Lifetime Prevention Schedule

The Lifetime Prevention Schedule (LPS) looks at clinical prevention services for British Columbians. These include screening, behavioral interventions and preventive medications provided by a health-care provider, based on age and sex. The LPS reports show priorities for these services in B.C. based on each service’s clinical effectiveness, population health impact and cost effectiveness.
