The APPM Executive
The executive team and our subgroups leads is formed of elected APPM members who serve an initial three-year term which can be repeated for a second term. Each sitting member has a specific role with two non-elected roles: chair of CSAC and Together for short lives representative.
The membership of the executive aims to represent the broadest spectrum of doctors engaging in the field of Paediatric Palliative Medicine from paediatric trainees, hospice GP and specialist paediatricians, or those with an interest. The team is always looking for enthusiastic new members to either join the executive team or various task and finish groups. New executive members are appointed through a vote at the annual AGM (usually held on the APPM study day) or through the year as necessary.
