I Work With an Unaffiliated Institution – Is There a Way to Access CanROC Data?
There is a growing movement being championed by research networks and government organizations towards the widespread sharing of clinical trial data. Sharing of data will assist in the advancement of science with less cost to third party organizations; a deeper knowledge base will be available for medical practice and regulatory decisions, and review of data may enhance patient safety.
Although there have yet to be any formal standards or regulations adopted, CanROC appreciates the possible benefits of data sharing. In anticipation of the release of formal guidelines, CanROC has adapted our publications policy to account for external data sharing. All potential investigators are encouraged to reach out to our collaborating organizations or committees to create formal partnerships. Otherwise, the CanROC Steering Committee will review all requests for data prior to making a decision.
