Course Title: Miller’s Review of Critical Vaccine Studies: Important Scientific Papers Summarized
The benefits of vaccination are well–publicized. However, many healthcare professionals and the patients they serve are unaware of the medical literature providing evidence of serious vaccine side effects. This study course will provide chiropractors with substantial knowledge of peer–reviewed medical research that is critical of vaccination. At the end of the course, practitioners will be able to recognize serious adverse reactions associated with childhood and adult vaccination, discuss significant findings in important studies documenting vaccine risks, confirm the documented benefits incurred from natural infections, and assist patients in making informed healthcare decisions. This activity will supplement each chiropractor’s current understanding of vaccine benefits with scientific data regarding potential vaccine detriments, revise non–evidence-based beliefs with the latest biomedical findings, and increase professional competence in weighing individual vaccine benefit–to–risk ratios. It will also improve patient trust and the doctor–patient relationship.
