Activity Overview 

Measles is a harmful yet preventable disease that carries multiple sequelae requiring hospitalization. Due to falsified and retracted literature, the measles vaccine may be viewed as a cause of autism, which is categorically untrue. This has led to increased global morbidity and misinformation about the safety and efficacy of vaccines, including the measles vaccine. 

The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education with Commendation.

These activities were planned to meet the educational needs of pharmacists who encounter an unvaccinated patient who presents with signs and symptoms of measles. 

After completing this activity, the learner should be able to…

  • Discuss the clinical presentation of an individual suspected to have measles.
  • Identify public health processes and reporting to track measles cases. 

  • Introduction and Announcements
