Final Report

The project team (see Project Collaborators), funded in November 2008 by the Ministry of Health and Health Research Council of New Zealand Partnership Programme, worked with end-users and health professionals to develop and test resources designed to communicate information about infant immunisation to mothers-to-be.

This project was completed in July 2010 and had four objectives:

1) to develop appropriate immunisation communication resources;
2) to determine if the resources improved recall and comprehension of information;
3) to report on the outcomes in relation to immunisation uptake at six weeks and again at three months;
4) to evaluate the resources and suggest recommendations for modification.
