Expert Advisory Groups
Expert advisory groups (EAG) provide expert clinical advice to commissioners and others to influence best possible practice across the region.
They are multi-disciplinary forums for site specific cancers or for cross cutting themes; with representation from professionals across the specific cancer care pathway. They involve users in their planning and review.
The EAG act as a group to provide expert clinical advice to commissioners and others to influence best possible practice across the region.
The EAG aims to:
- agree a set of clinical guidelines and patient pathways to support the delivery of high quality equitable services across the region
- use available data to consider where there may be unwarranted variation and recommend corrective action where necessary
- use service evaluations by patients and carers to make improvements
- monitor progress on meeting national cancer standards and ensure improvements are implemented
- review and discuss identified risks/untoward incidents to ensure learning is spread
- agree a common approach to research and service development.
