Data management

Data management in clinical studies

Data management refers to how research material is handled, organised and structured during the research process. Structured data management is a prerequisite for obtaining high quality data, which also simplifies the final analysis of the study. It is important that data management complies with the applicable regulations. Specific regulations exist for data management in clinical studies.

Clinical Studies Sweden offers support for data management in a clinical study. Researchers can obtain general advice and support on data management issues, such as data collection, structure and storage, and get help in creating a data management plan. Clinical Studies Sweden also offers assistance in developing Case Report Forms (CRF), either on paper or electronically (eCRF).
