Abstract

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is known to cause over 31,000 new cancer cases each year as reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2016). It is the goal of health care workers to promote the vaccination rates against HPV using evidence-based practices to increase the protection from its harmful effects. Polk County Public Health Department set a reproductive health goal to increase the HPV vaccination rate by ten percent. Interventions were developed to address current barriers that were assessed through collaboration with the reproductive health staff and analysis of clinic visits, staff interviews, program review, and databank searches. Interventions developed to overcome barriers include therapeutic communication tools, updates to questions/conversations regarding HPV, a vaccination financial assistance program, and documentation needed to expand the role of the medical assistant at the public health clinic. Implementing these interventions has potential to increase protection from HPV.
