Protecting our Adolescents: ACIP 2-Dose HPV Vaccination Series 


81% of HPV-associated cancers cases diagnosed each year could be prevented by HPV Vaccination! Despite national guidelines and proven benefits, vaccination rates of the human papillomavirus (HPV) remain far below those of other vaccines recommended for adolescents. Every year that increased coverage is delayed, thousands of unprotected persons can go to develop cancer.

On May 23, High Sierra AHEC, along with partners from Nevada Primary Care Association, American Cancer Society and Northern Nevada HOPES will provide a presentation to Nevada Community Health center clinical staff members to improve adolescent health services. This presentation will provide newly updated ACIP guidelines for the HPV Vaccination 2-Dose Series.

Learning Objectives: 

1. Define the importance of HPV vaccination for cancer prevention and the rationale for vaccination recomendations during health and wellness visits

2. Become familiar with the newly updated ACIP guideline recommendations for HPV vaccinations

3. Provide Useful and compelling information related to HPV and strategies to aid in making the decision to vaccinate

4. Develop strategies to assist in making effective recomendations to increase HPV vaccination rates among adolescent populations 

CE/CME Credits will be available
