CDISC Standards: What Clinical Data Managers Need to Know





This webinar will provide an overview of the CDISC standards, where they fit into the overall biomedical research data flow, and why it is important for clinical data managers to be aware of them.

Then we will dive a little deeper into how the implementation of CDISC standards affects the processes of clinical data management, with a few things to consider about cross-functional planning and communication.

This webinar will help prepare attendees to have a cross-functional discussion about how implementing the CDISC standards will affect their processes.  Attendees will also come away from the webinar with specific things they can do to make the hand-offs and transformation steps in their data flow more effective.
