Nominate a Recommendation Statement Topic

Anyone can nominate a new topic or an update to an existing topic at any time on this site. The Task Force prioritizes topics based on several criteria, including:

  • the topic’s relevance to prevention and primary care,
  • importance for public health,
  • potential impact of the recommendation, and
  • whether there is new evidence that may change a current recommendation.

To nominate a topic, visit the Nominate a Recommendation Statement Topic page.
