The Canadian Guide to Clinical Preventive Health Care is a comprehensive reference guide on preventive health measures from the world-renowned Canadian Task Force on the Periodic Health Examination. By using a consistent system of evidence-based analysis, the guide evaluates whether or not medical conditions are preventable. These recommendations help physicians choose proven screening tests, provide guidance on which patients to test (and when) and distinguish appropriate tests from those that are unnecessary.

Topics covered include:
  • Prenatal and perinatal preventive care
  • Pediatric issues
  • Immunization of children and adults
  • Preventive dental care
  • Screening for vision and hearing disorders
  • Cancer
  • Mental health
  • Circulatory disorders
  • Nutritional disorders
  • Women’s health
  • Conditions affecting the elderly
These recommendations are invaluable for physicians in primary care, undergraduate and postgraduate students in health professions, epidemiologists, health policy planners and those in the public health sector. A quick reference wall chart is included with the guide.

The Canadian Medical Association maintains a database for Clinical Resources. For more information about the Canadian Medical Association, visit their website at www.cma.ca.
