Governance

ePPOC Governance

The activities of ePPOC in its first year were overseen by a National Reference Group (NRG). The NRG comprised representatives from state, territory and Commonwealth government departments and key stakeholders within the pain management sectors, including the Faculty of Pain Medicine, consumer groups, the Australian Pain Society and Painaustralia.

 After a successful first year under the guidance of the NRG, ePPOC welcomed in a new phase of governance in late 2014 with the establishment of two new committees:

§  Management Advisory Group (MAG)

§  Scientific and Clinical Advisory Committee (SCAC)

The ePPOC Management Advisory Group (MAG)

The Management Advisory Group is responsible for the strategic and executive management of ePPOC. The current MAG membership consists of:

§  Dr Chris Hayes (Chair) – Faculty of Pain Medicine
