Description:

Having public members on a Trial or Study Steering Committee (TSC/SSC) is required by the NIHR and can be hugely beneficial, as they can provide a unique “critical friend” stakeholder perspective usually with lived experience of the area of research.

This co-produced guidance is for use by researchers, public members and TSC/SSC chairs and members. It provides definitions of research oversight groups including TSC/SSCs, describes the public member role and expectations and outlines good practice for recruitment and involvement of public members on TSC/SSCs.
