Every fall health care facilities across Canada initiate an in-depth influenza vaccine campaign. The World Health Organization and the Canadian National Advisory Committee recommends that 90% of all health care workers (HCW) get immunized against influenza. Research has shown that the vaccination of health care professionals decreases morbidity and mortality rates of patients. Despite this, the current immunization rates for health care workers in Canada range between 40-60% with some long term care facilities only achieving a 30% vaccination rate. To increase vaccination rates innovative strategies are needed. The following practicum report provides an overview, the background, rationale, review of the literature, and key stakeholder consultations which guided the development of the one day educational workshop for engaging flu champions. Morrison, Ross, Kalman and Kemp’s (2013) instructional design model, along with Knowles Principles of Adult Learning (1984) was incorporated throughout the development of the workshop. The advanced nursing competencies: clinical practice, research, leadership, consultation and collaboration were achieved throughout the process.
