Posttest on Puzzles in Pediatric Vaccination

See what you have absorbed this month from our puzzling cases on MMR, Quadracel, Gardasil, and other ped vaccines.

This month’s Special Report offered a series of clinical case quizzes in pediatric vaccination that were meant to challenge your knowledge of standard immunization practices.

• When should you say no the MMR vaccine?

• What is the best way to talk to anxious parents about HPV vaccination for a child?

• What is on and what is off label use of Quadracel (DTaP/IPV) for a child with a fever?

• Can you do the calculations to bring a new pediatric patient up-to-date on vaccinatinos and also explain it all to his mother?

In the Special Report introduction, we presented a short pretest so you could see what you already knew about navigating the unforeseen in clinical practice.

Now we offer the same questions in this post-test so you can gauge how much you have learned. Links to all sections of the Special Report are offered at the end of the posttest. Good luck!
