Slide 22. USPSTF and Clinical Decision-Making
USPSTF and Clinical Decision-Making
- The recommendations made by the USPSTF are intended for use in primary care settings.
- The USPSTF realizes clinical decision-making with patients involves more complex considerations than the evidence alone.
- It is important that clinicians understand the evidence, but also that decision-making be tailored to the specific patient and situation.
- The "Clinical Considerations" section of each USPSTF Recommendation Statement offers information to be used by clinicians as they put the recommendations into practice with individual patients.
