Adapting data management education to support clinical research projects in an academic medical center

In this 2019 paper written by New York University School of Medicine's Kevin B. Read, the topic of clinical research data management (CRDM) is discussed, particularly in its application at the NYU Health Sciences Library. Identifying a strong need by the clinical research community at the university for CRDM training, Read—acting as the Data Services Librarian and Data Discovery Lead—developed curriculum to support such a mission and offered training. This article details his journey as such, ending with supporting data and a strong feeling that the end result is a "research community being better trained, more compliant, and increasingly aware of established institutional workflows for clinical research."
