NIH Research Activities Related to I Statements

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) is an independent panel of experts that makes evidence-based recommendations about clinical preventive services such as screenings, counseling, and preventive medications. The USPSTF publishes insufficient evidence (I) statements when it is not possible to make a recommendation about the benefits or harms of a service because the scientific evidence is lacking, of poor quality, or conflicting. I statements represent research gaps that need expanded effort and investment.

Each year, ODP conducts the I Statement Reporting Survey to collect information about current NIH activities that address research needs and gaps in USPSTF I statements. Researchers can use the survey results to:

  • Identify opportunities for investigator-initiated activities to address I statements
  • Explore NIH activity related to addressing the I statements
  • Learn about grants and funding opportunities that address the I statements
