Low HPV vaccination rates are leaving another generation of boys and girls vulnerable to devastating HPV cancers. Vaccination could prevent most of these cancers. CDC is looking to you to make a strong recommendation for HPV vaccination when kids are 11 and 12 years old. Provided in this presentation is up-to-date information on HPV infection/disease, HPV vaccine, and ways to successfully communicate with patients and their parents about HPV vaccination. Find out how to tell parents that they aren’t opening the door to sex – they’re closing the door the cancer. Because HPV vaccine IS cancer prevention and YOU are the key.

Use the link above to download the video, transcript, fact sheet and a variety of CDC provider and parent resources related to HPV Immunization. CME Credit is available until February 16, 2016.


HIV/AIDS CME Education Series

As many of you are aware, the DC Department of Health has a new licensing requirement starting in 2014. For the next 4 years, physicians, nurses and physician’s assistants must complete 3 hours of HIV specific CME units. The Children’s National Office of Medical Education and the Medical Staff have collaborated with the Special Immunology Clinic and the Burgess Clinic to create 3.5 hours of training for you.

There is no cost to complete these CMEs and they are available to DC AAP members online at the INOVA CME Portal. Many Children’s National employees are already familiar with this site because it has been used to claim CME credit for attending Hospital Grand Rounds and Professorial Grand Rounds since September, 2014. DC AAP members not employed by Children’s National will need to create a profile in the ICMES system.

Please see instructions for completing the HIV Enduring Materials series. You will be able to complete the training from a desktop computer or from a tablet (Android or iOD) with wifi or data connection.
