Your Child and the HPV Vaccine:
We have answers for your questions!

 

Program Goals

In 2014, the CDC Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP) issued updated recommendations related to vaccination for Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Although certain HPV types have been implicated in causing cervical cancer in women, persistent infection is also related to anogenital and oropharyngeal cancers in men and women. Therefore, the ACIP recommends routine HPV vaccination at age 11 or 12 years years. Vaccination is also recommended for females aged 13 through 21 years who have not been vaccinated previously or who have not completed the 3-dose series. Males aged 22 through 26 years may be vaccinated.

In addition to the updated vaccination guidelines, the FDA also issued updated regulations for HPV screening in 2014. Because Primary Care Practitioners are generally involved with administration of the HPV vaccination, the implications of the new Cervical Cancer Vaccination Screening Guidelines are multifold, e.g., testing method(s) to employ by age group, screening intervals (based on age and HPV testing result), incorporating office protocols to account for the new guidelines. Further, given the fact that cervical cancer occurs most frequently in women over age 30, the new vaccination and screening guidelines have significant implications for Primary Care Practitioners screening women ages 25 years and older. In this context, Primary Care Practitioners adjusting to the new Guidelines should understand the various testing methods (e.g., HPV DNA testing, Pap) and their associated sensitivities and specificities, how the Guidelines impact in-office protocols as part of a coordinated care model, and how to communicate with patients about testing intervals and HPV status vs. Pap/Cytology status.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for medical professional who have clinical interest in the diagnosis, treatment and ongoing management of HPV and cervical cancer. This includes multi-specialty medical healthcare professionals, physicians, laboratory professionals, nurses, pharmacists and other related clinical practitioners.

Learning Objectives

After completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
1. Discuss the role of HPV in cervical cancer.
2. Describe the current vaccination guidelines for male and female populations.
3. Define the current HPV testing guidelines and recommendations.
