DAIDS requires CRSs conducting clinical research that meets the National Institute of Health (NIH) definition of a clinical trial to follow all applicable NIH, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), DAIDS policies and procedures, as well as DAIDS Clinical Trials Networks processes and procedures.
The Division of AIDS (DAIDS) Site Clinical Operations and Research Essentials (SCORE) Manual was developed to describe the operational requirements for Clinical Research Sites (CRSs) implementing DAIDS-sponsored studies within the DAIDS Clinical Trials Networks. However, many sections of the manual are broadly applicable to all clinical research and must be followed by CRSs conducting these studies. Access the DAIDS SCORE Manual here.
For the most frequently asked questions about the DAIDS Score Manual, see the SCORE FAQ page.
Please see the links below for DLP training related to topics in the SCORE Manual.
