School Nurses’ Role within HPV Vaccine Uptake: A Model for Interprofessional Collaboration
Wednesday, July 25, 3 p.m. ET Register Now

Presented by: Brittany L. Rosen, PhD, CHES, Assistant Professor in Health Promotion and Education at the University of Cincinnati and Kim Toole, Assistant Profession, Family Nurse Practitioner Program Coordinator at Xavier University School of Nursing

This webinar will provide an in-depth review of school nurses’ HPV vaccine knowledge and attitudes, along with their perception of their role as opinion leaders for the HPV vaccine and their professional practice in providing HPV vaccine education and recommendations to parents. In addition, we will identify barriers preventing school nurses from providing HPV vaccine education and recommendations, including time constraints, job requirements, and school policies. Next, we will examine how to address these barriers through implementing a model for inter-professional collaboration offering examples from local (Ohio) school nurses. Last, we will review resources and tool-kits school nurses and partners can use to educate and recommend the HPV vaccine to parents.
