Routinely Recommending Cancer Prevention: HPV Vaccination at 11 and 12 as a Standard of Care
At a Glance
CDC recommends HPV vaccine for adolescents at 11-12 years of age. Physicians discuss how they ensure they meet the standard of care by making effective HPV vaccine recommendations and answering parents’ top vaccine questions in this web-on-demand video released on January 16, 2018. Continuing education is available until January 16, 2020.
Description: Although HPV vaccination rates are rising, there are still too many unvaccinated boys and girls left vulnerable to devastating HPV cancers later in life. Vaccination could prevent most of these cancers. CDC needs health care professionals to make effective HPV vaccine recommendations at 11 and 12 years old. In this presentation, you’ll learn how clinicians can and have been successful making HPV vaccine recommendations. In addition, they discuss how they effectively answer parents’ questions and communicate HPV vaccination information to parents and patients. These clinicians are successfully talking about HPV vaccine, and thus, reducing missed opportunities to protect patients against HPV.
