Foundational Standards

CDISC Foundational Standards provide the basis for the complete CDISC suite of standards, supporting the clinical research process from protocol through data collection, data management, data analysis and reporting. These standards focus on the core principles for defining research data standards, and generally represent interest areas that are common across all research studies such as demographics, medical history, medication history and concomitant medications, adverse events and other common domains. These CDISC Foundational standards can be freely accessed by the global research community by clicking the appropriate blue button in the top section of the diagram above.
