The APPCOG Advisory Board and Working Groups

Associate Members sit on the APPCOG Advisory Board, engaging with Parliamentarians and offering their perspectives on CO policy. They also send representatives to our Stakeholder Forum and Communications group, and can read minutes of the COMed and CO+ Science and Technology Working Groups.

Our Working Groups meet three times a year and bring together a variety of experts to inform the Advisory Board and coordinate work across the CO community:

  • Stakeholder Forum: The APPCOG's largest Working Group, a space for sharing best practice and learning amongst the group's 40+ organisations.
  • COMed: A hub for medical and healthcare professionals working on CO issues.
  • CO+ Science and Technology: A hub for academics and professionals concerned with research and technology affecting CO safety.
  • Communications: A hub for communications and campaigns professionals working on raising CO awareness.
