Principles and methods of Data management
(including Epidata and PSPP)
Data Management is an essential aspect of Research. This begins from the time of developing a research question, protocol development, data collection, data analysis and maintaining the data base safe and usable. This is often called the data life cycle. There are simple principles of data management that are invaluable to know before starting any research project. Software can help in part of this process. These range from simple to complex, free to extremely expensive.
Our online course will teach the basic data life cycle, principles of data management, the use of a data friendly software EPIDATA 3.1 for windows as well as export to analysis software such as SPSS/ PSPP or STATA. We will also teach the very basics of PSPP, data analysis software.
Making a Clinical Research form as well as data dictionary is an essential step in any research study. We will teach this step by step.
Epidata will reduce errors in data entry and promote maintaining a high quality data. It is used for simple or programmed data entry and data documentation. Epidata handles simple forms or related systems Optimised documentation and error detection features.
Due to the prevailing situation we at the centre are planning to teach this course online
