IAC's guidebook Hepatitis B: What Hospitals Need to Do to Protect Newborns helps hospitals and birthing centers establish, implement, and optimize their birth dose policies

IAC's comprehensive guidebook Hepatitis B: What Hospitals Need to Do to Protect Newborns is a complete resource for helping hospitals and birthing centers establish, implement, and optimize their birth dose policies. The book breaks new ground as a policy and best practices guide for newborn hepatitis B immunization. AAFP, AAP, ACOG, and CDC endorse administering hepatitis B vaccine prior to hospital discharge and all have provided review of this guide.

In July 2016, two sections of Chapter 3 were revised to bring up to date the information about the timing of postvaccination testing for high-risk infants whose mothers are HBsAg positive. (CDC now recommends testing at 9–12 months of age.)

You can order a soft-cover, spiral-bound, color copy of this updated 84-page resource for $20 plus shipping. Discounts are available for those ordering in bulk.

Check out the Shop IAC: Hepatitis B: What Hospitals Need to Do to Protect Newborns page on IAC's website for more information on ordering this valuable resource.
