    Article - En anglais

    Context. - Vaccines are underused in the United States, resulting in needless morbidity.

    Many experts have concluded that clinician education is critical to increasing the nation's vaccination rates.


    - To develop and evaluate case-based curricular materials on immunizations that promote preventive medicine skills.

    Setting and Participants

    - Medical schools and primary care residency programs from 20 institutions across the United States participated in the Teaching Immunization for Medical Education (TIME) project.

    - Pretest and posttest results were obtained on a total of 1122 learners for all modules combined.

    For the MCTS method, mean scores increased from the 10-item pretest to the posttest by 3.1 items for measles, 3.8 for influenza, 1.8 for hepatitis B, 3.9 for pertussis, 1.9 for adult vaccination, 1.9 for childhood vaccination, and 2. (...)
