Implementation Steps (Research and Review, Development of Toolkits)

With the aim of enhancing European knowledge on HCW immunization, HProImmune will:

  • • review, summarize and widely disseminate existing information and best practices
  • • explore behaviors and barriers regarding HCW immunization through qualitative analysis.

This knowledge will be compiled in a comprehensive communication toolkit addressing the needs and perspectives of medical personnel in primary care as well as hospital setting. It will also enable Public Health (PH) authorities and hospital administrators to plan and organize successful immunization activities contributing thus to the achievement of national strategic goals for increasing vaccination coverage, especially in the case of seasonal influenza.

The HProImmune toolkit will be piloted to also provide evidence of its effectiveness.

The consortium will keep the project focused on a limited number of priority vaccines and deliverables will be applicable to as many MS possible.
