Presented at the 2014 NIDA International Forum, San Juan, Puerto Rico, June 13-16, 2014.
Carmen L. Rosa, MS (Center for the Clinical Trials Network, NIDA), Betty Tai, PhD (Center for the Clinical Trials Network, NIDA), Abigail G. Matthews, PhD (EMMES Corporation), Audrey J. Brooks, PhD (University of Arizona, DV Node), Daniel J. Feaster, PhD (University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, FNA Node).
This session presented information about the CTN Public Data Share website (now called the NIDA Data Share website), an electronic environment that allows data from completed clinical trials to be distributed to investigators and the public in order to promote new research, encourage further analyses, and disseminate information to the community. Secondary analyses produced from data sharing multiply the scientific contribution of the original research, optimizing the use of resources invested in the trials, as well as increasing scientific productivity.
Presentations in the session described the methods and results of secondary analyses conducted using the datasets, as well as the value of conducting secondary analyses to advance knowledge of evidence-based treatments.
