Project Evaluation

Project Evaluation

State AHEC

One AHEC entity per state and the District of Columbia will be selected to carry out state and local HPV project training activities. Four larger states – Texas, Florida, California and New York - will have two AHEC awards each. Each state AHEC entity will work closely with HPV Regional Coordinators to develop and maintain contact with immunization organizations, as well as provide continuing education on HPV immunization to primary care providers and distribute promotional messages.

HPV Project Evaluation Training (recorded 8/11/15)

The National AHEC Organization created a National Training Center (NTC) that received a 5-year cooperative agreement grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) beginning September 30, 2014, to develop and provide Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)-related training sessions to clinicians nationally. In addition to national and regional level efforts, existing state and local Area Health Education Center (AHEC) organizations will conduct the HPV outreach and education activities in order to increase awareness of the prevalence of HPV infections, associated cancers, and the CDC recommendations to administer the HPV vaccinations to 11 and 12 year old males and females as well as “catch-up” vaccinations for adolescents and young adults.

The primary purpose of the FY 2015 evaluation is to document the activities related to National AHEC Organization HPV Immunization Project during FY 2015 and disseminate the results and accomplishments. The evaluation results will be used to provide continuous project quality improvement by assessing the progress toward, and effectiveness of, the strategies and activities conducted during the first grant year by NAO, the regional coordinators and state AHEC entities.

The NAO project proposes to increase HPV vaccination rates by delivering primary care clinician training programs and by disseminating education materials on a national scale utilizing the national Area Health Education Center Network. The strategies for the NAO project in FY 2015 are:

  • Strategy 1. General project organization, management and oversight
  • Strategy 2. Conduct direct clinician outreach and training programs
  • Strategy 3. Disseminate educational materials to clinicians
  • Strategy 4. Form strong partnerships focused on increasing HPV vaccination rates
  • Strategy 5. Push prioritization of HPV vaccination efforts

HPV Training Objectives

  1. Describe the burden of HPV disease.
  2. Define the importance of HPV vaccination for cancer prevention.
  3. Explain the rationale for vaccinating youth at ages 11 or 12.
  4. List the recommendations for administering the HPV vaccine to girls and to boys.
  5. Provide useful and compelling information about HPV vaccine to parents to aid in making the decision to vaccinate.
  6. Locate resources relevant to current immunization practice.
