Clinical Advisory Group

The PICANet Clinical Advisory Group (CAG) provides a formal interface between PICANet and clinical care teams. The Advisory Group is a forum in which organisations can raise practical issues with regard to the operation of PICANet, and contribute to discussions around the long term development of its content and the results obtained from analysis of the database.
