  • Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia. The etiology is unknown and there is no known cure for this devastating progressive neurodegenerative disease. The hippocampus is affected and prevents the patient from forming new memories. The patient often recognizes it but doesn’t want to talk about the “hippo” in the room. With more than 6 million American’s living with Alzheimer’s disease and a projected doubling of that number, nurse practitioners should be knowledgeable about the disease.

  • Primary prevention by immunization is the most effective means of reducing the burden of disease caused by pathogens such as human papillomavirus (HPV) and Streptococcus pneumoniae. HPV is a common sexually transmitted infection that can cause genital warts and cancers of the cervix, oropharynx, anus, vagina, and vulva. Pneumococcal disease (PD) spreads via respiratory secretions and can lead to sinusitis, otitis media, pneumonia, meningitis, and bacteremia. PD poses a significant burden on vulnerable patient populations such as young children and older adults, those with chronic conditions, and those who are immunocompromised. Highly effective and safe vaccines are available to prevent HPV infection and its sequalae as well as pneumococcal disease. Despite the proven benefits of available vaccines, immunization rates remain suboptimal, and vaccine hesitancy has been on the rise. Patient counseling and education is key to identifying high-risk patients and providing them with reliable information on available vaccines as well as where and how to get them. In this CE activity, expert faculty investigate the prevalence and burden of HPV infection and PD; discuss the safety, efficacy, and Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) guidelines for available vaccines; and assess strategies and interprofessional approaches to increase vaccine confidence in patients eligible for these immunizations.
