Contrer la réticence face à la vaccination dans les programmes de vaccination, les cliniques et les cabinets

Le présent point de pratique contient des conseils fondés sur des données probantes à l’intention des programmes de vaccination provinciaux et territoriaux, des cliniques et des cabinets afin de contrer la réticence face à la vaccination et d’améliorer les taux de vaccination. Les étapes à privilégier s’établissent comme suit : 1) définir les sous-groupes sous-vaccinés (ce qui exige la tenue de registres), les facteurs responsables de la réticence face à la vaccination et les interventions ciblées; 2) enseigner les pratiques exemplaires à tous les dispensateurs de soins qui participent à la vaccination; 3) faire appel à des stratégies fondées sur des données probantes pour accroître les taux de vaccination, y compris les rappels, un emplacement des cliniques et des heures d’ouverture pratiques et des communications adaptées; 4) informer les enfants, les adolescents et les adultes de l’importance de la vaccination pour la santé et 5) travailler en collaboration avec les régions sociosanitaires provinciales et territoriales et avec le gouvernement fédéral, les organismes non gouvernementaux, les leaders communautaires et les services de santé.

Cost-effectiveness of sex-neutral HPV vaccination in Sweden, accounting for herd immunity and sexual behaviour

The aim was to assess cost-effectiveness of expanding the Swedish HPV-vaccination program to include preadolescent boys, by comparing health effects and costs of HPV-related disease, with a sex-neutral vaccination program versus only vaccinating girls.

Des stratégies potentielles pour améliorer les taux de vaccination infantile au Canada : Document de principes de la SCP

Les taux de vaccination sont sous-optimaux au Canada. Certains pays utilisent des stratégies comme des preuves de vaccination obligatoires pour entrer à la garderie ou à l’école et des incitations financières. D’autres stratégies pourraient fonctionner dans le contexte canadien, telles que la remise, à l’entrée à l’école, d’un dossier de tous les vaccins administrés, la création de registres de vaccination provinciaux ou territoriaux, l’information aux parents et aux enfants d’âge scolaire au sujet des maladies évitables par la vaccination et l’adoption de mesures afin que les parents puissent s’assurer plus facilement de la vaccination complète de leurs enfants.

Effectiveness of a hospital-based postnatal parent education intervention about pain management during infant vaccination: a randomized controlled trial

Parents have reported that they want to learn how to reduce pain in infants during vaccinations. The objective was to compare different levels of intensity of postnatal education about pain mitigation on parental self-reported use of interventions at future infant vaccinations. Hospital-based postnatal education increased parental use of pain interventions at infant vaccinations and can be added to existing education.

Human papillomavirus vaccine for children and adolescents: CPS Position Statement

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is known to cause genital warts, cervical cancer, penile cancer, anal cancer and oropharyngeal cancer. In North America, the lifetime cumulative incidence of HPV infection is estimated at more than 70% for all HPV types combined. A safe and effective vaccine against nine HPV types is available. HPV vaccine should be administered routinely to all girls and boys between the ages of 9 and 13 years of age. All youth who have not received the vaccine in a routine program should receive the vaccine in a ‘catch-up’ program. Physicians caring for children and youth should advocate for funding and implementation of universal HPV vaccine programs.
