SKAI – Sharing Knowledge About Immunisation is designed to give you confidence that the parents you see have access to credible information about vaccination that supports your recommendations for their children.

The SKAI website for healthcare workers contains:

  • information to help you recognise parents who can benefit from your time and expertise (and avoid extended or confrontational interactions)

  • information to help you respond to parents’ questions or concerns

  • a recommendation for structuring your vaccination consultations

  • tips we gathered from experienced clinicians.

We have translated information about the vaccinations recommended at each milestone into Arabic, Chinese and Vietnamese. The website also contains information about vaccination for special risk groups and information about referral pathways available in your state or territory. Also refer to Specialist immunisation services.

You can access the SKAI website for healthcare professionals by completing the SKAI eLearning module1. This module is designed to help you adapt your clinical communication skills to meet the needs of all parents, whether they are ready to vaccinate, have questions or intend to decline vaccination altogether.

SKAI is designed to help you continue to improve the quality and safety of the care you provide to your community.
