In this section
The CPG Committee is made up of a broad group of clinicians from General Paediatrics, Emergency Medicine and General Practice, including doctors (consultants and trainees), nurses and allied health practitioners from health services across Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
Development of new and updated CPGs should follow and comply with:
Each CPG author is supported by a supervising consultant from the CPG committee.
A CPG Fellow is also allocated to assist the author and supervisor throughout the process.
CPGs are developed or reviewed by a primary author, usually supported by a supervising consultant from the CPG committee.
This support includes:
CPGs are emailed to the Committee for review 4 weeks prior to Committee meetings. At Committee meetings, the draft CPG is discussed from start to finish, to ensure that the aim/s of the CPG are met and each point of information or advice conveys the appropriate message. This may include edits or suggested changes to language, clinical information, structure or formatting.
A final draft is completed by the original author for either resubmission to the Committee, or submission for final checks by the CPG Development Group prior to publication on the website.
This process was implemented to ensure that all CPGs, particularly those less likely to change significantly over time, are up to date with content and formatting. This review includes a literature review, undertaken by a CPG fellow, with supervision by a CPG consultant. Subspecialists or relevant stakeholders may be contacted during the process for specific questions. Feedback from PIC representatives is also sought to ensure the CPGs remain widely applicable. If significant changes are required the CPG committee will be consulted.
