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.
HPV: You Are The Key - Dr. Michelle Berlin
