Facing the future with HPV vaccine

Medscape (reg. req.) has a new CME module posted about the new vaccine for human papilloma virus: "Facing the Future: The Impact of HPV Vaccination on Adolescent Health." The module includes slides and talk transcripts of discussions of clinical data and social/economic implementation issues. So far, I've only reviewed the third one: "Acceptance and Implementation of HPV Vaccines," by Amy Rosenthal. Rosenthal spends quite a bit of time looking at parental concerns and how to deal with them. Her target audience is, of course, physicians, maybe nurses, but her insights will be useful for advocates as well.
