This webinar will provide an in-depth review of school nurses' HPV vaccine knowledge and attitudes, along with their perception of their role as opinion leaders for the HPV vaccine and their professional practice in providing HPV vaccine education and recommendations to parents. In addition, we will identify barriers preventing school nurses from providing HPV vaccine education and recommendations, including time constraints, job requirements, and school policies. Next, we will examine how to address these barriers through implementing a model for interprofessional collaboration offering examples from local (Ohio) school nurses. Last, we will review resources and toolkits, school nurses and partners can use to educate and recommend the HPV vaccine to parents.
