Physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other interprofessional healthcare team providers are missing opportunities to recommend and vaccinate adolescents with HPV vaccine. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends that all boys and girls receive the HPV at age 11 or 12 when the immune response to the vaccine is optimal. This activity provides compelling stories of several individuals fighting cervical cancer. Expert physicians from around the world provide the scientific and medical background related to the disease process and prevention provided by the HPV vaccine. The Indiana Immunization Coalition’s HPV Provider Resource Tool Kit will be provided along with the film. The tool kit provides best practices information related to the scope of the problem (low HPV vaccination rates), the burden of disease associated with the HPV virus, the importance of recommending the vaccine alongside the other adolescent vaccines, strategies for discussing HPV and the vaccine with patients, and resources that providers can use to educate parents about HPV and the vaccine.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify the link between HPV and cancers in males and females.
- Recognize the HPV vaccine as safe, effective and ideally administered to boys and girls around age 11 to prevent cancers.
- Explain the physical and emotional toll that cervical cancer has on its victims and families.
