J-16-02 Boosting HPV Vaccination Rates: A Call to Action

1 CE, 1 Rx (NCC Code 2A)

Intended Audience:

This continuing education (CE) activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of women’s health nurse practitioners (NPs), adult NPs, family NPs, and certified nurse midwives (CNMs) involved in women’s health.

• CE Approval Period:Now through May 31, 2017
 Estimated Time to Complete This Activity: 1 hour
 CE Approval Hours: 1.0 Contact Hour of CE Credit, including 1.0 Contact Hour of Pharmacology

Goal Statement:
NPs and other advanced practice clinicians who care for women will make a strong recommendation that children aged 11 or 12 get fully immunized against HPV so as to prevent HPV-related diseases in the future.

Needs Assessment: 
Most cervical cancers are preventable. The incidence of cancer due to HPV infection has declined significantly since the inauguration of screening programs in the U.S more than 50 years ago. However, too many women are still developing cervical cancer, and 4,400 are dying of it each year. More cases of cervical cancer could be prevented with increased uptake of HPV vaccination and improved access to cervical cancer screening in under-screened and unscreened populations.
