WPSI Launches "Guidance You Can Trust" Campaign

Jan 28, 2021 | Hitomi Abe

Women’s Preventive Health Services Initiative (WPSI), an effort led by American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has recently launched a new campaign, Guidance You Can Trust. The goal of the campaign is to equip clinicians who care for women throughout their lives with the necessary resources to meet their patients’ preventive health needs including the WPSI recommendations and Well-Woman Chart.

Nearly half of all women in the U.S. do not receive the life-saving preventive care they need, and WPSI knows that many types of clinicians play a role in providing preventive services to women. Their multidisciplinary team of experts develop cutting-edge, evidence-based recommendations to support all clinicians who care for women. WPSI’s sole focus is on women, so they address pressing and often overlooked issues to fill the critical gaps in women’s preventive services recommendations. WPSI is committed to prioritizing women’s preventive health and continues to work towards keeping all women healthy.

WPSI has developed 12 preventive services recommendations for patients across the lifespan, including a recommendation on screening for anxiety that enables women to receive the service with no cost-sharing as of January 2021. Details including clinical practice considerations, risk assessment methods, and the age and frequency for delivering services are described in the clinical summary tables that accompany the well-woman chart. The clinical summary tables and well-woman chart are available on the WPSI website for free.

The recommendations are not intended as a statement of the standard of care and do not comprise all proper treatments or methods of care. Health care professionals should use clinical judgment in applying these recommendations to individual patient care and consider the needs and resources particular to the locality, the institution, or the type of practice. The well-woman chart is updated annually.
