The Guide to Clinical Preventive Services includes U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendations on screening, counseling, and preventive medication topics and includes clinical recommendations for each topic. This new pocket guide provides family physicians, internists, pediatricians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other clinicians with an authoritative source for making decisions about preventive services.
The clinical summaries in this Guide are abridged versions of recommendations from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF). To view the full recommendation statements, supporting evidence, or recommendations published after March 2014, go to http://www.USPreventiveServicesTaskForce.org
Each of the abridged clinical summaries include the following criteria:
· Risk Assessment
· Screening Tests
· Balance of Benefits and Harms
· Other Relevant USPSTF Recommendations
