Abstract:
Cervical cancer is the 11th most common cancer among women in the United States. The American Cancer Society estimated that in 2005 there were 10,370 new cases of cervical cancer diagnosed in the United States and 3,710 women died from the disease. Vaccines for this disease are now available. The distribution and administration of this vaccine before sexual activity occurs will prevent thousands of infections and deaths. All health care providers, policy makers, the public, patients, and the press should be involved in the dissemination of this information. The goal of this program was to educate the staff of a hospital responsible for the education and care of children and their parents in an effort to raise awareness and discussion of the HPV vaccine and itsÆ implications. Location: Patient Care Services Education Grand Rounds - ChildrenÆs Hospital, Columbus, Ohio. The use of Grand Rounds for this program was initiated by the Director of Patient Care Services Education. The audience consisted of health care providers for various disciplines. The presentation team consisted of four members of the National Black Nurses Association and six members of the Oncology Nursing Society. Three members of the team serve with both organizations. Following a PowerPoint presentation a written evaluation was provided to the participants. The three objectives identified were described as met by all participants completing the form. Participants were able to discuss signs, symptoms, risk factors for cervical cancer; identify role of HPV in cervical cancer and to identify available vaccines. An important question on the evaluation asked whether the educational activity influenced your attitude - all participants gave an affirmative answer. Supportive literature was provided by Merck and Company, Inc., the American Cancer Society, ETR Associates and the National Cancer Institute This program resulted in increased knowledge on the part of the oncology nurses presenting the program as they learned the protocol for vaccine use at the hospital. The hospital staff received valuable information regarding provision of medical care and vaccination for uninsured along with available resources. This program would be applicable as a professional presentation to any audience involved in the health of children as well as cancer prevention.
