You have had a few parents refuse vaccinations for their children and thisconcerns you as you believe that this may leave the child and communities vulnerable tooutbreaks of serious diseases.*Midwifery students:You are working as a midwife in an antenatal clinic. One of your rolesis to promote vaccination against pertussis(whooping cough)for pregnant women. You havehad a few pregnant women decline vaccination. This concerns you as you know that if thepregnant woman is immune to pertussis that passive immunity is passed to her unborn babyto protect them against pertussis when they are newborn until thery are able to beimmunised themselvesVersion 3 AKAXJWKB
You do not think that parents/pregnant women would deliberately expose theirchildren/baby/themselves to the risk of serious disease unless they were guided by a beliefthat immunisation was not safe. You are vaguely aware via media reports that there is ananti-vaccine movement, and you want a quick overview of what it is all about. As most of uswould do, you consult Google, and you find the following information. Read the informationvideo below:The History of Vaccines: History of the anti-vaccination movementThe College of Physicians of Philadelphia (2017)<>You could now choose one (or all) of the following actions:Conclude that parents/pregnant women are entitled to make decisions about theirchild’s/baby’s/own healthcare, even if it is against public health policy.You could question your own belief system – after all, you are basing your practiceon government guidelines and you trust that the government will make decisionsabout health care that are evidence-based, informed by experts in the field, and inthe best interests of Australians. You haven’t checked the literature for evidence ofimmunisation safety yourself.You could investigate whether there is any evidence of harm caused byimmunisation, and to identify information that may influence parent’s/pregnantwoman’s beliefs or fears about immunisation.Naturally, you are a great nurse/midwife with an inquiring mind. You want to be certain thatthere is good evidence that demonstrates that immunisations are safe for children andpregnant women. You want to understand what information has led parents/pregnantwomen to be concerned about immunisation. Finally, you want to be able to have aninformed discussion with the parents/pregnant women about their concerns based oncurrent evidence to enable them make the right decision for their children/babies andthemselves.*Please do not include this page of background information when you submit theassessment template to learnonline.Version 3 AKAXJWKB
