Description

The Guide to Clinical Preventive Services 2012 includes new or updated recommendations on 64 clinical preventive services released from 2002-2012 in a brief, easy-to-understand format meant for use at the point of patient care. It includes recommendations on screening, counseling, and preventive medication topics, and includes clinical considerations for each topic. This new pocket guide is an authoritative source for making decisions about preventive services.

Since 1998, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has convened the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF)—an independent panel of non-Federal experts in prevention and primary care. Since its inception, the USPSTF has made and maintained recommendations on more than 100 clinical preventive services that are intended to prevent or reduce the risk for heart disease, cancer, infectious diseases, and other conditions and events that impact the health of children, adolescents, adults, and pregnant women.
