Public Review of CureSCi Common Data Elements
The Cure Sickle Cell Initiative (CureSCi) Standard Forms/Common Data Elements (CDEs) working groups have released draft standard forms and CDEs (Pre-Release of Version 1.0) for public review. The working groups are in the process of finalizing these documents and strongly encourage input during this public review period.
The goals are to support the National Institutes of Health (NIH) data-sharing roadmap and to address challenges of varied data collection standards and difficulties in comparing data between studies. CDEs are recommended by the NIH Strategic Plan for Data Science to improve data quality, facilitate collection of data, data-sharing and comparison and reduce study start-up time and overall study cost.
Please download and review all of the following materials that are part of the public review package:
- Overview and Instructions
- Materials prepared by the working groups, which include case report forms (CRFs), summaries of work, and instrument recommendations,
- Roster of contributors
- Comments spreadsheet
Comments can be added to the comments spreadsheet, and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments are due January 31, 2021. Feel free to share this with any community members and colleagues – we welcome all input.
After this comment period, the CureSCi Standard Form/CDE working groups will review and revise the recommendations. Version 1.0 of the CureSCi recommendations will be posted in Spring 2021.
