Training Overview Description

Low HPV vaccination rates are leaving boys and girls vulnerable to devastating HPV cancers. Have you been making an effective HPV vaccination recommendation for kids 11 and 12 years old? This presentation will provide up-to-date information on HPV infection/disease, the HPV vaccine, ACIP recommendations, and ways to successfully communicate with patients and their parents about HPV vaccination.

Find out how to reduce missed opportunities by recommending HPV vaccine the same way and same day you recommend other routinely recommended adolescent vaccines. Learn best practices from other medical offices across the nation that are making HPV vaccination a priority.
