Presentation Materials

The following Community Guide-approved slides provide accurate information to help you to help you learn, teach and disseminate:

  • What the Community Guide is
  • How Community Guide scientists and the Community Preventive Services Task Force, in collaboration with their partners, develop evidence-based recommendations and findings to improve public health
  • Task Force recommendations and findings on specific topics

Community Guide Overview Slides

The following two sets of slides can be used together or with any of the topic-specific slides, depending on the focus of your presentation. Feel free to mix slides from different sets to accommodate presentation length, learning objectives and audience needs. We recommend, however, that you:

The Community Guide: A Brief Overview [PDF - 244 kB] – These slides describe the purpose of the Community Guide, its relationship to the Task Force, how it identifies evidence-based interventions and the expert team involved in doing so.

The Community Guide: Using Systematic Reviews to Inform Task Force Recommendations [PDF - 800 kB] – This set of slides is designed for those interested in the scientific methods used for Community Guide systematic reviews. The slides describe how Community Guide systematic reviews are conducted and used by the Task Force, as well as how Task Force findings and recommendations are disseminated for use.

Topic-Specific Slides

The following slides summarize the Task Force recommendations and findings on specific Community Guide topics.
