Clinical Data Management Training in Singapore | Online CDM Courses

Clinical Data Management (CDM) is a set of processes and procedures followed for managing the huge amount of data that is generated during clinical studies. This management involves making data entries in a database, verifying the data, validating it, issuing and resolving of data queries etc.

The data handled during clinical research studies is primarily about the safety & efficacy of a new medicinal product, medical device or biologic such as a vaccine that is being studied. The data reaches the data management professionals from a variety of sources. It may come from clinical research sites where the investigators enter the data in case report forms (CRF's), or from other sources such as clinical laboratories that are used to test blood and other biological samples. Data from all sources is entered in a data management tool such as Oracle Clinical which helps ensure that the data is free from any errors. Data management professionals are expected to be familiar with the use of such tools. Oracle Clinical is the most widely used tool in the industry for managing data and thus having its basic understanding is a great advantage.

The Professional Diploma in Clinical Data Management conducted by JLI focuses on providing students with the knowledge of all the applicable processes followed in managing clinical trial data.
