“Strive for five”
We all know it’s part of the RACGP standards and discussed throughout the Immunisation Handbook. There are plenty of free resources through your local department of health and documents for free download. As manager, we assume it’s happening.
Here’s my quick challenge for you. One day this week, ask your nurse to summarize the cold chain policy, describe the way the vaccine fridge is stocked and temperature checked, and ask “What would you do if there is a breach?”
Don’t wait for a breach to learn that this is an area your staff need training on. If you would like access to free resources related to this, simply drop me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org
