The CMH-17 PMC Data Review Working Group (DRWG) maintains an active membership roster of participating voting members in the working group (WG). These members compose the review and voting electorate of the WG.
Prior to consideration for publication to the Handbook, each data set undergoes a review process that includes the following documents:
- Statistical analysis report
- Data set pedigree documentation
- Data table pages in Handbook format
The Voting Member will be required to review these documents and vote on them in a timely fashion (usually a 5 week review period). The member may vote Affirmative, Affirmative with Comment, Negative with Comment, or Abstain. During this review, the member should be looking for areas of concern and adherence to CMH-17 standards.
Typically, there are approximately 10 data sets to review per year. If no activity is received from a member for three successive voting cycles, the member will be removed from the DRWG Voting Membership.
How to join:
Membership to the committee may be requested by any person wishing to participate in reviewing data and providing comments which would improve the quality of the DRWG. Upon this request to the DRWG chairmen, this person will be added to the WG. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining.
