Release of USPSTF Final Recommendation on Screening for Cervical Cancer
Friday, March 16, 2012
Today, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force posted its final recommendation statement on screening for cervical cancer.
The USPSTF is working to make its recommendations clearer and more useful. One of the ways we are doing this is providing an opportunity for public comment on draft recommendation statements. The draft recommendation statement for screening for cervical cancer was posted online for public comment from October 19 to November 30, 2011, with a Task Force public briefing on October 21. Since that time, we have reviewed the comments and are issuing our final recommendation statement. To view the final recommendation statement and the evidence reports, click here.
