Abstract:
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is the leading cause of cervical cancer, raising concerns about transmission, sexual practices, and age of sexual activity. The recent availability of papillomavirus recombinant vaccine (Gardasil) should have a significant impact with a potential for reducing the incidence of this malignancy by well over 90 percent. To educate nurses about the pathophysiology of HPV leading to cervical cancer and new clinical strategies to prevent this malignancy A group of gynecologic oncology nurses planned and presented a Nursing Grand Rounds program, which was accredited for continuing education credit, on HPV and Cervical Cancer for nurses at a major medical center. The program presented evidence-based information on the human papilloma virus (types 6, 11, 16, and 18), short term consequences such as genital and buccal lesions, long term consequences such as cervical cancer and head and neck cancers, prevention of infection, and the projected impact of the papillomavirus recombinant vaccine. Presenters also discussed how to educate parents about having their puberty-aged daughters vaccinated as well as discussing concerns about past exposure with patients in active treatment for cervical cancer. Twenty-four nurses attended the program, and the evaluation forms were overwhelmingly positive. Given that nurses in general are often in a position to discuss health promotion with their patients, they should be knowledgeable about the risks of cervical cancer related to sexual practices and the availability of a preventative vaccine. This presentation was recorded and will be available for viewing on DVD for the next year, so that nurses on off shifts or otherwise unable to attend the original presentation can benefit from the information and receive continuing education credit.
