ADaM Core Theory and Application

On Demand

Upcoming Virtual Training Schedule: 28-30 Oct, 3-6pm ET (each day; total of 9 instruction hours)


Course Description:

The Analysis Data Model (ADaM) specifies principles for analysis datasets and standards for a subject-level analysis file and for a basic data structure, which can be used for a wide variety of analysis methods. The ADaM Core Theory and Application course provides an overview of the current implementation guide, data structures, and related materials for submissions.

Course Agenda

  • Module 1: ADaM in the Clinical Data Process
  • Module 2: ADaM Basics
  • Module 3: ADaM Basics – Fundamental Principles
  • Module 4: Traceability and Define-XML
  • Module 5: ADaM Rules and Best Practices
  • Module 6: ADaM Subject Level Analysis Dataset (ADSL)
  • Module 7: Basic Data Structure (BDS)
  • Module 8: ADaM Occurrence Data Structure (OCCDS)
  • Module 9: Summary of ADaM Data Structures
  • Module 10: ADaM Implementation Guide
  • Module 11: ADaM Supplemental Documents


Course-Level Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course, learners will be able to:

  • recognize the ADaM basics and general rules in order to build a foundation for ADaM implementation.
  • distinguish among ADaM data classes in order to build a foundation for ADaM implementation.
  • establish a basis for constructing different classes of ADaM datasets, including ADaM Subject Level Analysis Dataset (ADSL), ADaM Basic Data Structure (BDS) and ADaM Occurrence Data Structure (OCCDS).
  • determine when to create columns and rows in BDS, recognize the need for supportive data, and identify rows used for analysis and population specific records.
  • describe conformance rules, list the components of ADaM metadata and define.xml, as well as demonstrate working knowledge of the ADRG.
