Seneca launches course for clinical data management
April 27, 2022
TORONTO – With the healthcare sector short on skilled employees qualified to handle, the capture and management of clinical data collected by sites, Seneca is launching Essentials of Clinical Data Management and Electronic Data Capture (EDC), a 14-week online course designed to help fill this gap.
Taught by industry professionals, the in-depth course is the only one of its kind in Canada that is specifically designed for those with some healthcare or clinical research industry knowledge, but little to no data management or programming experience.
It will allow participants to enhance their skills in data management, including design and development of an effective Electronic Data Capture program for clinical researchers, industry requirements and documentation and data handling concepts.
“We’ve heard from our industry partners that there is an urgent need for workers capable of managing clinical data,” said Greg Staios (pictured), program co-ordinator. “This course would be a great option for anyone already working in healthcare who is interested in the data management side of the sector.”
Topics covered include the importance of clinical data management, database building and essential data management principles. Graduates will be prepared to take on roles in clinical data management and utilize electronic data capture programs.
Seneca will welcome its first intake for Essentials of Clinical Data Management and Electronic Data Capture beginning May 18. The course is open to anyone who has prior experience with clinical research principles.
Information on how to register is available on Seneca’s website.
