Jitsuvax Training Sessions

March 20 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

UKHSA London, NHSE London and LHEP together with the JITSUVAX team are delighted to invite London based health professionals to register for funded vaccine conversation training sessions based on Empathetic Refutational Interview Training (ERI) as part of the JITSUVAX  programme.

About the Programme: JITSUVAX is an EU Horizon 2020 funded global project coordinated by the University of Bristol, which investigates vaccine confidence among healthprofessionals and provides evidence based training to improve confidence and competence when having vaccine conversations.  Training includes motivational interviewing to address hesitancy and dispel myths and misinformation.  Further information can be found through their website  Welcome – Jitsuvax the attached flyers and module syllabus.

Two training options are available:

  1.  90-minute one off interview training workshop aimed at improving confidence and competence in approaching vaccine conversations through building knowledge about motivating factors for vaccination concerns, communication skills and skills to effectively refute vaccine-related misconceptions.
  2. 2-day train-the-trainer workshop to support health professionals to train their colleagues to improve confidence and competence in vaccine conversations. The course will include understanding the background as to how the 90 minute sessions are developed, practical work including how to plan and deliver the training. The train-the-trainer approach allows the programme to be scaled up to support confident conversations across a larger footprint. You do not need to have attended the 90 minute session to take part in the train the trainer workshop.
