Clinical Advisory Group
The Clinical Advisory Group (CAG) is a group of professionals from across the cystic fibrosis (CF) multidisciplinary team that offers advice and guidance to Cystic Fibrosis Trust on clinical matters.
What is the role of CAG?
The three main roles of CAG are to:
- ensure effective communication between the Trust and CF multi-disciplinary teams, people with CF and their families
- advise on Trust publications that contain clinical and medical content, from factsheets to consensus documents, to ensure they are accurate and up to date
- advise the Trust on clinical and medical affairs and programmes of work
Who is in CAG?
CAG is made up of a representative of each discipline on the CF multidisciplinary team to ensure all materials receive essential input from all aspects of the clinical care pathway. These include a clinician, physiotherapist, dietitian, psychologist, pharmacist and others.
