Final Published Deliverables

PHUSE convened a group of experts from across industry to address the particular challenges Clinical Data Scientists may face in their work. This group has published a White Paper which offers perspectives from industry experts on what Clinical Data Scientists can expect in studies in COVID-19 and strategies to address some of the challenges they may encounter. This group has also published a series of blogs providing timely advice as well as an additional White Paper that considers the impacts of COVID-19 on the collection and analysis of clinical trial data.

The PHUSE Best Practices for Data Collection Instructions project team conducted a survey to evaluate the different industry approaches for collecting adverse event data and how those data are evaluated for treatment emergence. The survey was conducted in conjunction with the Analysis and Display White Papers project team, this White Paper presents the findings of the survey.

The Standard Analyses and Code Sharing Working Group has published a 'General Output Tips and Considerations' White Paper. The intent of the paper is to act as a guide to accompany other papers describing different types of analyses. Click here to read. 

The SDTM ADaM Implementation FAQ project has published responses to questions submitted on Data Submissions.
