NSW/ACT ATU Pre-Conference Courses

Immunistation Training & Refresher

From 1 January 2019, pharmacists in NSW are able to provide private MMR and dTpa immunisations to people aged 16 years and over (in addition to influenza). A dedicated immunisation course and refresher training course will be run as a preconference workshop at ATU on Thursday 5 March at Crowne Plaza Terrigal. This is a great opportunity for pharmacists to become accredited immunisers, and for trained pharmacist immunisers to refresh their knowledge on injection technique, particularly subcutaneous administration.
