Pneumococcal Vaccination Across the Lifespan Integrating Vaccine Recommendations

This informative handout for the NP provides a summary of the FDA-approved pneumococcal vaccines as well as the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendations for their use. Handy resources in this tool include QR codes that direct you to CDC information and the PneumoRecs VaxAdvisor clinical app which will help you make a quick and accurate determination as to which, if any, pneumococcal vaccination is appropriate for your patient.

Patient Education Tools and Resources

AANP-Developed MS Resources

AANP, in collaboration with educational partner Med-IQ and four expert NPs, has developed a series of educational resources to help NPs start important conversations with patients about strategies for living well with MS. The goal of these resources is to improve the recognition of potential MS resources and encourage patients to discuss issues they may be having with their NPs. The development of these materials is supported by an educational grant from Teva Pharmaceuticals.
