item group definition

item group definition

The specification in an eClinical trial of a collection of items often clinically related to each other and useful to consider as a group. Item groups often have greater granularity in analysis datasets using the Study Data Tabulation Model (SDTM), which can distinguish different therapy types—e.g., study therapy, prior therapy, concomitant therapy, protocol forbidden therapies, rescue therapies.
