Circular No. DGOS/PF4/2011/239 of 29 July 2011 on the organization and strengthening of clinical research has particularly caught our attention. It clearly mentions our business missions in Clinical Research Delegations and Innovation (DRCI) "... / ...l using methodological, data management, and biostatistics (editorial assistance, clinical trial design, management of databases) ... / ..." broken down into "... / ...to ensure the proper organization of data management in clinical research (documentation and quality of the database which are reported in clinical information collected during clinical trials) ... / ... "
We searched "data management" in the archives of circulars, decrees and other legislation on clinical research and we found nothing. Is this one of the first times he appears?
