NETWORK LAUNCH: International Pediatric Oncology Guidelines in Supportive Care Network (iPOG Network)
We would like to announce the launch of the iPOG Network – a voluntary collaboration of organizations which are developing or endorsing clinical practice guidelines for the supportive care of children with cancer or undergoing bone marrow transplant.
The iPOG Network aims to share best practices among clinicians, coordinate supportive care guideline development efforts internationally and communicate the existing evidence gaps to the research community. The objectives of the iPOG Network are to facilitate the creation of high quality CPGs 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
