Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care

    Patient Preferences, Usability Testing, Annual Evaluation


    • 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.
    • The Task Force is an independent body of 15 primary care and prevention experts from across Canada who recognize and support the need for evidence-informed preventive activities in primary care. It consists of family physicians, mental health experts, pediatricians, other physician specialists, experts on prevention, and more.
    • Collaborate with stakeholders to determine the best way to disseminate and implement the guidelines and accompanying tools within budgetary and feasibility constraints.
    • Develop tailored messages and tools for clinicians and patients aligned with guideline recommendations, using current “best practice” methods.
    • Use an iterative process of heuristics and usability testing to refine the tools for the relevant audience.
    • Review and incorporate emerging best practices for knowledge translation over time.
    • Evaluate guideline implementation as opportunities arise to further the uptake of the guidelines into primary care practice.
    • Participate in the Topic Prioritization and Methods Working Groups to provide input on knowledge translation issues. This input ensures that knowledge translation is considered in all aspects of guideline development.
