Volunteers wanted for new Working Group project

 The Optimizing the Use of Data Standards Working Group has a new project entitled "Data Standards for Observational Studies". With no strict standards and guidelines currently in place, this project group plans to study the challenges that programmers face during creation of the analysis datasets and handling of the data for observational studies. This will involve networking with programmers, summarising the issues they face then looking to optimise the ways they can be resolved from both programming and data handling perspectives. Data transparency will be taken into account when discussing dataset creation and the group is keen to have input from CDISC experts. The results of the project will be presented in the form of a White Paper. 

If you are interested in becoming part of the project, please contact Wendy Dobson wendy@phuse.eu. Further details are available on the Call for Project Volunteers & Suggestions page.
