USPSTF Releases Fourth Annual Report to Congress on High-Priority Evidence Gaps for Clinical Preventive Services

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF or Task Force) has released its “Fourth Annual Report to Congress on High-Priority Evidence Gaps for Clinical Preventive Services.”

In 2014, the USPSTF continued to fulfill its mission of improving the health of all Americans by making evidence-based recommendations about clinical preventive services such as screening tests, counseling about healthy behaviors, and preventive medications. These recommendations help primary care clinicians and patients to decide together whether a preventive service is right for each patient’s needs.

In this report, the USPSTF has prioritized evidence gaps related to the care of children and adolescents. More research in these areas would result in important new knowledge that may improve the health and health care of young Americans, with lasting benefits through adulthood.
