Program Description

A Think Tank initiative was conducted including a select pool of clinicians involved in vaccinations, including infectious disease specialists, primary care physicians, adolescent medicine, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nursing, obstetrics/gynecology, and university student health practitioners.

  • Discuss the prevalence of HPV infection, the types of cancers it causes and the impact of HPV vaccination in the U.S.
  • State the ACIP recommendations for HPV vaccination in children aged 9-14 and persons aged 15-26
  • Identify perceived barriers by both healthcare providers and patients to HPV vaccination
  • Apply strategies to overcome perceived barriers to HPV vaccination in the pediatric, adolescent and/or adult clinic setting
