This seminar is based on the current state of regulations and will cover the essential parts of the data management plan, study startup, study conduct, study closeout and study monitoring.
A data management plan or DMP is a formal document that outlines how data are to be handled both during a research project, and after the project is completed. The goal of a data management plan is to consider the many aspects of data management, metadata generation, data preservation, and analysis before the project begins; this ensures that data are well-managed in the present, and prepared for preservation in the future.
Attendees will be able to:
Define best practices as they apply to CDM processes
Describe CDM processes from study start-up to database lock
Apply best practice rationale when assessing data collection requirements/instruments
Evaluate the benefits of standardization in establishing CDM processes
Discuss current technology/methods of data collection and associated documentation
