datasetposted on 27.08.2019 by Victoria Yorke-Edwards, Sharon Love, Sarah Lensen, Matt Sydes
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This is data from a survey of United Kingdom Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC) registered Clinical Trial Units (CTUs) carried out in November 2018. It asked questions about central and on-site monitoring in phase III randomised CTIMPS.
A paper detailing the methodology and findings has been published: Love, S.B., Yorke-Edwards, V., Lensen, S. et al. Monitoring in practice – How are UK academic clinical trials monitored? A survey. Trials 21, 59 (2020)
Screenshots of the online survey, a variable dictionary, and the cleaned, anonymised dataset are provided. Both the data and the variable dictionary are provided in .txt files, with columns separated by | [pipe/ vertical bar]. The screenshots are provided as a .pdf file
In Version 2 the filename for the Questionnaire was updated: the contents remain unchanged. In Version 3 the description and references were updated to include the publication associated with this dataset.
