Notice to Readers: Availability of Continuing Education CD-ROM Program on Strategies to Increase Adult Vaccination Rates

The Association of Teachers of Preventive Medicine (ATPM) and the National Immunization Program (NIP)/CDC have released "Increasing Adult Vaccination Rates: WhatWorks," an interactive instructional program on CD-ROM that offers primary-care providers strategies to increase vaccination rates among their adult patients.

The program gives users the opportunity to test their knowledge of vaccine usage and explore facts about vaccine-preventable diseases; access reference materials and answers to frequently asked questions; review information about effective strategies (e.g., standing orders, chart reminders, and mailed/telephoned reminders) and test their knowledge of how to best implement these strategies; and develop a customized adult vaccination action plan for their practice.

The CD-ROM features web links to appropriate resources, predominantly those on the NIP/CDC Web site. The program is approved for 2 hours of Continuing Medical Education credit, 2.3 hours Continuing Nursing Education credit, and 0.2 hours Continuing Education units through CDC.

WhatWorks can be ordered free of charge through ATPM at Additional information is available through ATPM, telephone (800) 789-6737, or by e-mail at
