The Principles and Practice of Clinical Research Data Management

June 10, 2015 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm


Lynn Simpson, MPH, Research Data & Analytics Services Manager, Enterprise Research Infrastructure & Services (ERIS)

This seminar will present an insight into the key considerations in managing your clinical research data in accordance with Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Guidelines. This course will review data management terminology and the regulations governing GCP. It will provide the conceptual framework for thinking about overall data management processes from study start (case report form and database design) to study maintenance (data cleaning, monitoring, and report generation), so that researchers will be able to obtain the ultimate goal of clean and analyzable data sets. The course will also compare different data capture systems and outline data management priorities for studies with limited resources.

This course is geared towards investigators, research nurses, study coordinators and all other study staff.

This program meets the requirements of the Board of Registration in Nursing, at 244 CMR 5.00, for 1 contact hour of nursing continuing education.
