Register today for the upcoming webcast, Building and Effective and Efficient Database for Your Research, from the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM). This is a grant-sponsored webcast; it is complimentary for attendees.

Clinical research databases are often more complicated to build than they initially appear. Careful database design can save researchers and biostatisticians extensive amounts of time later by ensuring that data is stored in the most versatile and easy-to-analyzie format.

Whether researchers are designing a clinical trial or retrospective cohort study, building an effective database is a critical skill when conducting research.

Learning Objectives
  • Describe the planning process in creating a database to support human research studies, including variable selection and database design
  • Review data acquisition options to match accuracy and efficiency to project needs
  • Learn a basic approach to data cleaning, including automated check and manual data review, and tips for constructing datasets for analysis
