About the iPOG Network

History

Discussion within the paediatric oncology clinical practice guideline community started in the fall of 2013 Representatives of interested organizations held an informal meeting in Toronto in October 2014. The iPOG Network was officially formalized in January 2015.

Objectives

  • Goal: That every child receiving cancer treatment or undergoing bone marrow transplant receives the best known supportive care.
  • Vision: To optimize the quality of life of all children receiving cancer treatment and undergoing bone marrow transplant by accelerating the development and incorporation of evidence regarding the supportive care of these children into international standards of care. The iPOG Network believes that trustworthy clinical practice guidelines are an ideal tool to achieve this vision.
