This is a presentation developed as a decision aid to help consumers understand the recommendation of the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) that women in their 40s should learn about the benefits and harms of mammography and make their own decision, not just routinely get screened.

This decision aid was produced in 2013-2014 under research contract 1IP2PI000633 from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to the University of Massachusetts Medical School by personnel from: The University of Massachusetts Medical School, the University of Massachusetts Boston, and the Central Massachusetts Area Health Education Center.
