In order to understand their barriers and needs, focus groups were formed with 278 physicians, nurses, infection-control personnel, and policy-makers in 7 EU MS. Several implications for the development of promotional initiatives were identified including the need to overcome organizational barriers, to sensitize HCWs about the importance of immunization and to provide specific up-to-date information about vaccinations covering prevalence of diseases, protection years, side effects, administration times, antibody examinations, costs and immunization settings.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/13551||ISSN:||19399278||DOI:||10.1080/00185868.2017.1365571||Rights:||© Taylor & Francis Group, LLC||Type:||Article|
