    ACNM and ASTHO collaboration on Immunizations

    • ACNM surveyed its membership in December 2013 used the survey results to develop materials for midwives, including talking points, and materials for women and their families. About 940 members responded to the survey. Over 80% of the respondents reported that they either screen or provide immunizations to their clients. The biggest information needs identified by the survey include lack of knowledge of the safety of immunizations, talking points for clients, contraindications/indications, updates on the schedule, and the state Immunization Information Systems. Barriers for those not offering immunizations were reimbursement, not enough interested patients, and not enough storage space. This project hopes to address these needs.
    • Following the dissemination of ACNM's influenza and immunization project materials, ACNM members were surveyed a second time in order to gauge the effectiveness of the resources and to gain further insights to improve immunization uptake among women. The final survey was sent out to ACNM members in June of 2014. The results were used to target specific gaps and guide the development of future resources.
