Addressing Evidence Gaps in Clinical Prevention


Project Scope:

An ad hoc committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will be convened to examine current issues in identifying and filling evidence gaps in U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) clinical prevention recommendations.  As part of its work the committee will:

  • Catalog the evidence gaps identified in USPSTF recommendations.
  • Develop a taxonomy of evidence gaps.
  • Develop a summary of types of USPSTF evidence gaps to better communicate these gaps to funders and researchers.
  • Identify potential research strategies that could help close specific types of identified evidence gaps.
  • Suggest ways in which the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) can enhance their partnership to optimize program announcements and requests for applications to accelerate research to close evidence gaps.

The committee will make recommendations as appropriate.
