Immunization Projects

Immunization Projects

APTR has a long history of working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center on Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD), to develop and enhance educational and training programs around immunizations.  Since 1990, APTR has partnered with CDC NCIRD and other professional organizations to assess immunization training needs of health professionals and develop appropriate programs, publications workshops, presentations, articles, and websites based on those assessments.

  • Teaching Immunization for Medical Education (TIME) [Link]
    The TIME modules provide ready-to-use instructional materials that can be integrated into existing medical curricula. The modules include vaccine indications and contraindications, immunization schedules, and recommendations on efficient ways to increase vaccination levels.
  • You Call The Shots: Web-based Training Course [Link]
    You Call the Shots is an interactive, web-based immunization training course. It consists of a series of modules that discuss vaccine-preventable diseases and explain the latest recommendations for vaccine use. Each module provides learning opportunities, self-test practice questions, reference and resource materials, and an extensive glossary.
  • Immunization Resources for Undergraduate Nursing
    In 2015, it became clear that the recent climate around immunizations, advancements in teaching methods for health professions education, and the practice of nursing called for enhanced immunization resources for training and education of nurses. APTR and CDC formed the Immunization Resources for Undergraduate Nursing Education (IRUN) committee to offer recommendations on how to increase immunization content in undergraduate nursing curricula and ensure a future nursing workforce that supports the Healthy People 2020 initiative‚Äôs immunization objectives.   

  • IRUN Curriculum Framework: A Guide to Integrating Content in Prelicensure Nursing Practice [Link]
    The IRUN Framework serves as a guide for nursing faculty on integrating immunization content into a curriculum. Faculty are encouraged to assess existing curricula and incorporate appropriate elements. The Framework covers foundational topics, it does not provide instructions for teaching immunization in an academic setting.
  • IRUN Case Studies [To be released in April 2020]
    The case studies can be used to meet the needs of diverse curricula. An individual scenario may be inserted into a presentation to emphasize a teaching point or an entire set may be used for a class.
