Call for Volunteers: Knowledge Repository

Being a Statistical Programmer in the Pharmaceutical Industry is more than just knowing how to write programming code. Besides strong technical skills, such a role requires comprehensive understanding of the clinical development process, underlying regulations, industry standards and medical knowledge.

This Knowledge Repository aims to serve as a quick reference guide. This will be achieved by identifying and referring to already existing material, which will be organised in a user-friendly structure. The project will look to split into 8 different sub-groups: 

* Drug Development Process 
* Clinical Study Design and Conduct 
* Clinical Study Workflow 
* Clinical Documents 
* Regulatory Environment 
* Programming 
* Data Standards 
* Therapeutic Areas 

Team meeting frequency across the sub-groups will be no more than 1 hour fortnightly, and no less than 1 hour monthly 

Project members will be required to research and curate materials already published 

Meeting agendas and minutes will be stored in the projects Teamwork area (access to project members only) 

The Knowledge Repository section of the Education website will be maintained by admin volunteers and the Co-Leads. Any content for the website can be prepared by any member of the project and uploaded to our project space on Teamwork for review, before uploading to the Education Website by the admins and Co-Leads.
