Best Practices

The caDSR Content Team has agreed to curation best practices that outline techniques for efficiently and effectively curating metadata in the caDSR, based on repeatable processes.  The Best Practices are intended for metadata curators who have taken the requisite courses in the caDSR training curriculum.  Please note - if you have a patient reported outcome or health related quality of life measure, questionnaire, or survey for curation please contact the NCI Curation Team at caDSR.RA@mail.nih.gov.

Best Practice for System-Generated Definitions
