Educational Series: Countering Vaccine Misinformation: A Practical Guide for Healthcare Providers

The following has been passed on to PSNZ to share with you.

Countering Vaccine Misinformation: A Practical Guide for Healthcare Providers.

This article discusses vaccine misinformation and how it can undermine vaccine confidence and lead to vaccine hesitancy. Evidence-based strategies for countering vaccine hesitancy and misinformation are summarised. Techniques to support healthcare providers when engaging with individuals whose vaccine hesitancy has resulted from exposure to vaccine misinformation are provided.

I have provided input and independent commentary for this article, as has my colleague Dr Amy Chan, who is a clinical pharmacist academic with a special interest in this topic.

We hope you find the attached review useful (you can also view the review online) and, as always, we welcome your feedback and comments.

Please feel free to pass this on to your colleagues if you think they would find it helpful.

Kind Regards,

Associate Professor Helen Petousis-Harris
