CDISC -CDASH: The next generation



The CDISC CDASH data capture standard was initially released in 2008, and was updated in 2010.  This year, a number of different releases are happening.  The CDASH standard version 2.0 will be released, the new CDASH Model version 1.0 will be launched, and the User Guide and related Controlled Terminology will be updated.  

This webinar will discuss what CDISC is, the role of the CDASH products within CDISC’s portfolio of standards, the content of each CDASH product, and how they interrelate.  We’ll provide an illustration of how to use the CDASH products to model existing data, and show how to use CDASH products and other CDISC standards to develop conformant data capture objects for customized data.  We will also discuss the three General Observation Classes from SDTM, how they impact CDASH, and why those using CDASH must be familiar with them.  Finally, we’ll look at a few examples of CRFs that are CDASH conformant but may look very different from the CDASH definitions and even more so from the SDTM structures.  


Learning Objectives

Identify and define the CDASH family of products

Reference the SDTM standards to ensure CDASH data conformity 

Model existing and simple new data for capture using the CDASH products

Participants will better understand the role of CDISC standards in the data capture process, and will have an initial foundation for using CDASH in their studies. 


Who Should Attend:

Beginning, intermediate and advanced data managers and associated programmers will find useful material in this webinar.
