Working Groups News
Dear Members of the Statistical Programming Community,

We would like to reach out and ask for your input on our new Data Standards for Non-Interventional Studies survey. We are attempting to get an overview of the challenges you have faced, from the perspective of the implementation of CDISC standards, for non-interventional studies. If you have tried to implement ADaM and/or SDTM for non-interventional studies, please take a few minutes to complete this very short survey. Your feedback is very much appreciated!

This survey closes 26th April.
