PHAC Immunization Partnership Fund proposal successful

As part of the Manitoba Health Care Professional Associations Coalition, the Association submitted a letter of intent for the Immunization Partnership Fund. The project is titled "Vaccine education program: Building capacity for rural and remote vaccination and vaccine promoters". The proposal was successful and this project has received funding.

The proposed program recognizes that ensuring that vaccine education and training is provided to healthcare providers (HCP) in rural and remote areas in Canada can be especially challenging. Due to geographical location and distances, in addition to social distancing or travel restrictions, conventional education programs such as classes and workshops are not accessible. An interactive education program is required.

The proposed program includes the development of virtual simulation experiences (VSE) that are primarily targeted to the 11 Manitoba-wide HCPs group coalition including First Nations community health representatives in Manitoba.

The project will be led by the Nurse Practitioner Association of Manitoba in collaboration with the Manitoba Professional Associations Coalition and the SpiritRx network organizations.
