CDISC Standards from the Start


CDISC Standards from the Start is a 1.5-day non-technical course designed to introduce the purpose and value of standardizing data throughout the lifecycle of clinical research programs, and in registries and other types of data repositories. The course focuses on the value of using data standards, what the individual CDISC standards “look like” and how the standards are designed to bridge data across the research process.

This hands-on course uses an interactive lecture format, practical exercises and realistic examples to guide the attendee through the CDISC standards from beginning to end.  Throughout the course, attendees will experience the purpose and value of each one of the CDISC standards, which will guide them to understand how the standards work together to improve the research process.

Upon completion of the course, attendees will appreciate the benefits of implementing CDISC standards early in their research studies.  These benefits include gaining efficiencies of time and resources, enhancing the ability to pool data across studies, learning more from both successful and failed studies, and leveraging the power of software to improve the research process.

CDISC Standards from the Start is designed for an academic research audience; it is also useful for anyone working in regulated or non-regulated research who desires a non-technical introduction to the CDISC standards, including:
