NOTE: If you attended the live CE webinar titled "Adult Pneumococcal Vaccinations: The Vital Role of the Pharmacist in Improving Outcomes" that was held on October 27 and November 2, 2016, AND received CE credit (i.e. a pharmacist CE statement with ACPE Universal Activity Number 0221-9999-16-323-L01-P), you are NOT eligible to also receive CE credit for this home-study activity.
Every year in the U.S., pneumococcal disease kills thousands of adults, and many
more end up hospitalized, yet vaccination rates lag behind public health standards.
Pharmacists are in a strong position to ensure that those adults of highest need receive
timely vaccination according to the most recent national recommendations.
This activity will provide you with strategies for improving vaccination rates in eligible patients and underserved populations, as well as tactics for overcoming common barriers to improve outcomes and reduce the high burden of this disease on the health system. Expert faculty will present case scenarios.
The target audience for this activity includes pharmacists working in community, long-term care and health-system settings. At the completion of this webinar, the participant will be able to:
