Event description

Description

HPV cancers can be devistating but they are preventable with vaccination, when given at the right time. The CDC is looking to healthcare providers to make a strong recommendation for HPV vaccination when kids are 11 and 12 years old. This presentation provides up-to-date information on HPV infection/disease, HPV vaccine, and ways to successfully communicate with patients and their parents around this sensitive topic. HPV vaccine IS cancer prevention and YOU are the key.

OBJECTIVES: At the conclusion of the 1 hour session, the participant will be able to:
-Define the importance of HPV vaccination for cancer prevention and the rationale for vaccinating at ages 11 or 12.
-List the indications for HPV vaccine for girls and for boys.
-Provide useful and compelling information about HPV vaccine to parents to aid in making the decision to vaccinate.
