The 12-month intervention consists of six to eight sessions of approximately 60 minutes held about every 4 to 6 weeks. For the first 6 months, the transition period, an HPV physician-educator and administrative personnel meet with medical providers at their practice to educate them on HPV morbidity and mortality, vaccine safety, vaccine efficacy, and motivational interviewing techniques they can use when talking with parents who are hesitant about getting their child vaccinated. These sessions aim to establish a relationship of trust between the physician-educator and providers, convey the importance of HPV vaccination, create discussion around HPV vaccination, and help the providers better communicate with parents about the vaccine. For the next 6 months, the active period, the physician-educator gives the providers individualized feedback on their patient vaccination rates, as well as at the practice, state, and national level, so the providers can compare the vaccination rates of their patients with those of other providers. Each participant receives individual reports that show his or her patients HPV rates by gender, age, and number of doses given. Using these data, providers may revise their practices clinical action plans and make other practice-wide changes to increase HPV vaccination rates (e.g., making a strong recommendation to all 11-year-old patients, placing posters about the vaccination in exam rooms, using enhanced reminder and recall methods), and they receive feedback on their behaviors after implementation of their action plans.
Following the implementation plan outlined in this manual, providers can submit this project with confidence for approval for MOC Part IV credit through the ABP or the ABFM application system. These credits help fulfill board certification requirements for pediatrics.

Patients enrolled in the study were males (7,332) and females (5,786) aged 1121 who were current primary care patients at one of the studys practices. Patients were excluded from the study if they had not had one or more well visits over the past 2 years, had already completed the HPV vaccine series, were pregnant during the study period, or had received care at both an intervention and control practice.
Of the 13,118 total eligible patients seen during the study periods (2,344 males and 1,749 females in the intervention group and 4,988 males and 4,037 females in the control group), 92% were from racial and ethnic minority populations, 39% did not speak English as their primary language, and 56% had Medicaid insurance.
The studys primary outcomes were initiation of HPV vaccination (receipt of dose 1 only) and receipt of the next needed dose of HPV vaccination (dose 1, 2, or 3). The vaccination rates of presenting patients at intervention and control practices were compared at baseline (the 6-month period before the intervention), during the 6-month transition period, during the 6-month active period, and for 6 months after the intervention, with males and females analyzed separately. Outcomes were measured by review of electronic medical records. Patients who had previously initiated the HPV vaccination were excluded from the analysis of vaccine initiation but were included in the analysis of receipt of next needed dose.
- Both males and females in intervention practices were more likely than those in control practices to receive an initiation dose during the active period (p<.01 for both analyses), and males in intervention practices were more likely than their control group peers to receive the initiation dose during the transition and post-intervention period (p<.01 for both analyses).
- Males in intervention practices were more likely than those in control group practices to receive the next needed dose during the transition period (p<.01). Both males and females in the intervention practices were more likely than their control group peers to receive the next needed dose during the active period and post-intervention period (p<.01 for males at both time points, p<.05 for females at both time points).
- Multiple factors were associated with receiving the initiation dose and/or next needed dose. For males, these factors were having subsidized insurance (initiation only); being Hispanic or Asian (next dose only); and being older than 15 years, receiving other vaccines, having a history of a sexually transmitted infection, and having more clinic visits. For females, these factors were being less than 15 years and having subsidized insurance (initiation only); being Asian (next dose only); and being Hispanic, having a primary language other than English, receiving other vaccines, and having more clinic visits.
