Utilizing a Collaborative Approach to Create Efficiencies With CDISC - CDASH Standards, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 10, 2015) - Industry experts Jonathan Zimmerman, Senior Clinical Data Manager at FMD K&L, and Yuguang Zhao, Vice President of Statistical Programming at FMD K&L will present a bird's eye view highlighting a Phase I study with mid-level complexities. This presentation will showcase lessons learned from experience and illustrate how building the database structure utilizing CDASH standards minimizes the gap with SDTM format.

Data accuracy is paramount to the success of a clinical trial, so why risk any inefficiencies? In this fast paced industry, where experts are constantly working to get drugs approved faster to improve the lives of patients, they sometimes forget to take a step back and analyze lessons learned to better improve their data standardization approaches.

Utilizing their own experience, as well as lessons learned from other colleagues, Jonathan and Yuguang will share their recommended approach based on best practices to create efficiencies between the Data Management and Stats / Programming teams. They will outline ways to better understand the methodology from both team perspectives to achieve the goal of building a database for efficient data entry as seamlessly and error free as possible.

The key learning objectives for this webinar are to:

  • Understand the benefits of collaborating between Data Management and Stats / Programming teams to improve efficiencies.
  • Identify common pitfalls with data standards and discuss ways to improve them.
  • Learn why implementing a streamlined approach can create more efficiencies overall and how this can be substantiated.

The live one-hour broadcast takes place on Thursday, November 19, 2015 at 11am EST (4pm GMT). For more information or to register for this complimentary event, visit: Utilizing a Collaborative Approach to Create Efficiencies with CDISC - CDASH Standards
