The majority of tuberculosis (TB) cases in the United States are attributable to reactivation of latent TB infection (LTBI) (1). LTBI refers to the condition when a person is infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis without signs and symptoms, or radiographic or bacteriologic evidence of TB disease. CDC and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommend screening populations at increased risk for LTBI, including persons who have lived in congregate settings at high risk and persons who were born in, or are former residents of countries with TB incidence ≥20 cases per 100,000 population (2-4)...

OBJECTIVE: To determine if the quality of pre-screening discussions has changed following release of the USPSTF statement against prostate cancer screening. METHODS: This cross-sectional study utilized the 2012 and 2014 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) surveys. Respondents were categorized based on the year in which they responded to the BRFSS Survey. Quality of pre-screening discussion was operationalized as having discussed: only advantages, only disadvantages, both advantages and disadvantages, or neither...

Importance: Modern prevention guidelines substantially increase the number of individuals who are eligible for treatment with statins. Efforts to refine statin eligibility via coronary calcification have been studied in white populations but not, to our knowledge, in large African American populations. Objective: To compare the relative accuracy of US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) and American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) recommendations in identifying African American individuals with subclinical and clinical atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD)...

The 2016 recommendation statement by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) endorsed screening for depression in the general adult population. The recommendation was mainly based on studies that compared enhanced depression care that included depression screening with usual care. In contrast to the USPSTF recommendation, the 2013 guidelines from the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care (CTFPHC) recommended against routine depression screening. The CTFPHC could not identify any studies comparing depression outcomes of usual care with and without the addition of routine depression screening...

INTRODUCTION: Random glucose <200 mg/dL is associated with undiagnosed diabetes but not included in screening guidelines. This study describes a case-finding approach using non-diagnostic random glucose values to identify individuals in need of diabetes testing and compares its performance to current screening guidelines. METHODS: In 2015, cross-sectional data from non-fasting adults without diagnosed diabetes or prediabetes (N=7,161) in the 2007-2012 National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys were analyzed...

Importance: Many conditions that can affect women's health are often evaluated through pelvic examination. Although the pelvic examination is a common part of the physical examination, it is unclear whether performing screening pelvic examinations in asymptomatic women has a significant effect on disease morbidity and mortality. Objective: To issue a new US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendation on screening for gynecologic conditions with pelvic examination for conditions other than cervical cancer, gonorrhea, and chlamydia, for which the USPSTF has already made specific recommendations...

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) summarizes the principles and considerations that guide development of its recommendations for diverse U.S. populations. It uses these principles through each step in the evidence-based guideline process: developing the research plan, conducting the evidence review, developing the recommendation, and communicating to guideline users. Three recent recommendations provide examples of how the USPSTF has used these principles: the 2015 recommendation on screening for abnormal blood glucose and type 2 diabetes; the 2016 recommendation on screening for breast cancer; and the recommendation on screening for prostate cancer, which is currently in progress...

BACKGROUND: Guideline developers and other users of systematic reviews need information about whether a medical or preventive intervention is likely to benefit or harm some patients more (or less) than the average in order to make clinical practice recommendations tailored to these populations. However, guidance is lacking on how to include patient subpopulation considerations into the systematic reviews upon which guidelines are often based. In this article, we describe methods developed to consistently consider the evidence for relevant subpopulations in systematic reviews conducted to support primary care clinical preventive service recommendations made by the U...

Healthy People 2020 (HP2020) includes objectives to increase screening for breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer (1) as recommended by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF).* Progress toward meeting these objectives is monitored by measuring cancer screening test use against national targets using data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) (1). Analysis of 2015 NHIS data indicated that screening test use remains substantially below HP2020 targets for selected cancer screening tests. Although colorectal cancer screening test use increased from 2000 to 2015, no improvements in test use were observed for breast and cervical cancer screening...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: In 2012, the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) issued a grade 'D' recommendation against the use of routine prostate-specific antigen (PSA)-based screening for any men. This recommendation reflects critical misinterpretations of the available evidence base regarding benefits and harms of PSA screening and has influenced the nationwide landscape of prostate cancer screening, diagnosis, and treatment. RECENT FINDINGS: Following the USPSTF recommendation, a substantial decline in PSA screening was noted for all age groups...

BACKGROUND: The way software for electronic health records and laboratory tests ordering systems are designed may influence physicians' prescription. A randomised controlled trial was performed to measure the impact of a diagnostic and laboratory tests ordering system software modification. METHODS: Participants were family physicians working and prescribing diagnostic and laboratory tests. The intervention group had a modified software with a basic shortcut menu changes, where some tests were withdrawn or added, and with the implementation of an evidence-based decision support based on United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendations...

BACKGROUND: In 2009, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommended biennial mammography for women aged 50-74 years and shared decision-making for women aged 40-49 years for breast cancer screening. We evaluated changes in mammography screening interval after the 2009 recommendations. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a prospective cohort study of women aged 40-74 years who received 821,052 screening mammograms between 2006 and 2012 using data from the Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium...

179 Background: Despite widespread advocacy, shared decision making (SDM) is not routinely used in office-based cancer screening discussions. We describe primary care physicians' (PCPs) endorsement of the importance of SDM in different cancer screening contexts. METHODS: Between 3/15-5/15 we administered a mailed survey to PCPs randomly selected from the American Medical Association's Master File. Using 5-point Likert scales, we report PCP's ratings of the importance of SDM for 11 specific screening scenarios graded by the US Preventive Service Task Force (USPSTF), four specific to not screening elderly patients...

225 Background: HIV is a cancer-associated virus classically associated with KS, NHL, and cervical cancer, but more recently with anal cancer, lung, and head and neck cancers. HIV testing and treatment are important for cancer patients for three reasons: 1) HIV treatment is associated with reduced transmission of a cancer-associated virus. 2) HIV treatment is associated with improved outcomes of cancer therapy in many cancers. 3) HIV testing optimizes quality of care, since testing is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF)(A level recommendation) for patients between the ages of 15 and 65 years of age...
