INTRODUCTION

Why study this program?


Introduction

Clinical data management or CDM is one of the corner stones in medical drug and device development. Most organizations involved in conducting clinical trials have dedicated data management departments to help with the collection, verification, and validation of clinical trial data. The aim is to make sure that the data that is collected by conducting clinical trials is accurate and free of errors so that a correct analysis of the data can be performed to draw the right conclusions. Data management professionals help to develop the case report forms, put in place a data management plan, create various databases to enter the collected data, create queries in the system in case of inconsistent or incorrect data, and provide the statistical analysis team with a data management report.

Different organizations use different tools to manage clinical trial data however the most common tool is the Oracle Clinical software. Other less common tools are Medidata Rave, Open Clinica, Inform etc.


This online clinical data management program will introduce you to all key concepts of clinical data management and give you a broad understanding of the role played by data management departments.
