Background: Little is known about physicians' human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine recommendations for males while the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices' (ACIP) permissive guidelines for male vaccination were in effect. The purpose of this study was to examine and explore factors associated with U.S. physicians' HPV vaccine recommendations to early (ages 11–12), middle (13–17), and late adolescent/young adult (18–26) males. Methods: Nationally representative samples of family… Expand
Missing the Target for Routine Human Papillomavirus Vaccination: Consistent and Strong Physician Recommendations Are Lacking for 11- to 12-Year-Old Males
TLDR
This study is one of the first studies to examine both consistency and strength of physicians' HPV vaccine recommendations for males, and can inform future interventions focused on facilitating physicians' recommendations. Expand
Quality of Physician Communication about Human Papillomavirus Vaccine: Findings from a National Survey
TLDR
Many physicians in the authors' national sample reported recommending HPV vaccine inconsistently, behind schedule, or without urgency, which likely contribute to under-immunization among adolescents, and may convey ambivalence to parents. Expand
Non-preventive care: Challenges and opportunities for adolescent HPV vaccination
TLDR
Developing talking points for questions that may be asked during a non preventive care visit such as whether it is safe to vaccinate when an adolescent is ill may help physicians craft targeted recommendations and responses specific to problem visits. Expand
Predictors of provider recommendation for HPV vaccine among young adult men and women: findings from a cross-sectional survey
TLDR
Predictors of participant-reported physician recommendation for HPV vaccine among young adults in the USA suggest that physician recommendation practices for HPV vaccination vary by characteristics of the patient. Expand
Importance of a team approach to recommending the human papillomavirus vaccination
TLDR
Findings suggest that a coordinated team approach to recommendations may encourage HPV vaccination, and nurse practitioners are well positioned to facilitate coordination efforts within their clinical practices. Expand
Human papillomavirus vaccine initiation among 9–13-year-olds in the United States
TLDR
Females were more likely than males to have initiated HPV vaccination by the age of 13 but not by younger ages, and strength of health provider recommendation regarding HPV vaccination was a particularly salient predictor of vaccine initiation. Expand
Florida physicians' reported use of AFIX-based strategies for human papillomavirus vaccination.
TLDR
Future interventions to increase AFIX engagement should focus on implementing and evaluating AFIX activities in groups identified as having low engagement in AFix activities. Expand
A model of health care provider decision making about HPV vaccination in adolescent males.
TLDR
Interventions designed to improve male HPV vaccination should focus on helping providers to routinely recommend the vaccine to all of their eligible patients, both males and females. Expand
Development and validation of 'educational pamphlet' in prevention of human papilloma virus (HPV) infection among age eligible adults for HPV vaccination in kedah state, Malaysia
TLDR
There exists a relationship between knowledge and HPV vaccine uptake, and several studies suggest that greater HPV knowledge is associated with both greater HPV vaccine acceptability and uptake. Expand
Perception, Awareness, and Acceptance of Human Papillomavirus Disease and Vaccine Among Parents of Boys Aged 9 to 18 Years
TLDR
There was no difference between PPOP and PHCP who would vaccinate their sons with HPV vaccine, and for both groups, health care provider recommendation was the primary influence for vaccination. Expand

Physicians' human papillomavirus vaccine recommendations, 2009 and 2011.
TLDR
Results suggest a modest increase in recommendations for HPV vaccination of girls aged 11 or 12 years over a 2-year period; however, recommendations remain suboptimal for all age groups despite national recommendations for universal immunization. Expand
Human papillomavirus vaccination of males: attitudes and perceptions of physicians who vaccinate females.
TLDR
A gender-neutral HPV vaccination recommendation would be appropriate with regard to public health and believed that it would increase opportunities for sexual health discussions, but were less sure that such a recommendation would change patient or parental attitudes toward HPV vaccination or improve current HPV vaccination efforts. Expand
Missed clinical opportunities: provider recommendations for HPV vaccination for 11-12 year old girls are limited.
TLDR
Findings suggest missed clinical opportunities for HPV vaccination, and perceived barriers to vaccination may drive decisions about recommendation, and the need for age and specialty targeted practice and policy level interventions to increase HPV vaccination among US females. Expand

TLDR
Vaccination initiatives directed toward pediatricians that focus on modifiable predictors of intention to vaccinate, such as HPV knowledge and attitudes about vaccination, may facilitate adherence to emerging national immunization guidelines. Expand
A National Survey of Pediatrician Knowledge and Attitudes Regarding Human Papillomavirus Vaccination
TLDR
Although a national sample of pediatricians expressed a high level of acceptance of human papillomavirus vaccination in older adolescent females, fewer than one half anticipated giving the vaccine to younger female patients, suggesting provider concerns about parental vaccine acceptance will need to be addressed. Expand
Attitudes about human papillomavirus vaccine among family physicians.
TLDR
Female gender, knowledge about HPV, and attitudes about vaccination were independently associated with family physicians' intention to recommend HPV vaccines. Expand
HPV vaccination of boys in primary care practices.
TLDR
Although most physicians support HPV4 for boys, physician education and evidence-based tools are needed to improve implementation of a vaccination program for males in primary care settings. Expand
Human papillomavirus vaccination recommendation may be linked to reimbursement: a survey of Virginia family practitioners and gynecologists.
TLDR
Gynecologists are providing HPV vaccination at rates similar to family practitioners, and reimbursement concerns may negatively have an impact on doctors' recommendation of the HPV vaccine. Expand
Factors influencing pediatricians' intention to recommend human papillomavirus vaccines.
TLDR
The range of pediatricians' attitudes about human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines are described and factors influencing their intention to recommend HPV vaccines are explored to guide the design of interventions to maximize vaccine recommendations. Expand
Health care provider recommendation, human papillomavirus vaccination, and race/ethnicity in the US National Immunization Survey.
TLDR
Provider recommendations were strongly associated with HPV vaccination, and racial/ethnic minorities and non-Hispanic Whites were equally likely to obtain an HPV vaccine after receiving a recommendation. Expand
