The PMC Steering Committee has been formed to address issues that span all selected pragmatic trials. The Steering Committee provides input in the creation of policies and processes for the PMC, assisting in the dissemination of policies and processes that enable research in VA and DoD health care systems.

Dr. Kerns will serve as Chair of the Steering Committee with Drs. Peduzzi and Brandt available to act as Chair on an as needed basis. Additional membership includes the demonstration project Principal Investigators, their respective Program Officer and Project Scientist, one Co-Chair from each of the Work Groups, and Program Coordinators from the relevant NIH, DoD, and VA programs in addition to other representatives from these agencies as appropriate. The Steering Committee holds a monthly teleconference, and plans two face-to-face meetings during the first year of the Collaboratory, with plans for once yearly meetings thereafter.
