NNii has conducted extensive research on knowledge, attitudes and beliefs towards immunization among the public, health care providers and state legislators. The results of this research guide all our efforts, and a paper resulting from the research has been published in the November 2000 issue of Pediatrics.
NNii has spent the last two years developing a patient communication resource kit for health care providers to assist them in talking to their patients and addressing questions such as how vaccine recommendations are made, why we vaccinate, and other complex issues. The resource kit is available online in the Health Professionals section on this Web site. Please feel free to download the kit, or to request a bound copy, download the kit request form or call (877) 341-6644.
The resource kit will be updated periodically to reflect the latest scientific information. We welcome your comments about our materials and encourage you to complete the Resource Kit questionnaire found in the last section of the kit (fax it to us at 202-973-5880), or online here.
NNii has established formal partnerships with the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society of America (PIDS), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Nurses Association (ANA), the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP), and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) to aid their members in communicating with their patients about vaccines.
