Maine Update on HPV Vaccinations
Jessica Reed, MSN, GNP-BC
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 to 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.
This webinar is presented by the American Nurses Association of Maine and Maine AHEC Network at the University of New England.
