Notice to Readers: Webcast on Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)

CDC will present a webcast, "HPV and Cervical Cancer: An Update on Prevention Strategies," on August 9, 2005, 1:00--2:00 p.m. EDT. Genital HPV infection is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases. New information is available about the natural history of HPV infection, the association of different HPV types with various clinical manifestations, HPV transmission, and methods of HPV prevention. In addition, the Food and Drug Administration recently approved the use of a commercially available HPV DNA test for two purposes: 1) management of patients with abnormal Pap test results and 2) as an adjunct to the Pap test for cervical cancer screening in women aged >30 years. This new information about HPV might require changes in approaches to cervical cancer screening in primary-care practices and in counseling and educating patients and their sex partners. The webcast will address cervical cancer screening guidelines and strategies for preventing genital HPV infection, including appropriate patient counseling messages.

Information about content, registration, continuing education credit, and accessing the webcast is available at http://www.phppo.cdc.gov/phtn/hpv-05. Information about registration is also available from CDC, telephone 800-418-7246 or 404-639-1292.
