The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) is an independent panel of national experts in disease prevention and evidence-based medicine that develops recommendations for the delivery of clinical preventive services including screening tests, preventive medications, and behavioral counseling.1 To develop recommendations, the USPSTF evaluates the quantity, quality, and strength of evidence from systematic reviews of published studies.2
