PURPOSE: To identify predictors of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination among rural African American families.

DESIGN: Cross-sectional descriptive study in schools in three rural counties in southeastern United States. The sample consisted of African American parents or caregivers with children 9 to 13 years of age who attended elementary or middle school in 2010-2011.

An Opportunity for Cancer Prevention During Preadolescence and Adolescence: Stopping HPV Related Cancer through HPV Vaccination

OBJECTIVE: We conducted a descriptive study of the correlates of refusal and acceptance of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination by rural parents of preadolescent and adolescent children. We hypothesized that the correlates of parents who allow their children aged 9 to 13 years to get the HPV vaccine and those of parents who do not allow vaccination would differ significantly.

Parental Attitudes Towards Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccination of Boys: Quantitative and Qualitative Results to Guide Development of Effective HPV Vaccine Interventions

Incidences of both human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and HPV-related cancers are on the rise in men. However, vaccine uptake is low. Parental consent is required prior to receiving the HPV vaccine. This study examined parental perceptions of the HPV vaccine for boys through survey methods (N = 422) and focus groups (N = 45).

An Opportunity for Cancer Prevention During Preadolescence and Adolescence: Stopping Human Papillomavirus (HPV)-Related Cancer Through HPV Vaccination

Objective We conducted a descriptive study of the correlates of refusal and acceptance of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination by rural parents of preadolescent and adolescent children. We hypothesized that the correlates of parents who allow their children aged 9 to 13 years to get the HPV vaccine and those of parents who do not allow vaccination would differ significantly.

Parental Human Papillomavirus Vaccine Survey (PHPVS): Nurse-Led Instrument Development and Psychometric Testing for Use in Research and Primary Care Screening

The purpose of this article is to describe the development and results of the psychometric evaluation of the Parental HPV Survey (PHPVS). The PHPVS was developed in 2007 in response to the debut of the HPV vaccine and the controversy that followed. During the spring of 2007, nurses and other health care providers discussed with policy makers and public health officials which parents would or would not vaccinate their child or adolescent with the HPV vaccine. The PHPVS was developed and then psychometrically tested so researchers would have an instrument to use in health promotion research.
