RIF Study Protocol Template

The study protocol is a document that delineates the objectives, background, methods and importance of the research study being proposed and may specify how CMS data files will support particular study aims.

When you submit your initial data request materials to ResDAC, please include the protocol approved by your funder.  Only if you have no such document should the RIF Study Protocol Template be completed (draft document in Word format please).
