Does your practice use the two-dose human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine? The following
resources will help adhere to this protocol.
Technology. HPV Vaccine: Same Way, Same Day is a brief, interactive role-play simulation that
helps you practice introducing the HPV vaccine and address concerns of parents who
are hesitant about the vaccine. Download the free resource from Google Play (http://bit.ly/2jvjVak) or the Apple App Store (https://apple.co/2IeJYQR).
Partnerships. The link between oropharyngeal cancer and HPV is another reason why patients must
complete the HPV immunization series. Enlist dental professional colleagues in educating
patients with these posters, http://bit.ly/2KC5i1p.
Education. You wouldn’t tell teens to wear a seat belt only when they think they might get into
a car accident, says Linda Fu, M.D., M.S., FAAP. Why wait until a teen is sexually
active to receive the HPV vaccine? A pediatrician panel talks about the HPV vaccine
series in this free continuing medical education video on the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention website, http://bit.ly/2IhmzOO.
