Summary:

Measles is primarily a disease of childhood, but it can also occur in adolescents and adults. It is one of the most highly infectious human pathogens known. With exposure, up to 90% of susceptible individuals develop the disease. Measles is transmitted directly person-to-person via contact with respiratory droplets. Airborne transmission via aerosolized droplet nuclei has also been documented in closed areas (e.g., examination rooms), where the virus can remain suspended in the air for several hours. This module provides information for RNs, APNs, and physicians about measles and parental concerns regarding the safety of the MMR vaccine for their children.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to provide information for RNs, APNs, and physicians about measles and about parental concerns regarding the safety of the MMR vaccine for their children. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe the signs, symptoms, and complications of measles cases
  • List three of the most common MMR vaccine adverse effects and contraindications for the MMR vaccine
  • Discuss three reasons the measles vaccination refusal rate is increasing across the U.S.
