Immunization: You Call The Shots

WB2144: Immunization:  You Call the Shots-Module Eleven-Hepatitis B

You Call the Shots is a series of interactive, web-based, immunization training courses that present practice-oriented immunization content in a step-by-step, self-study format. These courses are ideal for medical or nursing students, new vaccination providers, or seasoned health care providers seeking a review.

You Call the Shots consists of a series of modules that discuss vaccine-preventable diseases and the latest recommendations for vaccine storage, administration, and use. Each module provides learning opportunities, self-test knowledge checks, reference and resource materials, and an extensive glossary.

This module is the 11th in the series and focuses on hepatitis B and its related vaccines.

At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to:

  1. For Hepatitis B, describe this disease, including the causative agent.
  2. For Hepatitis B, list the groups at highest risk.
  3. For Hepatitis B, identify those for whom routine immunization is recommended.
  4. For Hepatitis B, describe characteristics of the vaccine used to prevent this disease. (Characteristics may include schedule, contraindications, and/or adverse reactions.)
  5. Locate resources relevant to current immunization practice.
  6. Implement disease detection and prevention health care services (e.g., smoking cessation, weight reduction, diabetes screening, blood pressure screening, immunization services) to prevent health problems and maintain health.
