OUR TOPIC: Good Clinical Data Management Practices (GCDMP) Review and Update

SPEAKER: Marysasser Hedrick Holloway – Principal and Owner of H3CTC Data Management Consulting, Adjunct Instructor and Advisory Board Member for Durham Technical Community College, ACRP RTP Chapter President, GCDMP Chair and former SDCM Board Member


Ms. Holloway will provide an overview of the Good Clinical Data Management Practices (GCDMP) document, describe how it came to exist and define what has happened with the document throughout the years.  She will highlight the most recent revisions and explain the mapping or content alignment of the GCDMP to the Certified Clinical Data Manager (CCDM) certification exam. It is the Society for Clinical Data Management’s intent that the GCDMP be evidence-based, which has resulted in thousands of hours of content review and article searching. The document has been translated into Japanese and Mandarin and, as new chapters are produced, those translations are scheduled. There will also be time for discussion of how to contribute to chapter task forces, provide feedback, and access the document.

At the conclusion of this presentation, attendees should be able to:

1.     Define the following terms:  GCDMP, CCDM

2.    Apply for access to the good clinical data management practices document

3.   Determine which study team members would be most likely to seek and qualify for clinical data management certification

4.    Discuss the relevance of good clinical data management practices to clinical operations study start up processes

5.    Draw conclusions about the value of a collaborative data management plan

6.    Explain the relationship of the good clinical data management practices document to the preparation for the clinical data manager certification exam
