Proper data collection seems to be very logic in conducting research. But in some research you have to rely on others who perform the data collection. Follow these guidelines to make sure your data set is accurate, reliable and retrievable:
- Supporting and monitoring data collectors
- Supporting and monitoring data entry clerks
- Managing data flow
- Data provided by third parties
- Data sharing
- Please note, that there are stricter requirements (trial master file and eCRF e.g.) for Clinical Trials with pharmaceuticals and Medical devices that fall under GCP regulation/ WMO-high/medium risk.
