Research

Give it Your Best Shot - short film and continuous medical education events for healthcare providers
This knowledge translation project explores strategies for vaccine counselling in different healthcare settings and provides opportunities for multidisciplinary discussion and collaboration among BC frontline healthcare providers.

Optimizing Vaccine Uptake in Solid Organ Transplant Recipients
Children who have had organ transplant are at increased risk of infections, including infections with vaccine preventable diseases. This project will collect baseline data on vaccine uptake rates after solid organ transplant at BCCH and identify opportunities and strategies for optimizing vaccination uptake.
