The Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care was established by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) to develop clinical practice guidelines that support primary care providers in delivering preventive health care. Guideline development is based on systematic analysis of scientific evidence with input from patients and the public, health care practitioners, knowledgeable specialists, health professional associations, health charities, academic institutions and guideline producers in other countries. The Task Force was created to bring together experts with the skills and knowledge to evaluate evidence on complex preventive health care strategies. It is an independent, objective, arms-length panel of experts without ties to industry or government. The Task Force creates national preventive health care guidelines, based on the latest evidence and with input from a range of experts and key stakeholders including patients and members of the public. Task force recommendations have been recognized nationally and internationally for their rigor and usability with wide adoption in primary care.
