PSI Medical Statistics Careers Event
This event is aimed at students with an interest in the field of Medical Statistics, for example within pharmaceuticals, healthcare and/or medical research.
Clinical data has greater use beyond the original trial. These data can be used to further increase our scientific understanding of diseases and their treatment for the benefit of future patients. This re-use is a challenge, as both the data privacy and the regulatory framework continue to evolve. The members of this ESIG intend to lead the industry discussion in this area.
Our objectives include:
1. Promote an understanding of the challenges and responsibility organisations and statisticians have when re-using or sharing clinical data.
2. Improve understanding, implementation and examples of anonymisation methodologies within the context of clinical trial data sharing.
3. Influence and shape the environment and policies regarding clinical data sharing.
4. Collaborate with other groups and stakeholders in this area.
