Work package 6: Integration in clinical research infrastructures
Brief description and aims of work
Based on task 2.3 of WP 2 describing requirements and specifications for the collaboration of the p-medicine environment with other research infrastructure initiatives the WP has the following objectives:
- Effective and interoperable integration of p-medicine tools in an international clinical trials infrastructure
- Evaluation of the usability and effectiveness of p-medicine tools used in a real clinical trial as part of the ECRIN
clinical trial infrastructure.
A survey conducted within ECRIN (European Clinical Research Infrastructures Network ) showed that nearly 80% of the institutions from the different national networks within ECRIN use a clinical data management system (CDMS) routinely, and 82 % of the centres are able to provide infrastructure and resources to support multinational trials. ECRIN presently is establishing certified data centres for clinical trial data management based on defined criteria.
