Recommendations made by the USPSTF are independent of the U.S. government. They should
not be construed as an official position of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality or the
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The final Research Plan is used to guide a systematic review of the evidence by researchers at an
Evidence-based Practice Center. The resulting Evidence Review will form the basis of the USPSTF
Recommendation Statement on this topic.
The draft Research Plan was available for comment from May 26 until June 22, 2016 at 8:00 p.m., ET.
