ESC Committees

Committee for Practice Guidelines (CPG)

The Committee for Practice Guidelines or CPG (previously known as the Committee for Guidelines and Policy Conferences - CPGPC) was established by the Board of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) at its second meeting in October 1994. It considers innovative roles for the involvement of the ESC in the new health-related policies and in clinical practice, prevention, quality assurance, research programmes and health economics in cardiovascular diseases.

The committee is composed of members who are elected for a period of 2 years.
