Requirements for electronic data submission (for existing sites only):

Any existing site continuing to contribute data to UK CHIC must be able to provide data in the electronic format requested (see Data File Specifications), on all patients seen since 1st January 1996. The essential data items are demographics, aids events, antiretroviral treatment, and CD4 and viral loads measurements. Whilst other data items such as hepatitis, adherence, PCP prophylaxis and toxicity tests are desirable, it is understood that centres may not collect these data, but should aim towards collecting these data in future.

Sites should also be able to provide up to date data downloads every 12 months as requested, and be amenable to having their data checked and audited.

Policy for data sharing:

Proposals for research studies requiring access to data from existing and potential new collaborators are subject to review and approval by the UK CHIC Steering Committee; a proposal template is available to submit details of proposals; support for statistical analyses may be available from the study team.
