Are you conducting a clinical trial that requires use of our instruments in a specialized format?

Through an easily arranged licensing agreement, WPS Rights & Permissions can provide you our copyrighted instrument(s), like the CDRS-R, in an industry standard metadata format that has been defined by the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC). 

The CDISC works with the FDA, US National Institutes of Health (NIH), and global organizations conducting clinical research to represent data collected in clinical trials in a standards format that can be more consistently analyzed and reviewed.  

This specialized format has also been incorporated into the National Cancer Institute Enterprise Vocabulary Services (NCI-EVS) thesaurus.
