The Perfect Consult

 

IMMUNIZATIONS VIDEO PLAYLIST
A pharmacist uses a routine prescription pick-up as an opportunity to educate an elderly patient with chronic conditions about her increased risk of serious complications of vaccine-preventable illnesses. Along with emphasizing recommendations for high dose flu, herpes zoster, and pneumonia immunizations at this visit, pharmacy-based strategies to enhance vaccination adherence, including patient education materials and text reminders, are used.
A pharmacist addresses common misconceptions about the flu vaccine with a healthy, young adult patient and highlights the convenience of the immunization services provided in the pharmacy. This successful consultation emphasizes the importance of educating patients with vaccine hesitancy and providing a strong recommendation for vaccination.
A pharmacy team works together to improve immunization rates by demonstrating best practices for patient identification, vaccine education, and raising awareness of vaccination services available in the pharmacy. Because a trained technician initiates the conversation regarding immunization with a patient, a pharmacist is presented with a great opportunity to consult a patient on valuable clinical information about the flu and other immunizations.
