The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recently released its updated 2012 Guide to Clinical Preventive Services—an authoritative source that can help primary care clinicians and patients decide together what preventive services are right for a patient's needs. This edition of the guide includes the USPSTF’s evidence-based recommendations on clinical preventive services from 2002 through March 2012, topics in development, and at-a-glance clinical summary tables.
Go to USPSTF's A-Z Topic Guide to access recommendation statements on interventions to prevent low back pain, falls in older adults, and osteoporosis. USPSTF also makes recommendations on screening for and management of obesity in adults and children.
The 2012 guide can be found on the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's website.
