Education Program for Immunization Competencies

Immunization is a complex field, and vaccines are being given by a growing number and wider range of health professionals. The CPS is an experienced leader in this area, and has provided interdisciplinary education to thousands of learners since 2002.

The program is based on the document Immunization Competencies for Health Professionals, developed with the Public Health Agency of Canada, a landmark national consensus guideline on education and training for immunization providers.
