The Lifetime Prevention Schedule (LPS) Expert Committee has completed the 2018/19 annual assessment of the clinical prevention maneuvers for inclusion into the LPS.

In 2018/19, the Committee assessed three additional clinical prevention services using LPS criteria: clinical effectiveness, population health impact, and cost effectiveness. The services assessed in 2018/19 were screenings for: major depressive disorder among adolescents (12-18 years of age), osteoporosis among women (65 years of age and older), and abdominal aortic aneurysms among men (65-75 years of age, who have ever smoked).

Full details on the modelling of the new services and results of the assessment can be found in the latest technical report hosted here.
