Documentary: Every Last Child
Documentary - Every Last Child: In 2012, polio persisted in only three countries and the number of victims was steadily decreasing. Pakistan was the key - with over 80% of all endemic cases. However, when the Pakistan Taliban issued a ban against the polio vaccination program, and incited fatal attacks against vaccinators, Pakistan's vaccination campaign was thrown into disarray. Since 2012, close to 80 Pakistani vaccinators and the police officers assigned to protect them have been targeted and killed. At this critical time, when we are closer than ever before to global eradication, increased international support and commitment can see the end of polio, once and for all. This moving and enlightening film by award-winning filmmaker Tom Roberts reminds us not only of the horrors of polio, ignorance and terrorism, but of the miracle of effective vaccines. Opens in theaters this month.

How to Give a Strong Recommendation to Adult Patients Who Require Vaccination
How to Give a Strong Recommendation to Adult Patients Who Require Vaccination: In this educational module from Medscape Internal Medicine, learn how to strengthen vaccine recommendations for adult patients, including videos demonstrating quick and effective ways to share compelling information (see pages 3-5). Patients are more willing to be vaccinated if they understand their risk of acquiring a particular vaccine-preventable disease and the potential consequences if they were to develop this infection. Share tailored information about why the vaccine is right for an individual patient, given that person's risk factors, and explain the potential costs of acquiring the disease.
