Programming a CDASH-Compliant eCRF Library with Biostatistics

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials,
  • Tuesday, May 07, 2019

Since clinical trial data vary on many parameters (participant demographics, study procedures, method of data collection, etc.), case report forms should be developed according to an accepted standard. The Clinical Data Acquisition Standards Harmonization (CDASH) outlines best practices for presenting data to maintain consistency and quality across different trial phases and therapeutic areas. The use of CDASH also provides significant cost and time saving benefits to organizations conducting clinical trials.

In this webinar, three experts in clinical data programming will elaborate on these benefits, complete with demonstrations of how to build and use a CDASH-compliant library. Among other things, participants will learn how new standards in data entry processes make it easier for stats programmers to analyze data.
