress responses and anaphylaxis and prevent and manage vaccine errors. The workshop is particularly beneficial to those new to immunising or who have not immunised in sometime, however, immunisers with all levels of experience are welcome.

  • Do I have to take part in the simulated scenarios?

    Yes! In the morning you will be able to hear from immunisation experts on adverse events following immunisation, management and prevention of vaccine errors, differentiating between an acute stress response and anaphylaxis and communicating with a vaccine hesitant individual. The afternoon is spent in a small group engaging in simulated scenarios enabling you to put the skills you have built knowledge on in the morning into practice. The simulations are conducted in a confidential and supportive environment, there is no pass or fail, only opportunities to learn and refine your practice!

  • How much pre-reading is required?

    There is approximately 2 hours of recommended pre-reading prior to the workshop.

  • What about parking?

    Parking is available onsite at RCH at a cost of $34 for the full day.  

    Alternatively, time-limited on-street parking is available in the surrounding streets.  

    The Royal Children’s Hospital is also accessible via tram routes 57, 58 and 59. 

  • Is lunch provided?

    Yes! This event is a fully catered event, with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea provided.
