External Advisory Committee

Description

The role of the External Advisory Committee (EAC) is to  provide advice to the Project Management Committee.  This includes  helping to review the content of study materials, planning how the study will be carried out, reviewing the results of the study and how best to disseminate the findings  to a wide audience.

Membership

We think that it is important to ask a range of people with experience, expertise and knowledge of CHD to advise us on our project.  This includes people with personal experience of CHD and also those involved in the delivery of health and social care to individuals and families with CHD.
