Description:
Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States, as well as a cause of various types of cancer. An estimated 79 million people in the United States are infected with some type of HPV, and approximately 50% of new infections occur in individuals before the age of 24. Despite the availability of safe and effective vaccines, HPV vaccination coverage remains low. There are various reasons why the vaccination rates are low, including patients’ and/or parents' lack of knowledge about HPV and their discomfort with talking to health care providers about sexual activity, affordability, among other reasons.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Review the prevalence of HPV infection, the types of cancers it causes and the impact of HPV vaccination in the United States

  • Analyze prevention strategies that reflect recent clinical advances in HPV vaccination and clinical practice guidelines

  • Outline the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations for HPV vaccination

  • Assess the latest evidence regarding the increasing burden of HPV-related, non-cervical cancers and implications for at-risk patients, especially males

  • Examine the evolving role of HPV vaccinations in adults
