Module overview

What is this module about?

This module helps OASV assessors correctly assess, screen, vaccinate, manage and record vaccination compliance. It also helps OASV assessors consistently apply the NSW Health policy:

The policy provides a framework for the assessment, screening and vaccination of healthcare workers, other clinical personnel and students. It aims to minimise the risk of transmission of vaccine preventable diseases.

Select References at the top of this screen to access the policy and other resources.

What are the learning outcomes of this module?

You will gain experience in applying the policy to eight cases. You will be responsible for assessing the compliance of healthcare workers, other clinical personnel and students. While in your work role, you may be responsible for assessing either staff or students, the underlying policy requirements apply in all contexts.

This module will help you to:

  • communicate the quality of evidence required
  • determine compliance status based on acceptable evidence
  • guide people on how to obtain any outstanding requirements
  • determine compliance with the requirements of the policy directive
  • determine when to make someone tuberculosis (TB) compliant
  • determine when to refer someone for TB screening or TB clinical review
  • respond to questions about and resistance to requirements
  • record requirements in ClinConnect or VaxLink.

How long will it take to finish this module?

It will take you approximately 50-60 minutes to finish this module. You do not need to complete it all in one session. When you exit the module, your progress will be saved and you can resume where you left off.
