US Preventive Services Task Force

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has funded Evidence-based Practice Centers since 1997 to provide systematic evidence reviews for the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF). The USPSTF is an independent task force that issues recommendations for a variety of screening and preventive interventions. EPC reviews are used to inform the USPSTF Recommendations.
