About the iPOG Network

History

Discussion within the pediatric 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 formalized in January 2015.

Objectives

The objectives of the iPOG Network are to improve the quality of life of children with cancer or undergoing bone marrow transplant by facilitating the creation of high quality clinical practice guidelines relevant to the supportive care of children with cancer by:

  •  sharing best practices in CPG development
  •  avoiding inadvertent duplication of effort by sharing guideline work plans and endorsement processes
  •  communicating evidence gaps to the research community and
  •  providing a forum for discussions regarding guideline dissemination and implementation

Current members

All who are developing or endorsing supportive care clinical practice guidelines in pediatric oncology are welcome. Please contact Lee Dupuis to indicate your interest in the iPOG Network.

The iPOG Network currently includes representatives from:

         

 

Meetings

  • Representatives of member institutions meet by teleconference monthly.  An annual face-to-face meeting is planned.

Funding

  • Funding to support the work of the iPOG Network is generously provided by the SickKids’ Garron Family Cancer Centre.  The activities of the iPOG Network are not directed or influenced by the funding agency.
