NCIRS in partnership with The University of Sydney has recently published the Sharing Knowledge About Immunisation (SKAI) website for parents and carers.

SKAI provides a communication system and suite of resources for healthcare workers and parents/carers of babies and young children designed to support conversations about childhood vaccination. The SKAI parent site contains information about vaccines included on the National Immunisation Program, as well as the recommended schedule, and answers the questions parents ask in an accessible and easily interpreted format.

Visit the SKAI parent site at www.talkingaboutimmunisation.org.au.

In the coming months, SKAI will launch the remainder of the SKAI package – including printable resources for parents in Arabic, Simplified Chinese and Vietnamese and a healthcare worker website accompanied by an e-learning module to assist health professionals with conducting satisfying and effective conversations, ultimately encouraging parents towards vaccination.
