We are happy to announce that our electronic data capture system, OpenClinica, is up and running! Active sites will notice electronic data forms for each study visit, in addition to Verification of Child Status and Late Entry forms.
The Verification of Child Status form must be completed for ALL children and before any other data form, regardless if the potential participant consents or declines participation in MiTy Kids.
The Late Entry form is to be completed for study visits that have been missed, replacing the full data form for the corresponding visit. Please, attempt to schedule every study visit, and ONLY use the Late Entry form as a last resort.
Remember! If you have used the Late Entry form to capture data, only mark the Late Entry form as “complete” in OpenClinica after the child has completed their participation in the study.
If you have any questions about data collection or the MiTy Kids study, please contact the MiTy Kids Coordinating Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your hard work and continued support!
The MiTy Kids Team
