Abstract In June 2005, the Select Panel on Preconception Care established implementation workgroups in 5 areas (clinical, public health, consumer, policy and finance, and research and surveillance) to develop strategies for the implementation of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations on preconception health and healthcare. In June 2006, members of the clinical workgroup asked the following questions: what are the clinical components of preconception care? What is the evidence for inclusion of each component in clinical activities? What health promotion package should be delivered as part of preconception care? Over the next 2 years, the 29 members of the clinical workgroup and > 30 expert consultants reviewed in depth > 80 topics that make up the content of the articles that are contained in this supplement. Topics were selected on the basis of the effect of preconception care on the health of the mother and/or infant, prevalence, and detectability. For each topic, the workgroup assigned a score for the strength of the evidence that supported its inclusion in preconception care and assigned a strength of the recommendation. This article summarizes the methods that were used to select and review each topic and provides a summary table of the recommendations. This article was published in Am J Obstet Gynecol and referenced in Journal of Pregnancy and Child Health
