Semaine européenne de la vaccination 2010 : impact de la formation proposée aux professionnels de santé en Lorraine

Abstract : Vaccination is undoubtedly the best means of prevention in fighting infectious disease. In order to make vaccinating easier, it is necessary for health professionals to stay informed about the latest advances with regards to the vaccination schedule. This is precisely the aim of the training session provided through the European Immunization Week in the region of Lorraine, France. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the impact of this training course on the participants' knowledge. After having made some reminders regarding vaccination, then having presented the European Immunization Week, especially with regards to their activities in Lorraine, we outlined the methodology used in our study. In fact, we drew up a questionnaire that we submitted to the participants to evaluate their level both before and after the training. We then analyzed the results to determine the impact. 160 questionnaires were distributed with a valid response rate of 74%. Our analysis clearly shows a statistically significant improvement in the results obtained from the questionnaire and, hence, in the health professionals' knowledge thanks to this training. These positive results concern all of the questionnaires with an average score improvement of 25%. These same results can be found among the majority of the questions and no matter the participant's profession. As a matter of fact, 100% of those questioned felt that they have improved their knowledge, 98,5% found the training interesting and 94,92% felt that this training course should be repeated for health professionals. Given these results, we can, therefore, ascertain that it would be useful to repeat this particular program for future sessions of the European Immunization Week.
