Pearls for Immunization Practice (Webinar)
An online self-learning course for all interested immunization providers. It takes approximately 90 minutes to compete. It is especially useful for those physicians new to immunization practice in BC. This course is also suitable as a refresher course for physicians who already have a theoretical and clinical understanding of immunization practice and would like to update their knowledge.
The course was developed by the British Columbia Immunization Committee Professional Education Working Group and UBC Continuing Professional Development (UBC CPD).
