The second case in this 3-case series introduces us to Michael—a hypothetical 15-year-old patient—and his father, who brings his son in for a sick visit and doesn’t want to be bothered with taking the time to have his child vaccinated.
The faculty discuss and illustrate optimal—and not so optimal—ways to address such concerns in the context of the mid-adolescent vaccine visit.
Pediatricians, Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, other healthcare providers involved in the preventive care of adolescent patients
After taking part in this educational activity, participants should be better able to:
- Recognize how all adolescent health care visits should be regarded as a vaccination opportunity
- Offer adolescent patients guidance about sexual health, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and other health-risk behaviors
- Describe data regarding HPV-related disease and prevention among males
