Burlington, MA (PRWEB) March 13, 2013
Formedix is launching a series of learning webinars focusing on the everyday issues affecting those within the clinical trial industry including Clinical Data Managers, Standards Directors and Biostatisticians.
On March 14, 2013, Kevin Burges, Technical Business and Standards Director (the company’s very own “Standards Guru”) and CEO, Mark Wheeldon will address questions frequently asked of Formedix regarding Define.xml, combined with real world knowledge and expertise.
During the webinar, Mark Wheeldon and Kevin Burges will uncover the mystery of this CDISC standard, cover practical uses for Define in the course of an end-to-end clinical trial and, attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions of the experts at Formedix.
Formedix’s Mark Wheeldon comments that “often Define is ‘churned out’ at the far end as a last gasp submission deliverable and very few people think of managing libraries of all their dataset designs upfront in this vendor neutral standard, or producing detailed dataset specifications for sharing internally or with CROs.” Mr Wheeldon continues, “It is a constant battle to remove the thought of Define as just a submission deliverable. Define-XML creation is becoming more complex and more difficult to produce at the far end, whilst its role is becoming ever more important.” He goes on to say that “Define can be used to represent proprietary EDC, SDTM, and ADaM datasets and describe and map all the data transformation steps of clinical data - from acquisition through to SDTM dataset creation - yet today, Define is one of the most underused and undervalued of all the CDISC standards.”
