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.
