HPV vaccination is cancer prevention. While most U.S. adolescents are starting the HPV vaccine series, less than half have finished the HPV vaccine series. Every year that adolescents aren’t vaccinated is another year they are left unprotected against cancer-causing infections. A clinician recommendation plays a critical role in getting parents to accept HPV vaccination for their child.

CDC is looking to you to make an effective recommendation for HPV vaccination for all your 11-12 year old patients. This presentation is intended to support you in making effective recommendations and answering parents’ questions.  Provided in this presentation is up-to-date information on HPV infection/disease, HPV vaccine, and ways to successfully communicate with parents about HPV vaccination.

At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to:

  1. Define the importance of HPV vaccination for cancer prevention and the rationale for vaccinating at ages 11 or 12.
  2. Describe the indications for HPV vaccine for girls and for boys.
  3. List two components of an effective HPV vaccine recommendation.
  4. Identify relevant and compelling information to share with parents about HPV vaccine to help inform their decision to get HPV vaccine for their child.
  5. Implement disease detection and prevention health care services (e.g., smoking cessation, weight reduction, diabetes screening, blood pressure screening, immunization services) to prevent health problems and maintain health.
