Data Validation

May 16, 2012: 11.00am EDT, 17.00 CET, 20.30 IST

1 part webinar
60-minute presentation followed by 30-minute Q&A

Clinical trial data must be of sufficient quality to evaluate study objectives. Data validation is the quality control process that ensures data is of sufficient quality and minimizes the risk of invalid or missing data at the time of analysis. Properly managed, data validation eliminates costly re-evaluation of data late in the clinical trial process. This webinar will define high quality data and discuss the data validation processes that produce high quality data. Data validation for both paper and EDC systems will be considered. Data validation will be examined at multiple stages from the edit checks embedded in the EDC system to the preparation of datasets for analysis. Specific examples of the data validation will be provided for each stage of the clinical data management process.
