NP Tools and Resources

AANP-developed resources to support NPs in treating your patients.


Patient Education Tools and Resources

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Handout

This two-page handout provides a summary of HPV and HPV-related cancers for patients to educate them about who should receive the HPV vaccination and when. It also offers a list of sources for reliable vaccination information. This handout can be printed and placed in waiting and exam rooms or provided to patients so that they, and parents of adolescent patients, will be encouraged to discuss HPV prevention with their health care provider.

This handout was made possible by an educational grant from Merck & Co.

Menopause Tool

Women experience perimenopause and menopause in a wide variety of ways. Yet, NPs who may be the best positioned to help prepare women for this transition and provide timely treatment may not recognize the burden of systemic and genitourinary symptoms or how they affect their patient’s quality-of-life. In addition, NPs must be able to adapt to the patient’s evolving needs and to consider how health disparities may impact women differently across racial and ethnic backgrounds.

This resource is supported by an independent educational grant from Pfizer as part of the program, “The Impact of Racial and Ethnic Disparities: Menopausal Women and the NP Role”.
