Work Groups and Task Forces

A key feature of CMSS programming is the sponsorship of ad hoc task forces and expert work groups. Formed to address specific and usually time-limited issues, these groups develop policy and advise the Council regarding issues confronting the medical profession.

Patient and Family Work Group
This group was created to explore and make recommendations regarding the role of specialty societies in facilitating the engagement of patients and families with physicians and members of the health care team in a patient-centered health care system to improve the health of individuals and populations.
