Standing Orders to Improve HPV Vaccination

Dates: 9/1/2022 - 8/31/2027


Role: Natalie Leblanc, PhD, MPH, RN, BSN : Co-Investigator
Principal Investigator: Rand, C.

Aim 1) Apply mixed methods (in-depth interviews and practice surveys) to identify provider- and practice-level barriers and facilitators to implementing SOs for adolescent HPV vaccination. Aim 2) Using a 2-arm cluster randomized trial (n=40 practices), we will assess the effectiveness of standing orders (SO) + HPV communication education (intervention arm) relative to HPV communication education alone (control arm) on HPV vaccination for 11-17 year-olds. A secondary aim is to measure the implementation of SOs using semi-structured interviews and surveys. Aim 3) Measure costs and cost-effectiveness (cost per additional HPV vaccine) of the interventions.
