Influenza Adherence Tool Kit: Implementation and Evaluation Among Allogeneic Hematopoietic Transplantation Recipients
Allogeneic transplantation is associated with significant complications, such as influenza, a common virus in the post-transplantation setting that can be detrimental to patients. Therefore, patients should adhere to influenza vaccinations.
.The objectives of this project were to improve influenza adherence rates from 2015-2016, to increase transplantation recipients' knowledge of the importance of vaccination, and to evaluate the barriers to and facilitators of adherence rates to influenza vaccinations.
.A pre-/postscreening survey was used, as well as a tool kit with an education pamphlet and financial incentive, and a reminder letter.
.Forty-eight eligible patients participated in the study, and 32 completed the prescreening questionnaire. The adherence rate for the 2015-2016 influenza season improved compared to the baseline vaccination rate. The findings revealed a strong association between provider recommendation and vaccination adherence.
