Summary
HPV is complex and difficult to explain to patients.  A rapid increase in HPV-related cancers has led to an urgent need for an intervention to help clinicians communicate with patients about HPV-related cancer. The study builds on the HPV core messages developed through our previous research. It uses a qualitative approach to obtain the views of patients diagnosed with HPV-related cancer about the content, phrasing and contextualisation of draft scripts. This will lead to the development of evidence based cancer site specific versions of a scripted HPV consultation, backed up by take-home messages on paper for patients diagnosed with HPV-related cancer.
