Statistical programming for clinical trials is moving towards a multi-language environment where submissions to regulatory agencies may include code written in SAS, R and other languages (e.g. python, STATA, etc). The mission of this working group is to develop the content for a process to certify that statistical programmers have the basic skills to function effectively in a mixed SAS and R clinical trial programming environment.
Topics will include:
- FDA CDISC Standards
- Relevant SAS and R data structures
- The basics of managing SAS and R environments
- Reporting methods in SAS and R
- Developing tests to compare the results of SAS and R analyses.
