                                      Pertussis is an extremely contagious respiratory infection. Increasing vaccination coverage has dramatically reduced the incidence of whooping cough among Australian children. However, it remains a highly infectious and dangerous disease. In a household where someone has whooping cough, an estimated 80-90% of the unimmunised contacts of that person will acquire the disease.

                                      This course has been designed to provide nurses with an understanding of pertussis in Australia. It looks at immunisation rates, symptoms, preventing pertussis using various strategies, incentives and delivering immunisation services.
