CROS Academy Announces New Schedule and Initiative with WCRF

CROS Academy biostatistics data managementVerona, Italy (11 August 2016) – CROS Academy, the training branch of CROS NT, has announced its autumn schedule for biostatistics and clinical data management courses across Europe. The biostatistics courses are led by Thomas Zwingers, CROS NT’s Head of Statistical Consultancy, and Monica Pimazzoni, Director of Clinical Data Management, leads the clinical data management training.

CROS NT has joined forces with the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) throughout 2016 as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives to raise awareness and funds for preventable cancer research. Starting with this new lineup of courses, CROS NT is donating a percentage of the proceeds from its courses to WCRF.

The autumn 2016 schedule features two courses: Biostatistics Concepts and Methodology for Regulatory Concepts and Fundamentals of Clinical Data Management.

Our “Biostatistics Concepts and Methodology for Regulatory Concepts” course was introduced this spring and identifies the key issues of concern to regulatory authorities and will focus on ways to design and analyze clinical trials to avoid or minimize the impact of these issues.

Meanwhile, the “Fundamentals of Clinical Data Management” course covers key concepts including GCP processes, data management plans, CRF design, coding and data quality stressing the importance of data standards such as CDISC.
