JIU-JITSU WITH MISINFORMATION IN THE AGE OF COVID: USING REFUTATION-BASED LEARNING TO ENHANCE VACCINE UPTAKE AND KNOWLEDGE AMONG HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS AND THE PUBLIC

Project description

Vaccinating against misconceptions to protect global public health

Despite the unquestionable success of immunisation in reducing and eliminating infectious diseases, scepticism on information about vaccine efficacy and safety remains a universal menace. According to the World Health Organisation, the diffusion of mistrust is due to misinformation provided by the internet. To address the challenging vaccine hesitancy, the EU-funded JITSUVAX project aims at utilising the very misinformation about vaccinations. By training health care professionals through inoculation and refutational learning and enabling them to communicate more constructively with patients, the project aspires to contribute to the increase of public confidence in immunisation.
