Working in conjunction with NCI has developed a collection of Standard Case Report Forms (CRFs) for use in developing new protocols. The project and its status are described here. The reuse of sections from standard CRFs helps to ensure that data collected in different studies is compatible and sharable. The metadata descriptions of these forms are in the caDSR Form Builder under the NCIP Context>Classifications>, and copies of each form have been exported and posted for downloaded on the NCI wiki.

Each standard CRF contains 3 sections:

  • Mandatory Questions
  • Optional Questions
  • Conditional Questions

The categories for which a standard CRF has been created are (click to download a Word version of this CRF):
