This was an excellent resource for any health care professional that has contact with parents professionally and personally. I frequently have parents or parents-to-be quizzing me on vaccines, their efficacy, and their importance. It has been difficult for me to deliver information on vaccine importance and safety in the past without allowing emotions from witnessing the effects that vaccine-preventable diseases can have to seep through. This education provided tools to listen and validate parent concerns and still deliver important information. I wish this could be made public for parents and others as the speaker was highly accomplished and qualified while also personable.
