Webinar: Talking to Patients about Vaccine Misinformation

Thu, 1/19/2023 at 11:00 am - Thu, 1/19/2023 at 12:00 pm (PDT)

Comagine Health invites you to join us for the January Monthly Immunization Learning Event (MILE). This month's event focuses on strategies for talking to patients about vaccine misinformation.

Misinformation spreads like wildfire and is just as difficult to combat. In this presentation, college librarian and educator Kim Reed provides context to the challenges presented by misinformation in health care and shares a set of strategies for how providers can guide patients towards credible information. 

Session attendees will:

  • Understand the complexity of the information landscape patients navigate daily;
  • Recognize the importance of approaching misinformed patients with an open mind; and
  • Become familiar with the REEL method of addressing patient misinformation.
