In this modular video-based activity, multidisciplinary faculty provide their perspectives on the changing epidemiology of pneumococcal disease and the protection afforded by a next generation of conjugate vaccines. Hear expert insights on considerations for next generation pneumococcal vaccine use, patient access to these newer vaccines, and strategies for engaging patients. Two case studies drive home practical strategies to implement in day-to-day practice.
• Explain the rationale behind the development of next generation pneumococcal conjugate vaccines
• Identify highest-risk groups who should receive PCV15 versus PCV20
• Formulate strategies to engage patients in shared clinical decision-making per CDC recommendations
