New to CDISC Standards? Attend our workshop geared to getting you started with standards to amplify the full potential of data, drive operational efficiencies and expedite the regulatory review process. The workshop goes over examples of the standards, along with how to build them into the process of writing a protocol, collecting and tabulating data, and using the data in analysis.  The CDISC Data Exchange standards are reviewed and the CDISC Library is discussed.
