CDASH Extended Leadership Team (CELT)
The CELT is comprised of the CDASH Sub-team Leads and the Therapeutic Area (TA) Standards Leads. The CELT meets on a monthly basis in order to address cross-team issues,share relevant information, and ensure efficient resource utilization.
The CDASH team maintains its membership through recruitment of volunteer subject matter experts who can contribute to its various sub-teams with technical and/or therapeutic-based knowledge.
The CDASH training team works cooperatively with CDISC Education to develop course materials, identify and qualify new instructors, and deliver authoritative training on the CDASH standard through classroom and online courses. This team is comprised of CDASH members who are authorized CDISC trainers. (Michael J. Ward will reach out to Lauren Shinaberry, Gary Walker and Jerry Salyers to review and edit this section.)
To develop and maintain data acquisition standards, therapeutic area user guides and an implementation guide to enable the efficient and standardized recording, exchange, analysis, submission, and archiving of clinical research data and metadata.
The CDASH team develops data acquisition standards for clinical research that:
CDASH was formed in 2006 as a collaborative effort between CDISC and the Association of Clinical Research Organizations (ACRO) to specifically address FDA’s Critical Path Initiative Opportunity #45, Consensus on Standards for Case Report Forms. The first version of the basic content standards was published in 2008. Subsequently, the team released version 1-1.1 of the CDASH User Guide (available as ODM forms) in April 2012. Subsequently, CDASHIG v2.0 and CDASH Model v1.0 were released in September 2017, including the publication of its metadata in SHARE.
The team will continue to update the CDASH Implementation Guide, CDASH Model and education materials in order to support revisions to other CDISC standards; incorporate new domains and variables resulting from the CFAST TA Therapeutic Area User Guide development; and address new regulatory requirements.
