Meeting notes - Consensus Conference on Data Acquisition, Quality & Curation for Observational Research Designs (DAQCORD) Sept. 18 – 19, 2018
Experts in clinical research design, bioinformatics, data management, biomarker and therapy development, and other relevant fields were invited to participate in a consensus conference. A modified Delphi process was used to reach agreement on the items and structure for the DAQCORD self-assessment and reporting tool. Prior to the meeting, participants received preparatory information by email and webinars to complete a pre-meeting survey (Round 1). During the meeting, participants reviewed, discussed and refined the survey in an iterative process (Rounds 2 and 3), and also developed a plan for implementation.
