Data collection and Case Report Forms (CRFs)

How data is collected and analysed should be considered in the initial phases of study design and data collection methods, and systems should be designed to collect and store data in a proportionate way. Electronic systems to be used as part of data collection and storage require a validation process which is proportionate to the systems used.  All research staff undertaking UH Bristol sponsored research who process data are responsible for ensuring the applicable data management standards are met as described in SOP 012 Study Data.
