J Community Health Nurs; 34(4): 180-189, 2017 Oct-Dec.
Artículo en Inglés | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-29023157
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is associated with various forms of cancer and is preventable with vaccination. Nurses are in a unique position to directly influence a person's decision to receive the HPV vaccine. A statewide sample of both school and public health nurses was used to assess knowledge and attitudes related to the HPV vaccine as well as nurse's behaviors and behavioral intentions toward educating parents and recommending the vaccine. Positive attitudes and adequate knowledge levels were found, however, the majority of school nurses did not provide information and resources to parents. Targeted health promotion programs for school nurses are recommended.
