RCNi measles webinar image

This informative and interactive webinar by RCNi, taking place on 11th June at 12-2 pm, will give you the facts about measles and its potential impact on children’s health, as well the safety and efficacy of the MMR vaccine.

It will give all nurses – including general practice nurses, children’s nurses and health visitors – insight into the barriers preventing parents from vaccinating their children, and practical tips and advice to overcome vaccination concerns through effective communication.

Six years ago, the World Health Organization declared the UK measles free, thanks to a comprehensive measles, mumps and rubella combined vaccination programme. Yet the number of children receiving the MMR vaccine has been falling. Most recently, there have been measles outbreaks, most recently one in the West Midlands causing the UK Health Security Agency to declare a national public health incident.
