Training resources on using Common Data Elements (CDEs) to select and standardize health research data.
Common Data Elements: Standardizing Data Collection
Making research data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) starts well before data collection. Designing studies with common data elements (CDEs) can enable data sharing and reuse. Librarians and other information professionals have an important role in educating and assisting researchers in the use of CDEs. Whether you are a research data librarian or assist researchers in finding sources, this one-hour, self-paced course from the National Library of Medicine can help you understand how you can support the use of common data elements (CDEs) in creating FAIR data.
