Ready to go!:
Ethics approval has been granted and the RedCAP database has been constructed and tested. You should all have received email instructions on how to get going.
The main steps are:
- Compile a list of who will be doing the data entry
- Send the list to Simon Craig who will give access to the training environment.
- Extract a list of medical records, and follow the emailed instructions to set up REDCap
- Once you are happy with the data entry process, get access to the real database and make a start!
Please let Simon know if there are any queries.
