This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||adolescent hpv vaccine, adolescent influenza vaccine|
|Treatment||4 pillars toolkit|
|Sponsor||University of Pittsburgh|
|Start date||September 2013|
|End date||May 2016|
|Trial size||21 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02165722, PRO13070205|
The purpose of this study is to test whether or not the 4 Pillars Immunization Toolkit increases adolescent vaccination rates, particularly influenza and human papillomavirus (HPV) but also tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap), and meningococcal conjugate (MCV) vaccination rates. The vaccines are all FDA licensed vaccines and to be used according to national guidelines. The investigators will conduct a randomized cluster trial of this toolkit in diverse primary care practices with electronic medical records (EMRs).
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
Adolescent vaccination rates for HPV and Influenza
time frame: Baseline year (for background data): June 1, 2013 thru February 28, 2014. Year 1: June 1, 2014 thru February 28, 2015. Year 2: June 1, 2015 thru February 28, 2016.
Male or female participants from 11 years up to 17 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - For clinical sites: inclusion criterion includes 1. an appropriate adolescent population: e.g., adolescents aged 11 to 17 years 2. currently using an EMR 3. having and keeping immunization data within a EMR or registry. Exclusion Criteria: - For clinical sites: the exclusion criteria is consistent SOP use for the vaccines being studied or known much higher than average immunization rates.
