Hi Claire, dear all,
now I see where you are heading.
From WHO and other institutions within and across countries there are
many ongoing initiatives to define variable level information to guide
and harmonize novel studies
I wonder whether we should:
a.) Reference those endeavours and make a recommendation as to what to
use for which purpose. This is a lot given the ambitous time frame.
b.) Setup our own list at the variable / data element level.
I am strongly inclined to realize a.
THanks four your opinion.
