Core group

The IGHG is directed by a multidisciplinary core group of eleven representatives from the North American Children’s Oncology Group (COG), the Dutch Childhood Oncology Group (DCOG), the United Kingdom Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG), and the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN). The guidelines are developed in collaboration with the PanCareSurFup Consortium.

This core group included healthcare professionals, content experts, researchers and methodologists with skills in evidence appraisal and synthesis, who held leadership positions in the development of their national/cooperative group guidelines.

Expert panels

For each guideline topic, 20 to 30 individuals with expertise pertinent to the specific topic are invited by the core group to participate in the harmonization expert panel.

The expert members represent all relevant disciplines, ranging from pediatric and radiation oncologists and survivorship care providers to guideline methodologists and epidemiologists.

Patient representatives are also invited to participate in the process.
