HPV Provider Training

You are the KEY to Cancer Prevention

Oregon has exceptionally low 3-dose completion HPV vaccination rates leaving another generation of boys and girls vulnerable to developing HPV-related cancers later in life. Even with compelling evidence that HPV causes cancer and that a safe, effective vaccine is available, it can be a challenge to encourage parents to vaccinate their adolescent and to engage staff in the process. Vaccination could prevent most of HPV-related cancers. That’s why it’s so important to have a plan that implements practice changes to increase HPV vaccination coverage.

This training will include up-to-date information on HPV infection/disease, HPV vaccine, and ways to successfully communicate with patients and their parents about HPV vaccination. Find out how to tell parents that they aren’t opening the door to sex—they’re closing the door the cancer. Because HPV vaccine IS cancer prevention and YOU are the key.
