The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) is inviting public comment on its draft recommendation statement on screening for cervical cancer, and holding a briefing via conference call on the same topic.

The draft recommendation statement on screening for cervical cancer is an update of the 2003 USPSTF recommendation. To provide comments, please go to http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Name/us-preventive-services-task-force-opportunities-for-public-comment. The opportunity to comment on this draft recommendation statement will be available until November 16. The evidence report was published in the October 18 issue of Annals of Internal Medicine and is available on the USPSTF Web site at http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Document/EvidenceReportFinal/v2-cervical-cancer-screening-2012.

Task Force members will also hold a briefing via conference call on its draft recommendation on screening for cervical cancer on Friday, October 21 from 12:00 to 1:00 pm, ET. During this briefing, they will provide an overview of the USPSTF, summarize the systematic review of the evidence, and walk through the draft recommendation statement.
