      • Marshall County has a population ~31,448. Demographically most residents are Caucasian and of moderate-socio economic status. 27.8% of the population is <24 years old. 11.6% of the population is below the poverty level.
  • 3 Project Goals
      • Increase HPV vaccination rate for Health Department clients
      • Inform and educate incoming 6th grade students parents about HPV vaccine
      • Discuss HPV vaccine as a prevention strategy to 9th grade students
  • 43 people have completed the series
  • 50 new patients have initiated the series. 13 High School aged, 29 6th grade aged and 8 >18 years
  • ~400 9th grade students were reached during the ‘Reducing the Risk’ Classes
  • ~350 incoming 6th grade students received HPV vaccine information
  • Initial Data Retrieval for baseline
  • Mail/Telephone Outreach
    • Incorrect number
    • Incorrect addresses
    • Disconnected numbers
    • No return call when message left
  • Vaccine questionnaire
    • Voluntary response
    • Lack of incentive to client
  • Demographic
      • Some have moved
      • Receive services elsewhere
lesson learned best practices
Lesson Learned/Best Practices
  • Be very specific in data requests for initial baseline
  • Incomplete contact data for patients – address, phone
  • Rate of voluntary survey completion is not high
  • Not able to capture entire county’s HPV vaccination data
evaluation measureable outcomes
Evaluation/Measureable Outcomes
  • Able to calculate a new completion rate
  • Can draw a loose connection among the ages of those initiating the vaccine and outreach efforts of the Health Department
  • If the return rate of completed surveys was higher, future outreach efforts could be guided by the response from those surveys
  • Next Steps
    • Health Department personnel will come together to discuss what, if any, components of this project will be continued
      • Could continue to follow-up with persons who have started the series…
      • Continue outreach efforts in the schools – same as this year or change the approach
      • Come up with other ways to inform citizens regarding HPV
