Increasing HPV vaccination coverage among pediatric, adolescent, and young adult (PAYA) cancer survivors: A multilevel intervention


The purpose of this research is to test the efficacy of different interventions to increase vaccination against human papillomavirus (HPV). Survivors of childhood, adolescent and young adult cancers are at increased risk of developing HPV-associated secondary cancers, but have lower HPV vaccination coverage compared to the general population. Interventions which are found to be successful in this study will be incorporated into future survivorship care to improve adherence to recommend preventive healthcare practices. All research procedures will be conducted remotely (e.g. online).
