Harmonization of SEND Implementation to Enable Historical Control Data Analysis

The scope of this project is to evaluate and recommend approaches for SEND harmonization to better enable analysis of historical control data. SEND harmonization strategies include creation of new variables, controlled terminology, preferred terms, reference lists and/or analysis strategies (scripts) to enable cross study analysis. Developing a solution framework for variability that includes representation of stakeholders involved in the creation and use of SEND datasets will enable more efficient routine analysis of warehoused SEND data.

Final Published Deliverables

The Data De-Identification Toolkit project has published a White Paper which draws a detailed dataset(s) anonymisation process map. The paper identifies challenges and potential pitfalls of the process, suggest best practices and offers automation ideas and examples. Click here to download. 

The Global View of the Clinical Transparency Landscape Best Practices Guide builds upon the “Clinical Trial Transparency and Disclosure: A Global View” White Paper listed below. In this Best Practices Guide, subject matter experts share recommendations with the aim of fostering a holistic approach to clinical data transparency and disclosure that provides accurate and complete information across multiple disclosure platforms. 

The Clinical Trial Transparency and Disclosure: A Global View White Paper was developed by industry experts with the goal of highlighting the evolving global landscape of clinical trial transparency and disclosure, with special focus on individual study and submission-related requirements.
