Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked with Public Health England (PHE) to update the Flu Immunisation e-learning programme to ensure it is in line with the requirements for the 2019/20 season.
The Flu Immunisation e-learning resource is designed to provide all healthcare practitioners involved in delivering the national flu immunisation programme with the knowledge they need to confidently promote high uptake of flu vaccination and effectively deliver the vaccine programme.
The course consists of three knowledge sessions and three assessment sessions. All those undertaking this e-learning should complete the Core Knowledge session and accompanying assessment as this is designed to provide essential knowledge about what flu is and the rationale for, and design of, the annual flu programme. Depending on which session(s) is relevant to your role, you should then complete one or both of the subsequent knowledge and assessment sessions which provide more detailed information about the live and inactivated flu vaccines.
The Flu Immunisation programme is available to access on the e-LfH Hub, ESR and via AICC links.
