Topic: HPV vaccination

In this study, the research team is comparing three ways to increase the number of youth who get the HPV vaccine. One way is to send reminders to parents to have their child vaccinated. Another way is for clinics to provide specialized training for clinicians, such as doctors and nurses, and staff to make sure that the vaccine is offered to all eligible youth. The third way is to both send parent reminders and provide training for clinicians and health clinic staff.
