Title of Collaborative Activity:

Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF)

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) is an independent, non-federal panel of prevention experts that uses information from rigorously conducted systematic evidence reviews to make public health recommendations for preventive services that are delivered in community settings. These recommendations are intended to inform public health decision-making about policy, practice, and research priorities for community preventive services. Recommendations from the CPSTF are published in The Guide to Community Preventive Services. The Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) represents NIH as an official liaison member and works with the CDC and CPSTF members to ensure that recommendations represent the views, concerns, and needs of the NIH and our constituents. ODP staff also serve on, or recommend NIH scientists to serve on systematic evidence review teams, and help translate CPSTF recommendations and insufficient evidence findings into actions.
