Best Practice Network: How to Structure Your Data Collection - 10/6/2021

Started Oct 6, 2021


Full course description

LIVE SESSION: Wednesday, October 6, 2021 @9:00am - 10:00am, Zoom

REd Best Practice Networks are 1 hour in length with a 15-minute presentation and a 45-minute discussion that are led by subject matter experts. Participants are expected to come prepared with any questions that they may have and to engage in a conversation with the facilitator and their peers.

Class Description: 

Part 1: How to identify data elements and best practices for data collection from a statistician's perspective. Prior to planning data collection, it is helpful for researchers to perform a literature review, including a review of published tables and figures. This information can be used to guide the construction of a statistical analysis plan that includes mock-up tables and figures. After focusing on which data elements to collect, I'll discuss best practices for data collection.

Part 2: Writing a grant Research Design section through the eyes of a Study Coordinator. Most Clinical Research data collection tasks are delegated by the Principal Investigator to their Research Assistant or a Study Coordinator. We will review the key elements needed in a grant Research Design section that increase the likelihood of the successful completion of these tasks, thus protecting the data integrity.

Class Objectives:

  1. Define mock-up table and statistical analysis plan and explain why they are important to research planning.
  2. Define 3 best practices for data collection. 
  3. Define the key elements for the Research Assistant or Study Coordinator in the NIH Clinical Trial Protocol template
  4. Articulate the purpose of a Study Calendar or Schedule of Activities

Class Duration: This training will take approximately 1 hour (15-minute presentation and 45-minute Q&A).
