NNii works in conjunction with its partner organizations to help improve immunization dialogue at the local level.

NNii has conducted extensive research on knowledge, attitudes and beliefs towards immunization among the public, health care providers and state legislators. The results of this research guide all our efforts, and a paper resulting from the research has been published in the November 2000 issue of Pediatrics.

NNii has developed a patient communication resource kit for healthcare providers to assist them in talking to their patients and addressing questions such as how vaccine recommendations are made, why we vaccinate, and other complex issues. Please feel free to download the entire online resource kit or only the sections that you find most useful. See the kit here.

The resource kit is updated periodically to reflect the latest scientific information. We welcome your comments about our materials and encourage you to complete the Resource Kit questionnaire found in the last section of the kit (fax it to us at 202-973-5880), or online here.

NNii has established formal partnerships with the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society of America (PIDS), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Nurses Association (ANA), the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP), and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) to aid their members in communicating with their patients about vaccines.
