The National Institute on Drug Abuse Clinical Trials Network (NIDA CTN) employs a variety of standard data collection instruments to collect data captured both for clinical research and for electronic health records (EHRs) of patients.

The common data elements (CDEs) created for the NIDA CTN have been organized into form-specific listings called data collection instruments. These are categorized for the relevant usage of the instrument under the appropriate data collection environment.

Below, select the data collection environment for your use. A list of applicable data collection Instruments will be displayed.

Select the data collection Instrument name to view the CDEs found on the individual Instrument. With the listing of CDEs, options are also provided to download reports for these CDEs, download a representation of the CDEs on a Sample form, and review available information about published medical literature on the use of the Instrument.
