PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: This module is the seventeenth in a series titled Immunization: You Call the Shots and focuses on Zoster and its related vaccines.
The series is designed to provide key immunization knowledge in a very basic step-by-step manner. It presents practice-oriented content about immunization. It does not discuss the denser more complex material regarding epidemiology, disease transmission, etc.
It addresses an important audience for immunization training, the new provider or the medical or nursing student. It is also an excellent review for a seasoned healthcare provider. It has often been used by nursing schools to introduce their students to the comprehensive core knowledge about immunization.
OBJECTIVES: At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to:
For shingles (herpes zoster), describe the causative agent and associated diseases.
For shingles, list the groups at highest risk.
For shingles, identify those for whom routine immunization is recommended.
For zoster vaccine, describe characteristics of the vaccine.
Locate resources relevant to current immunization practice.
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.
