What Attendees Say About the Workshops
This is an excellent resource for the provider in empowering your personnel to keep patients safe and up to date.
This workshop was well organized, informative, and professionally led. I would highly recommend attending this workshop.
Little Rock Workshop
I highly recommend this conference. A lot of information in a short time yet it was not overwhelming. Each speaker answered all questions.
Our workshop was…led by a deep field of nationally ranked authorities who literally wrote the book on vaccine preventable diseases. Everyone was very knowledgeable, down to earth and friendly. A well-paced, informal workshop with great audience participation. This is everything you need if starting from square one to implement standing orders for vaccines.
Not only does this workshop provide great education, but it provides you with the tools and resources you need to implement this within your practice.
This workshop had pertinent topics and expert presenters that provided a wealth of information!
The Take A Stand workshop will prepare you with everything you need to implement standing orders for vaccination and overcome any barriers that previously stood in your way.
This workshop was very engaging and informative. I am new to immunizations and this workshop was able to clarify the importance of standing orders.
All RN’s, LPNs, Nurse Practitioners, etc. need to take this class due to the very useful information provided in the workshop.
As a new manager and nursing supervisor, this workshop was instrumental in helping me understand setting up standing orders and implementation.
This workshop gave us great ideas and information. Can’t wait to go back and start the process to get our Standing Orders going.
The information in this workshop was very timely. Increasing access to adult vaccination is challenging. These standing orders greatly simplify the process for clinicians.
The right mix of education and inspiration surrounding adult immunizations.
The workshop gave me hope that I can help streamline patient care in our practices.
If you are giving vaccines in your practice, you need to attend this workshop.
This workshop will/has improved my skill in writing, implementing SO’s. I look forward to sharing this knowledge with all of our contracted providers. Implementing SO’s will improve immunization rates in WA state and shift the paradigm in pre visit immunization culture.
Fantastic – great expertise, resources, tools and advice. THANKS!
What Immunization Leaders Say About Standing Orders
“The American Academy of Physician Assistants is deeply committed to increasing adult immunization rates and strongly supports the use of standing orders to administer vaccines to adults. In short, standing orders help PAs deploy their full skill set efficiently and effectively by reducing unneeded steps in clinic operations and capturing often missed opportunities to vaccinate.”
Director, Clinical Education, American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA)
“Standing orders are one of the most effective and cost-effective methods to raise immunization rates. For standing orders to be most effective, a routine trigger is needed, such as vaccination as a vital sign.”
Professor, Department of Family Medicine, University of Pittsburgh
“Using standing orders for all routine vaccines is the key to improving immunization rates in a medical practice. Assessment of the vaccination status should be a part of the vital sign process for all patients. A clinic vaccine champion can manage unusual situations and ensure the correct application of all standing orders. Standing orders enable us to Vaccinate Today!”
Professor of Family Medicine, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center St. Margaret
“Immunization of adults is a complex process, but attention and standardization of procedures via the use of standing orders in medical practices have demonstrated major impact on patient care. Using standing orders ensures that each patient will receive the best preventive care at every visit. Not by chance, but by design.”
Clinical Director, Vaccine and International Health and Travel Clinics
“Implementing standing orders in our practice helped eliminate the uncertainty that the clinical staff felt as to which vaccines should be given to which patients. Now clinical staff members are empowered to discuss vaccine status with patients and to administer the appropriate vaccines without delay or hesitation. This has allowed the entire office to play an integral part in increasing the number of adult patients who receive needed immunizations.”
Practice Manager, Gordon Gold MD & Associates University of Pittsburgh Medical Center
“Standing orders take the guesswork out of a crowded vaccine schedule. For a busy clinician, they can be the perfect failsafe.”
Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases and Director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
“At UnitedHealthcare, we encourage medical practices to implement standing orders because we know they increase vaccination rates.”
National Medical Director, UnitedHealthcare
“Standing orders help to improve practice efficiency and enable standardization in vaccinating adult patients. The National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) supports the use of standing orders to increase vaccination rates among adults.”
