Needs Statement

Providers need to understand the disease burden of HPV in men and women so they will be motivated to protect their patients with vaccination. Providers need to know how to word a strong recommendation, and frame the HPV vaccine as cancer-preventing and part of routine adolescent vaccination schedule. This video is designed to be part of the AAP HPV Champion toolkit, which gives providers tools to improve HPV vaccination rates, including effective patient communication strategies to improve the uptake/completion of HPV vaccination series by patients.

Target Audience

Physicians, PAs and advance practice nurses in pediatrics, family medicine, and OBGYN.

Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

1) Describe what is known about HPV disease prevalence

4) Implement an evidence-based strategy to increase HPV vaccination
