For the first time, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has released an e-book version of its Guide to Clinical Preventive Services, an authoritative source that can help primary care clinicians and patients decide together what preventive services are right for a patient’s needs. The 2014 Guide includes all active Task Force evidence-based recommendations since 2004, including 28 new and updated recommendations since the 2012 version of the Guide.


The e-book is compatible with many readers, including Kindle, Nook, iBook, and Kobo. As a reminder, in addition to the e-book, you can view and download the Guide online or order a print copy of the guide at the AHRQ Publications Online Store. To place a bulk order, please contact AHRQ by email (ahrqpubs@ahrq.hhs.gov) or phone (toll-free, 800-358-9295).
