The NINDS CDE Team will be attending the International Stroke Conference from February 19-21, 2020. Please visit us at booth #643

Data Standards

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and other Federal agencies and international organizations have the common mission of developing data standards for clinical research. Through the efforts of subject-specific working groups, topic-driven data elements have been created. The first set of Common Data Elements (CDEs) for Stroke was developed in 2010. The Core data elements to be used by an investigator when beginning a research study in this disease/disorder are listed in the Start-up Resource Listing.

Many of the CDEs will overlap across study types, which allows for comparisons and meta-analysis across studies. Consistency of the data elements and the CDE formats is kept in order to ensure the ability to transfer critical medical information electronically from one center to another. This consistency also allows for continuity across different disease areas. The goals of the NINDS CDE initiative are to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of clinical research studies and clinical treatment, increase data quality, facilitate data sharing, and help educate new clinical investigators.

Organized by domains and sub-domains, often used in clinical studies, data standards include:

An overview of all Stroke CDE recommendations can be found in the Stroke CDE Highlight Summary document. For your reference, a zip file containing all the current Stroke CDE template CRF modules can be downloaded below.

The outline that follows includes all the CDEs associated with the CRF modules, organized by domain and sub-domain.

Overview

To develop the Stroke CDEs, the Stroke CDE Working Group divided into subgroups to focus on identifying and defining data elements in the domains of:

  • Stroke Presentation
  • Medical History and Prior Health Status
  • Stroke Types and Subtypes
  • Laboratory Tests and Vital Signs
  • Hospital Course and Acute Therapies
  • Long Term Therapies
  • Outcomes and Endpoints
  • Imaging
  • Biospecimens/ Biomarkers

Data standards include CDEs as well as case report form (CRF) Modules and Guidelines. The CRF Modules logically organize the CDEs for data collection, while the Guidelines provide further information about the CDEs. The CDEs, CRF Modules, and Guidelines presented are organized into domains which are intuitive and common in clinical research studies.

Download a “checklist” – Checklist for Stroke Clinical Trials icon for download word file OR Checklist for Other Stroke Clinical Studies icon for download word file – to help locate the CRF Modules in the Data Standards. Each checklist provides an outline of the CRF Modules that may be needed for a Stroke clinical trial/ other type of clinical study.

Roster

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) has currently formed an Oversight Committee to direct the updating and further development of Stroke CDEs. The Stroke CDE Committee is supported by the NINDS CDE Team.

Previously, the Stroke CDE Committee was comprised of nine different Subgroups. Chairs were appointed to lead the overall Working Group and the individual subgroups. The Working Group members actively developed the CDEs for their specific subgroups and had an opportunity to review and comment on the recommendations of the other subgroups.

The Working Group members served on either one or two subgroups. The subgroups began meeting by teleconference in July 2009 and continued to hold calls every four to six weeks through the spring of 2010 to define the CDEs for their domains and to recommend standardized, validated instruments for stroke research. The Stroke CDE Oversight Committee was created in 2012.
