The Australian immunisation handbook has been rewritten for a digital platform, giving health professionals in Australia better access to clinical advice on vaccines.
The digital adaptation of the 600-page printed Handbook was recently launched by the Australian Government Department of Health. While the Handbook’s familiar structure remains, it has been transformed into an intuitive, interactive online experience. It has been rewritten in plainer language to make it easier to read onscreen, and help health professionals scan content and understand it faster.
Everyone who administers vaccines will have easy online access to clinical recommendations on the safest and most effective use of vaccines in their practice. Searching is faster, smarter and more comprehensive in the new Handbook. Users can apply search filters as well as browse the 24 diseases that are vaccine preventable in Australia.
Biotext experts wrote, edited and designed the new Handbook content, working closely with Folk, the department’s Communications and Change Branch, and the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance to deliver the digital project.
