Safe Storage and Handling of Vaccines

Although this subject is perceived as very 'boring' I think it's vitally important to ensure vaccines are administered in optimum condition for maximum protection.  I've written a CPD article due to be published in Nursing Standard this Wednesday (19th February 2014) on the topic - and have tried hard to also make it interesting.......well I thought it was anyway!   And check out 'time out' activity no. 3.  To access Nursing Standard see here

Below is an NHS poster to help you keep your vaccines healthy as well.  Click on the link below to obtain the PDF.

The first joint RCN and Travel Health Training Ltd. conference and exhibition.

I was delighted when the Royal College of Nursing asked me to work with them to create this conference.  Those of you that remember the highly successful RCN Travel Health Forum conferences that were held from 2000 to 2010 will hopefully be pleased to read of the return of this style of meeting once more.  To view the conference flyer, click on the image below. The exciting programme can be seen on page 2 and the booking form on page 3. The link to the RCN website to book a place online is HERE
