(3)Direcció General d'Ordenació Professional i Regulació Sanitària Introduction Immunization is the procedure through which a person is vaccinated by a healthcare professional (HP), to induce specific immunity. Vaccination errors (VE) awareness may be important because of possible reduction in vaccine efficacy, presentation of adverse effects and confidence impairment in HPs and vaccines, according to patient safety perspective . It is important to assess the scope of VE in order to plan HP training in order to reduce its impact. Goal To know the degree of error perception, perceived frequency, conditioning factors , level of knowledge about VE prevention and the actions to be taken in front of each one of them. Methods On-line survey carried out on HP in vaccination centers (VC) of 2 health regions of Catalonia. Results 720 surveys were sent and the response rate was 31% (232). 92.7% were responded by nurses. 52.6% had been working more than 20 years. Degree of perception of VE was 66.1%, 22.2% had personal perception it happened some time ago, while 84.5% believed it happened in the VC to other HP. The main reasons declared for VE were work overload, similar packaging and brand changes. 60% knew the procedure for post- VE. Conclusion Majority of HP are aware of the fact that EV is committed. Errors occur because HP are not aware of the nature of VE and because there is no knowledge of an existing notification system for VE reporting. We believe that training and EV notification systems are necessary.
