HPV | For Awardees and State Programs Partners | CDC

HPV | For Awardees and State Programs Partners | CDC


January is Cervical Awareness Month

We have an amazing tool to protect young people from most of the cancers caused by HPV, including cervical cancer. Let’s use the rest of January to raise awareness of all HPV cancers and HPV vaccination. 
CDC and several partner organizations have compiled a multitude of resources for the new
HPV Vaccination Partner Toolkit that can help you share the importance of HPV vaccination, help clinicians make effective recommendations, improve coverage rates, and provide you with places you can go to get more information and materials. Below are ways you can raise awareness this month and in the future.

Share Why HPV Vaccine is Important

     1.  Have Survivors Come to Speak
     Having a survivor come speak to clinicians in the area can
     make a big impact. The American Cancer Society has
     developed a speaker database that will allow you to find 
     HPV cancer survivors in your area.

     2. Share Survivor Videos
     HPV cancer survivors have a unique and powerful story to tell. 
     Listen to these men and women talk about their experiences 
     important. These videos can be used to help parents and 
     clinicians understand  the risks of HPV infection and why HPV
     vaccination is so important.

     3. Set up a viewing of Someone You Love
     “Someone You Love: The HPV Epidemic” is a feature length 
     in-depth documentary narrated by Vanessa Williams on the 
     human papilloma virus (HPV) and the stories of 
     struggle, tragedy and triumph surrounding this complicated 
     and often misunderstood infection.

     4. Discover the Link Between HPV and Cancer
     Each year, about 38,793 new cases of cancer are found in 
     parts of the body where human papillomavirus (HPV) is often  
     found. HPV causes about 30,700 of these cancers. Get the 
     statistics around HPV and Cancer from CDC to better 
     understand the burden of HPV infection.

Help Clinicians Make Effective Recommendations

     1. Share the Updated Clinician Factsheet
     Our updated clinician tipsheet highlights the use of the 
     "bundled recommendation" and gives simple and effective 
     answers to the questions parents have about HPV vaccine.

     2. Learn How to Give an Effective Recommendation     CDC has created multiple CME courses on the best ways to 
     give an HPV vaccine recommendation. Each course can be 
     used to get new insight on how to have the HPV vaccine 
     conversation with parents of 11-12 year olds and how to 
     answer their questions.

      3. Watch Providers Giving Effective Recommendations      Minnesota Department of Health has created a 12-minute 
      video for health care providers on HPV vaccine   
      communication. The video begins with humorous vignettes 
      and then presents four model clinical encounters in which 
      providers demonstrate low-stress ways of recommending 
      HPV vaccine and answering questions from patients and 

Help Raise HPV Vaccination Rates

what do
     1.  Know the Many Ways You Can Help     Get tips on what different types of groups can do to help 
     raise rates. This PDF includes suggestions like: sending
     letters to parents of 9-12 year olds, hosting lunch and learns,    
     working with local cancer groups, reaching out to local 
     health systems, and more.

     2.  Understand your Rates     Access survey data collected by CDC and translate the data 
     into action. This data can help you identify where additional 
     efforts are needed to increase vaccination coverage.

     3.  Get Involved in Quality Improvement Projects     Quality improvement actions in your practice can lead to 
     increases in HPV vaccination coverage. Find out more about 
     the different types of quality improvement projects that are 
     available, including AFIX visits, reminder/recall, immunization 
     information systems, and more.

     4.  Participate in A Maintenance of Certification Project     Be a part of AAP's maintenance of certification program. 
     AAP's MOC site is designed to assist eligible AAP Member
