FINAL CALL FOR GCDMP© VOLUNTEERS
We are entering the final phase of the GCDMP© revisions and this is your last chance to get involved!
We are recruiting subject matter experts/strong writers to assist in the authorship of these revised chapters of the GCDMP©:
- Clinical Data Archival – covers regulation, components, and formats for study archive
- Assuring Data Quality – infrastructures and practices to ensure the quality of clinical data
- Database Lock – processes, checklists, and documentation for locking and closing study databases
Kick-off calls for each group will be held as soon as each group is fully populated with authors. You are committing to regular conference calls and work on literature review/writing tasks between calls. Expect to spend 1-3 hours weekly until first draft writing is underway.
Please send a CV and statement for interest in participating to [email protected]. Be sure to note which chapters you feel comfortable working on so we can populate these groups appropriately.
Additionally, we’d love to have a few Certified Clinical Data Managers to assist in drafting of items for the certification exam based on the new chapter text. Item writing training will be provided; you must already be certified to participate. This work will commence late summer as first draft text from the working chapter groups becomes available.
Finally, if you are an experienced researcher/research librarian comfortable with advanced searches and retrieving articles, please drop us an email if you’d be interested in talking more about how to assist with the revisions.
You can reach out to Mehdi Stambouli in the DC office at [email protected] to volunteer, and with your questions about the revision project and what that work entails. We hope to wrap things up on the new, revised GCDMP© this year and would love to welcome you to the revisions team!
