Project 1: Common Data Elements

Man at Computer

The Center for Data Science is developing systems and tools to support collaborative nursing research across academic and practice settings. Through this effort, researchers are working to identify and join datasets in a common data repository that will enable the School of Nursing – and eventually other academic institutions to bring the power of an increased sample size to bear on research questions of interest. The data repository will enable researchers to share and compare nursing research insights and evidence that could be used to prevent, diagnose, treat and evaluate the health of individuals, families, communities and populations.

Initial research focuses include:

  • Cardiovascular
  • Symptom Science/Neurocognition
  • Oncology Patient-Reported Outcomes
