HPV vaccine: The voices of young people with learning disabilities 

In 2015, Napier University asked young people about their experiences with the HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) vaccine. They conducted three focus groups with 18 young men with a learning disability.
 
Now they are holding an interactive and accessible event bringing together people who were involved in the first study, members of the public, and professionals. 
 
Topics will include: how to engage young people in the HPV vaccination programme; how to raise awareness of HPV and the HPV vaccination across Scotland; and training/education issues for staff and communities.
 
The event is on Tuesday 11th October, 10:30am-12:30pm at  Edinburgh Napier University, Sighthill Campus, Block D, Level 5.
