dc.description.abstract"The Canadian Task Force on the Periodic Health Examination (later renamed The Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care) published its first set of recommendations almost exactly 24 years ago, in November 1979.1 But it seems that the era of the Task Force is over: as of April 30, 2004, the Task Force will lose its Health Canada funding (see page 1202). The initial report covered 78 target conditions, the scope of its recommendations ranging from prenatal toxoplasma serology to breast cancer screening in women aged 50–59 to annual assessments of progressive incapacity in elderly patients. The Task Force exerted a salutary influence not only by carefully assessing health check-ups and preventive services but also by establishing standards of evidence. Its systematic classification of research into levels of evidence (I, II, III) and grades of recommendation (A through E) is an innovation that persists to this day. Also important was the identification of gaps in research. In its first report, the Task Force identified 21 priorities for investigation, thus pointing granting agencies and researchers toward areas that urgently needed study."
