The Community Guide An Overview of Changes Made to The Guide to Community Preventive Services What Is
The Community
Guide? Who Makes the Recommendations? The Guide to Community Preventive Services ("The Community Guide") is a free resource to help agencies choose effective policies and programs to prevent disease in their communities. The Community Guide provides resources for multiple diseases, including cancer, HIV/AIDS and STIs, as well as for health-related topics (such as adolescent health). The Community Guide provides recommendations for breast, cervical and colorectal cancers. Recommendations are made by the Community Preventive Services Task Force, an independent non-federal group. This group conducts systemic reviews on interventions related to health topics, which provide the basis for the defined recommendations. What Do the Recommendations
Look Like? The Task Force specifically looks at interventions that have been published between 1966 and 2004. Recent Changes Made Recommendations are made in the form of: Insufficient does not mean ineffective!

Often times The Task Force will not recommend an intervention if there is not enough evidence (or not enough studies completed) to determine whether it is effective or not. This does not mean the intervention is not effective, there is just not
enough information to deem it effective. The new commendations cover 9 screening interventions
within 2 strategic areas: Group education to increase breast cancer screening is now recommended (previously had insufficient evidence) One-on-one education for
colorectal screenings is now
(previously insufficient evidence) Client reminders to increase colorectal screenings is now recommended
(previously recommended based on sufficient evidence, now recommended based on strong evidence) An updated review of small media interventions is currently underway and is not included in the recommendations. Recommended: Strong Evidence Recommended: Sufficient Evidence Not Recommended: Insufficient Evidence Client-Oriented
Interventions Provider-Oriented
Interventions Previously, 10 interventions were recommended within 3 priority areas: Increasing Community Demand for Screening Services Increasing Community Access to Screening Services Increasing Screening Service Delivery By Healthcare Providers Examples of Interventions http://www.thecommunityguide.org/index.html
