Immunizing Healthcare Personnel Against Influenza
On October 20, 2007, the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) convened a roundtable of healthcare personnel to discuss ways to increase the influenza immunization rates of healthcare personnel. The roundtable, which was supported by an unrestricted educational grant from CSL Biotherapies, brought together representatives from across the spectrum of healthcare industries, from acute to post-acute care settings to share insights and best practices with the assembled group. From the roundtable meeting, NFID developed a report on best practices for provider reference and use.
