A fruitful program is being prepared for the 17th Annual Workshop in Japan for Clinical Data Management (CDM), which aims to help Clinical Data Managers improve the quality of clinical research and data management activities.

Clinical data is one of the most important resources in all research projects. It greatly promotes the development of medical treatments. But in order to utilize clinical data more effectively it needs to be efficiently sharable. The question of how to share data has become a key mission of CDM.

During this workshop attendees will discuss the idea that standardization is the key to success, as it enables sharing the data across projects, organizations, and nations. Attendees will also consider the standardization and optimization of the data handling process.

The workshop will give concrete examples from real-life experiences and discuss the difficulties, benefits, challenges, and future goals.

Attendees will get also have opportunities to network with colleagues from around the world and learn about international Clinical Data Management.

We look forward to seeing you in the workshop.
